A rather nice update…

A rather nice update from Rob Wilson, a frequent Kelvin fisher

I headed out early this morning, and wandered down from my house as far as the art galleries. The river was pretty coloured, and no real sign of any fish. On the way back, despite the rain coming back on, the water was clearing and fish had started rising. Took a beauty from the last stretch of the park, photo is a bit rushed after a great fight, and I had a small crowd by that time. I fished back up to the Botanics and had another five fish. Had another few hours tonight after a bit of diy, caught another four. Seemed to be a day for spectators – a fox sat a rods length away on the bank and watched me catch my last two!

    Hey Bryan,

    What flies are you using ? I know I have been having some success with small, like tiny, size 18-20 F flies. Failing that I have just been searching with a Knlinkhammer.
    I have heard that there are guys that catch the juvenile trout to use as Pike bait, maybe they left the bodies behind ?

    Hi George,

    To be fair Rob seems to be doing better than me at the moment- I have been busy busy busy to do much serious river action !
