Aaaaaand back to the “K”

For trout fishing the Kelvin has been absolutely bloody awful for over a month now. I thought thas as we did not have any major downpours over the weekend it would be ok for Sunday night however as soon as I arrived I wondered why it was a dirty brown – it was fishable however only just.

Fishable – only just!

I met Stephen (who is also a Crown Bailiff) on the river (he also would not let me throw any streamers as it was the Sabbath) and we had a few hours casting to incredibly picky trout that I suspected were small.

Stephen surveys…

Stephen showed me a technique to attract the bats to you whereby you rub your thumb and index finger together. I have no idea why you would want to do that. That was about as exciting as the few hours got – oh we each had boils at our fly of what could have been nice trout.

We decided if the Kelvin remains pish for trout we would attack the Pike.

Over and Out!



I really enjoy reading your comments - say something!

    Out tonight and as you said Alistair trout were picky but where Stephen was standing with his rod pointing to the river held a baeuty of a trout. Had another go at the good size trout we had tried for last time we were out. Covered it with dry fly ,it had a look but did not like the look of it only got one go at it. Sly sod.

    Was the river in better condition Jim? I would have liked to get out last night however the youngest has the chicken pox which has resulted in him not going to bed – which means no fishing for me 🙂

    Still had a bit of colour, if only we could get a good stretch of dry weather. Have seen salmon sitting in a few places.
