I have a couple of bugbears when meeting and talking to other anglers (not the two chaps I met this evening) but other guys who shall remain nameless. One of my bugbears is some guys ability to tell the size of a trout by the way it rises. Oh sure, I am quite aware that [...]
I appear to have missed out posting some outings over the last few weeks however to be honest there has not been much to write home about.
Usually time off work means extra fishing however after my family holiday to Holland I just never got around to heading out after trout. Well, that is not [...]
Fishing has been slow of late for a few reasons. One is that I have not had the chance to have my usual couple of hour sessions on the Kelvin due to living just too far out of reach to make it feasible. This will be less of an issue come July when the kids [...]
It was one of those days that had everything going for it – good pals, half decent weather and a fairly good fishing pass allowing me to access a few fishing spots. However, it turned out to be one of those days that turned into “its not just about catching fish”

I looked him straight in the eye and said “Awright Mate”
He carried on and I fished the pool in front of him.
It was all a bit awkward!
So I managed a sneaky wee flexi day from work today purely because of a childcare issue so I was presented with the opportunity to check out the Kelvin as it has pretty much been unmolested from me for a week or so.
Lord Kelvin making a note of how many times he has [...]
in Kelvingrove Park looking downstream. The river is on its bones
You can see the Giant Hogweed on the left hand bank. It is some size this year…
Looking upstream, as I stood here I noticed some small trout leaping out the water. I was surprised to see a reasonable flow through [...]
