Would you eat human flesh?

I mean seriously – lets say it was an experiment totally sanctioned by the health board right – lets say they needed a half dozen people to eat a slice of human flesh for some totally unknown reason – you are not actually told what the reason is other than the test is not whether […]

El Conio The Magnificent

What do you get if you cross some first year art school students with some litter and a traffic cone?

You get “El Conio The Magnificent” an explanation of how traffic cones end up in the River Kelvin.

Oh to be a student again – it was a simpler time!

Do you want to join my Urban Alliance?

This is a three part post – today the setup and later all going well will be the reveal – I will then give you a bit of time to think before I act. This will be a hard task my friends – I do not want to say at this stage what it is […]

Fly Tying – Milngavie Style!

So I decided I needed some contact with other anglers and the best place for that was at the fly tying class along at Milngavie (rather than standing in the freezing cold chasing Grayling, some people might say actual fishing for a change) – an added bonus was that Jim from Palewatery was visiting to […]

It is cold – I want to see an olive.

One month until the start of the season and it is still very cold.

I am currently wondering if the temperature is going to rise and give us a good start to the season. The first fly we should all be looking out for are “Large Dark Olives” – an absolutely lovely wee […]

Having a baby has […]

Harvesting The Bush!

It was after I had been away for a weekend some time ago with the boys for some intensive fishing (as opposed to catching) that the madness struck – I make no excuses for it – when you go away for a long weekend fishing all you do is think trout, talk about […]

I Know Some Stairs…

I know some stairs that lead to a path – you get to the stairs via a busy wee side street. When I was much younger I used to hang around that street corner getting up to mischief. Now pulling my waders on beside my car feels like a bit of mischief – especially if […]

Nicolas Valentin – the Glasgow Angling Centre Dude!

Nicolas Valentin is an employee of the Glasgow Angling Centre – I have got to admit he is one of the guys that actually changed my mind about the place – I used to stare at the rows of rods through surly eyes and complain at the lack of soul the whole store had!

For […]

Autumn – there is no escape!

I went for a walk along the Kelvin today and was pretty shocked by two things.

Firstly, it is bloody Autumn – sure I knew it was on the way however I appear to have missed the actual start of it – one moment I was looking out a pair of shorts for what we […]
