Went fishing on the Kelvin after work for an hour. River at a great height and the color of strong tea without the milk. Caught nothing however lots of trout rising….
The undergrowth is now at its wildest and it is strange to think that the end of the season is on […]
Good evenings fishing interrupted by chap with his jeans and pants at his ankles in the bushes, he coughed and tried to pull them up.
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…

We have now entered the longest spell of hot weather since 2006 and by heck the rivers (and fishing) show it. This weather is only good for one thing.
Hot weather – only good for one thing!
The level of the Kelvin has dropped significantly and even in the last week the Allander dropped […]
It is doing ok. It could be better; a lot better however it could be a lot worse like last summer when it was just totally shite. What we need right now is some rain to liven thing sup a bit, not the torrential months lasting kind more the couple of days “just enough to […]
So I have in fact had an eventful week or so which did in fact involve some fishing.
A bridge over the Luggie..
I met Jim Burns down at a wee bridge over the Luggie as it is now on the Kelvin permit. I have been getting messages from @JBrownisky on Twitter who has […]
I attended a meeting up at Glasgow University a while ago, it was hosted by Willie Yeomans and was introducing CRIMP.
CRIMP is a citizen science project which aims to provide training in riverfly monitoring to volunteers across the eight counties of the River Clyde catchment. Riverfly monitoring can help protect the quality of our […]
It has been a busy week or so in this neck of the woods. I have managed a few last minute sessions on the Kelvin and they have all went well with a few trout caught. Nothing of the size of last week’s mighty brute but nice trout none the less. The Yellow […]
Lets just say, I am glad I took my net!
Yes, weird bee spray painter, thank you I am!
