Winter Kelvin

Memory Representation

So my beloved wife and I have been talking for literally years about buying some kind of painting or a print for our house. You know how it goes, she sees something that is totally weird that costs a fortune that has been mass produced by some factory that you just know will end […]

Winter Projects – Vice Action.

Well that was a quick season.

No sooner than it was over I was thinking about next year and planning some winter projects. I am not a big fan of freezing my balls off hunting for Grayling and anyway looking at the photos on facebook it appears now to just be an excuse […]

Wilsoning it!

I have been watching John Wilson’s (the Glasgow one not the one that blanked me at the Glasgow Angling Centre) videos on the River Kelvin Fisher’s facebook page (the good one, not the shite one) with a mixture of envy and admiration.
