Kelvin account opened – 5/2

Bugger it!

All this talk of freezing cold temps and slow start to the season has really gotten on my goat. Consequently I decided that enough was enough and it was actually time to cast a fly and have a look for myself. After work I bolted to the river to find it looking barren [...]

One of my favorite old Spring photos, I parked the car at the West End to meet this fella on the windscreen!

There used to be…

Not long ago on the Kelvin there used to be not that many guys fishing the river for trout. Sometimes I would go whole months without meeting another fly angler..

Urban fly fishing on the Kelvin..

I give a wry smile to myself when I meet guys who say they have been fishing the [...]

Opening Celebration! (I think)

As you can see from the last post conditions on the Saturday were not exactly ideal for trout fishing. It was freezing however I managed to combat that by wearing two pairs of thermal long-johns, a thermal vest and some layers. This only meant my hands were exposed to the elements and within minutes they [...]

2013 Resolutions Required ..I guess!

I suppose I need to write some kind of 2013 resolution post as all the cool kids are doing them these days. So what I should really do is look at last year and what I did poorly and then look at this year and see what I can do better.

Quite frankly I [...]

Release the Hounds (Forum Reports)

I had forgotten how good having a forum was, now I get to read what other guys on the Kelvin get up to. This post is taken directly from the forum and I think shows the nature of urban fishing at its best.

Trout and Salmon Guru Aleister Polson writes about a regular issue with [...]

Vermin Traps

I had absolutely no idea when I went online looking for some cheap mouse traps what I would find.
