I had absolutely no idea when I went online looking for some cheap mouse traps what I would find.
I have been bothered by the odd mouse for a while now, it started with a scratching in my attic and then progressed to the wee beasts nipping across the floor when I was getting the [...]
I love getting emails from you guys:

We have not had one of these in while I said to myself as I took this picture when I was stopped at some traffic lights.
As you can see, a company has decided to call themselves after the mighty K.
Kelvinography is the name of spotting stuff named after the Kelvin.
I have met hundreds of people fishing the Kelvin over the years.
All different types of people and all from different backgrounds. I have met guys who are super intelligent and people I am surprised that they managed to negotiate their way on to a bus to get to the river. I have met arrogant [...]

Aye, you know it is Autumn when you get to a burn and some shopping trolleys are emerging on the banks.
I arrived at the burn and quickly set up my wee Tenkara outfit. The burn was at a good height and I fished a few pools without any success. This was weird however I [...]
