Youthfully Serious

Late 80’sI caught it on a mepp in the Forth n’ Clyde

A few days have passed…

Well, a few days of interesting life has past since we last spoke.

Yesterday I got the Whip out and took the boy to the canal for an hour – I only had the one worm and needless to say I believe the stories I have heard about the declining population […]

Sneaky Bastard!

To be fair the beast was only doing what the beasts do – looking at lunch!

I walked along the Forth n’ Clyde Canal today – my plan was to take some photos of the works that have been carried out on the banks of the Kelvin however I befriended a […]

Murky Water = Nil Pike

What I wanted to do was get the boy and wife in the car and head for the hills for a couple of hours – I could have a cast at trout in a burn and the family could watch at a respectable distance – no doubt impressed not only by my fish […]
