The Ladies? Oh you mean the bottom scum sucking leaches right?

Grayling on the bank

I love Grayling, I just hate people talking about them as if they were anything but a fish.

I had chat with my pal Campbell about this on the phone as I staggered up the road from the train station home after a hard days grafting.

Grayling fishing a few years ago used to be […]

Moving the home base!

I often state that I have the oldest running fly fishing blog and that comes with a rather interesting issue. It means that over the years you guys come to know a little bit about my personal life not just about my fishing exploits. I mean, you guys were with me when a finished my […]

An uneventful birthday…

Well, I do not know if it will be or wont be as it is actually next week and I am saying it is uneventful as it is my last year of being in my 30s so in the grand scheme of things it is not like a “big” birthday yet is kinda symbolic…….and breathe!

We are going hunting boys!

Once the afternoon looked as if it was heating up some I got the boys into their warm coats and headed along to the Kelvin. I had heard stories of trout in some rivers still responding to olives even though it was snowing and wanted to see if I was being premature in dismissing the […]
