Greetings New People! (and Urban Veterans)

Greeting new readers and urban veterans – if you are a long time reader then do not switch off as you may find out something interesting.

Visitors have jumped in the last month or so and I thought I would tell you again how to access the content of Urban Fly Fisher as well as […]

Shock Expose:Hardy used subliminal sex messages in its adverts!

(I wrote this post back in February 2011 – I have no idea whether they still use sex to sell fly fishing gear #grin#)

Oh Hardy – you used to be all butlers and stupidly expensive reels – where did it all go horribly wrong?

So I got home […]

Benches…

The talk of the steamy are the two park benches that are on the falls at the Sea Pool on the Kelvin.

You can see a newspaper tucked into it!

They are going to be removed very soon using a chainsaw so that they cannot be put back again. Personally I will be sorry […]

A View from the Chair.. (The Ultimate Urban Fisher Accessory)

Oh the Kelvin fishers, I just love them.

You can even see a "Daily record" tucked into it..

What makes this whole scene a lot more comedic is when you realise the bench is in fact in the middle of a weir…

At least it is a nice view..

Assholes spoil my day!

How do you deal with poaching? – not the serious big stuff involving nets and and stuff I am talking about the low level stuff involving a guys just fishing the river without a permit?

I managed a couple of hours on Sunday afternoon and it was spoiled by having to talk to a few […]

I am running for Yorkhill Hospital!

Chaps, you may or not be aware that I have not exactly been the fittest of specimens over the last year or so. However, in February I decided to get myself a little fitter and started doing a spot of jogging, this then led on to having a goal of doing a 10k race (so […]

Like an early birthday present…

After my post last week when I posted my wee batch of flies Marcel Karssies through Facebook said he would send me a few in the post – what arrived was a huge goody […]

Listen in for a special surprise!

 

Kelvin AGM Madness, Glasgow Angling Centre U Turn on Wader Warranties and other Random Acts of Violence..

I am man enough to admit I was a wee bit nervous about the Kelvin Angling Association AGM – I mean, up on that stage in front of a couple of hundred intellectuals ready to start an intense debate on the finer points of the books and river management. I was thinking maybe that the […]

Way Back When?

I always think that winter and around the turn of the year is a time of reflection. I tend to look back at this diary more than I actually write in it and tend to make unrealistic plans for the future. I know that I am probably not going to get away for that week […]
