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 […]

Hurricane Bawbag Hits Scotland

Our very own Hurricane has been given a name in true style – personally I noticed it was a bit breezy when a large metal bin went flying down Anniesland Cross high street towards a gent who then actually punched the thing sending it banging into a taxi.

I love it when a plan…God Dammit !

It has […]

Thanking you guys!

A quick thanks to everyone who has sent me congratulations via the comments or email – I have hardly had a chance to get on the computer never mind make a post or join in the forum banter.

I had this dream that I may manage a few days off trout fishing while I am […]

2nd Son Strikes the Planet!

Number 2 Son

More Kelvingrove Carnage Video – Royal Wedding London versus Glasgow

 

Personally I am glad I was nowhere near – instead I was receiving a face full of nettles at the Clyde – more on that hilarious story later!

Massive Rammy on the Banks of the Kelvin!(Warning bad language and violence)

While everyone else was either fishing or watching the Royal Wedding some folk decided to have a riot down in Kelvingrove Park on the banks of the Kelvin – the party was organised on facebook and ended with mounted police charging party goers.

Mounted police moved in to disperse revellers after organisers […]
