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 […]

Decision: Pike or Trout?

So I had one evening to go fishing and consequently a decision to make – would it be Pike or Trout?

It was the conditions that made me wonder – you see I pretty much can only get out after 7pm once the boys are put to bed which pretty drastically cuts down on fishing […]

Pike trip ..beside the loch!

It is half five .. dawn is approaching .. I can hear bait fish …not see them as dawn is approaching ! Need to be at work for half nine!

Dusk – flat calm!

What is it they say – the biggerthere the wave the bigger the fly – well there is no wave and my flies are tiny. I am sitting here beside this lovely wee lake typing this – I will post it when I get some kind of reception on my phone. It has been boiling […]

Lake district fishing!

Lucky Hat = Happy Face

I wanted to be at the water before the hint of dawn however fishing buddy […]

Picky Pike!

Two sessions of Pike fishing since we last spoke – both strange for different reasons – both occasions I have been using my Loop Pike Booster with a floating 9WF line, 3 foot 30lb leader and a bizarre EP fibre monstrosity.

The First Session (overcast, warm – lasted 3 hours)

Scanning with Polaroids

The dawn that never was..

Up at 0300 on Saturday morning for a dawn raid on a Pike venue – dawn was scheduled for 0430 however when the guys came to pick me up just before 0400 (by jings early as well) the dawn was already in the sky – by the time we got to the venue it was […]

Winterfest Pike Fishing

The North Glasgow Fly Dressers decided to have a winterfest day out fishing for Pike on a trout loch not far from Glasgow. “Stuffed full of em’” Alberto said – I thought it may be too cold – “it is not about the fishing” he said – “it is about the company and chat – […]
