A bloody great hole in my foot!

So just after I had sent my waders for a full hole repair job to Diver Dave I then spent a few nervous trips thinking I had a leak – turned out it was just the cold and not creeping water in my nether regions.

Anyway, last time I was out I noticed a distinct [...]

Camo Beret – Cool as fu….

You wear a camouflage beret while you are fishing then you are as cool as Top Cat in my book.

Kelvin Angling Association EGM

So it is only a couple of days until the crazy kids that make up the river Kelvin angling fraternity meet up once more to discuss the parentage of the committee! I wonder what will happen this year – shock accusations, heartening confessions, threats of handbags at dawn – I think we have had them [...]

Why the .net is good for your fishing!

I really enjoy having a fishing blog – you may have noticed this over the years!

I enjoy it so much I recommend everyone has one – because of the success of Urban Fly Fisher everyone at one point appeared to want to create a website dedicated to the Kelvin
