A blog without links…

Every now and again I come across a really good fly fishing blog – great content, good photos and started fairly recently. By recently I mean maybe in the last 6 months – usually the blog is on blogger as that is where most people start out before moving on to a platform that you [...]

Alas Griff Rhys Jones

I never really found Griff Rhys Jones funny even when he was part of Alas Smith & Jones – the other guy was always funnier – the fat one.

So I did not find it in the least bit funny when Jones asked canoeists and boaters to disrupt the enjoyment of anglers who are minding [...]

And Now For Some Great Scottish Muzic!

Ok – I am away on holidays for a bit – hopefully catching Bass, Mackeral and Sea Trout off the Cornish Coast or quite possibly catching Carp, Roach and Tench in a stocked pond.

Robbieredball.net – Netted!

A site run by a fly fishing anarchist intent on exposing what he perceived as being the incompetent running of his local club the Loch Lomond Angling Improvement Association has been instructed to close its doors by his web hosts.

The site started simply enough – one mans dream of sharing his passion for a [...]

Anglers urged to put back salmon – Lord Kelvin senses trouble!

So anglers in Scotland are being urged to put back all spring salmon caught due to the runs collapsing – tragic – to be fair I think all Salmon in the Kelvin should be returned – the fact yer granny likes a bit of salmon is not good enough an excuse in my book to [...]
