What NOT to do if you ever go to the Glasgow Angling Centre open weekend

Okay so it is my first weekend free after being back at work – I wanted to continue my anglingtastic extravaganza after the Friday nights shenanigans so I visited the Glasgow Angling Centre today as it was the open day – tragically it all went horribly wrong – as usual I have worked out how [...]

Hey – you guys in the states!!

Hey – you guys, aye – you and you, and quite possibly you – you guys had better keep an eye on your outgoing man at the top – seems he is bringing in a pile of new laws on the quiet.

Some of them you are just not going to like:

PETA and the new anti fishing campaign – fishing blog reactions!

While reading some other fishing blogs I could not help notice people are discussing the new ”People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals” (PETA) anti fishing campaign.

In case you did not know PETA campaign for any kind of injustice against animals, for example: eating them, using their skin for clothes (wool & leather etc), [...]

We are gathered here today…

North Country Angler wrote a great post about death and dying – well, not really great – more sombre and well written – you know what I mean!

Anyway, it got me thinking – he rose some very good points about where he wanted his ashes to be scattered and where probably they should not [...]

Happy (belated) 5th Birthday to Me…

I was looking over at Tamanawis and noticed he was having a wee birthday. I then decided to have a look at my own stats and noticed that I have just past my own 5th birthday of blogging about fishing.

Purchased one of these recently. I’ve had six sea trout with it, but no [...]

Deary Deary Me!

There are two very real reasons why you do not see many pictures of me on my blog. Firstly not many of my pals carry cameras and the ones that do always forget to charge them and secondly I always end up looking like a gimp.

I rest my case.

Still, it is better [...]

Attack Force “Delta Flies”

Look at em’, all standing to attention like soldiers, like a trained fighting force – the elite! Like the SAS – all ready to attack the rivers full force. Just waiting for their orders although in this case it will be an order to land gently possibly several feet away from a rising trout – [...]

Early Season Flies – Part Two

Anyway, what was I talking about? Oh yes, flies and imitations. Well another three handy flies to have at this time of year also cover a variety of insects – and two of them are not dry flies they are emergers.

Remember in part one we were talking about the Large Dark Olive – [...]
