Points to keep in mind

Well, you learn something new every time you go fishing. I think I learned two things last night.

1. Don’t bother going fishing in this crazy heat until it is even approaching dark (ie afer 6pm) 2. If you have difficulty in tying on a size 22 CDC fly when it is light it [...]

sHARP & To the Point

Had a mammoth session yesterday- however modesty forces me to keep this a short and sharp post. An afternoon session on the Kelvin with a couple of trout under my belt and then an evening session down on my other favourite river (or rather part of river)

Needless to say, the Kelvin session was [...]

Sedgetastico

So Emmanuelle and I met Mike and Steve on our other river for a spot of evening action from around 6pm onwards. We got off to a slow start with only a couple of smaller trout caught, however Steve powered ahead picking up trout consistently on a deer hair Sedge. Emmanuelle caught this corker of [...]

A nice evening session.

So it was a nice evening down at the other river I fish on Thursday evening. It was warm with plenty of flies on the water but the fish were taking there time responding, it was not until 10-11 that trout started to properly rise. It is funny that as this season on th erivers [...]

Fancy a picnic with some friends dear ?

So today was a nice day out with my wife, my niece, my fishing buddy Emmanuelle, his partner and his 6 month old baby. It was planned last week at my little barbeque, we were supposed to go to the Tummel but at the last minute decided to go to New Lanark instead. We went [...]

Fancy a romantic evening by the river darling?

So I managed to wangle a lift to my other river under the guise of a romantic evening by the river. There is Claire over there to the right of that cow Claire read a magazine whilst I fished. I had to coal carry her across a couple of burns (which she found fun although [...]

Not so much an attack more a leisurely stroll

So last weekend Alex, Mike and I headed up North for a little camping adventure. Alex and I travelled by train through to Edinburgh where we met Mike and then shot up to the River Tummel for the first leg of the adventure. When we arrived at the Tummel an angler came up to us [...]

Big River Bonanza

So I and a couple of pals (Mike & Alex) are going away for a few days fishing and camping. It is going to be a bit of a big river bonanza as on Friday we should be fishing the Tummel, Saturday the River Don and on Sunday the River Tay. Should be good fun!!. [...]

2nd heat of the Scottish rivers championship

So I was controlling today for the Scottish rivers championship on the River Tummel. A controller is essentially someone that tags along with the angler making sure that they start and stop when required, are fishing with the correct hook size and measure all fish caught. I also got to carry the spare rod. In [...]

Do you ever get days like this?

I want to know how on Monday I managed to blank in such spectacular style. Not on the Kelvin this time but at my other special little place. Last week I at least hooked trout albeit they managed to get away, I had deceived the trout into taking my fly. That was satisfying, even though [...]
