Last minute fishing!!!

Sometimes last minute fishing trips can be quite good, anything can happen, you can turn up and there is a lovely hatch or you are there just at that point when the trout just seem to want to eat just about any old fly (generally any old fly is the one I use anyway). The [...]

A Cracking Hour and a Half Fly Fishing!!

So I had a very short session today down at one of the tributaries. I had to wait in for a phone call about a job so did not have much time. It was cold, so cold that I could see my breath. After I had caught my first trout…. …..my hands were pretty cold [...]

Just one of those nights!!!

I realised almost instantly that I had made a wrong decision. Ordinarily it would not have mattered I would just give my better half a phone but this time it was different: I had lent her my mobile phone as she was going on a night out. I had arranged for my future mother in [...]

Raining!!! Caught at the last min…

It’s now pissing down with rain out there. It has been warm and overcast all day, I suppose threatening it really but I thought like yesterday it would not come to anything. I was supposed to be fishing the River Gryffe and was going to get the train but my better half decided to give [...]

Fantastic Small Stream Action! + some pretty good news!!

So I went along to one of the Kelvin tributaries for a little evening session, after that heavy rain it was up around a foot and a little dirty. There was fish rising so I knew it was worth a bash.. I was using my little Tea Stick rod which is absolutley perfect for this [...]

Fishing the Leven

In a smilar vein to my Urban Fly Fishing on the Kelvin site we have a website entitled “Fishing the Leven”. Some nice images of the River Leven, for my American readers the Leven is a river that runs out of Loch Lomond into the Clyde. The Kelvin also runs into the Clyde but is [...]

Small Stream Action (or rather the lack of it)

So I was thrown out the house today as my fiancé had someone coming around to give here a “preview” of what her make up would look like on our wedding day. “You will just have to go fishing” She said! “If you insist”

As it turned out the smaller tributary was pretty low. Yesterday [...]

Evening Session!

So a couple of friends and I went to our little spot on the other river that we know for an evening session. It was hard fishing from the outset, it was totally in contrast to the other evening when it was hard fishing but at least there was plenty of fish actually rising. Emanuele [...]

Rubbish!

So Claire wanted to go to a shop that ran next to one of the Kelvin tributaries. First of all I was impressed as I could see some trout rising right next to a wall that is part of a supermarket. The water “ok” although there was a couple of shopping trolleys and a rather [...]

Evening session, could have been worse!

Hiya, so I got a text at around 6pm asking me if I wanted to go for an evening session on another river. It was roasting hot, not a cloud in the sky, no wind and I thought why the hell not. I was supposed to go to the Kelvin commitee meeting but could i [...]
