River Tummel!!

This River Tummel starts its life 60 miles to the west of Pitlochry on the windswept Rannoch Moor close to Glencoe. It begins as the River Ba and runs east passing through numerous lochs including Loch Ba, Loch Laidon, Loch Eigheach, Loch Rannoch, Dunalastair Water, Loch Tummel and finally Loch Faskally, until it reaches the […]

Small Stream fun!!

So after giving my new Bamboo rod the once over on the Kelvin I thought I would have a wee bit small stream action. There was not many flies moving on the water but it was overcast with just a little wind so the trout were feeling quite safe My first fish came to hand……..on […]

Boy was it HOT!

I think we were being a little optimistic to think that we could start fishing at 10am and then continue right through to 10pm in the evening. If the conditions had been ideal then it would have been tough, however it was boiling hot, the water was low (good), no wind(great) and the trout were […]

Up since around 5am!

So I woke at around 5am with the phone ringing. Had to put up a distressed relative a little worse for booze. Seeing as how I can not get back to sleep I tied some size 24 parachutes in preparation for my day away fishing. I hope that by 2pm I am not absolutely shattered. […]

Camping!!

So I and my lovely assistant/fiancé decided to get away for a night at the weekend. As it was lovely on Saturday we got in the car and belted up to a little Glen we know just before Glen coe. We pitched our tent, opened up the red wine, I had a cigar and then […]

A nice fish but a frustrating evening!

So I had a nice evening session down at a different river the other night and very fine it was too. It was also damned frustrating as I just couldn’t seem to keep a fish on……I was standing below around 3 fish who were all taking tiny flies…..if you look at this photo here…they were […]

Windy Day!

So for a little stress relief I went down to my little tributary for a couple of hours. It was at a good height but was a little cloudy. It was very windy so I was kind adaft using my 3wt but when I did manage to get a cast everything was fine. I did […]

Lovely fish!!

So as usuall on a Sunday I headed down to another river with a fishing buddy. The day was pretty miserable with showers on and off……generally rotton weather. Anyway, turned out to be one of the best days fishing in a loooooong time. We both had good fish but my friends fish was by far […]

A nice days fishing!

So I had a day down at the River Gryfe. Confidentiality forbids me from telling you exactly where. Anyway, myself and my fishing partner managed to talk a friend into actually going fishing. The friend feels that he has lost the spark for fishing or some shite like that……….he now plays tennis for goodness sake […]

Full of hope!!!

So woke up today full of hope. The sky was blue (it was forecast for rain) and there was no rain (it was forecast for rain). Got picked up by my fishing partner and we headed down to another river for a spot of early season dry fly action. We got there and usually it […]
