Tying Flees!

Ok – so winter was a washout when it came to tying up flies – if I had my head screwed on I would have tied up some at the end of last season however due to Pike Madness pretty much everything went by the wayside.

I thought people who moaned about having no [...]

Lessons learned with cold hands…

When I arrived at the “other” river the conditions seemed just right – as I was getting my permit I ran into Neil “Trout Machine” Sinclair of Double Decker fame (double deer hair wings allow the fly to be used in the heavy water where big fish like to sit) -”if he is here” I [...]

I’m not calling to gloat..

“I’m not calling to gloat” I said to Campbell – “I am just phoning to share the ……joy of catching the first trout of the season”

You see, Campbell is a kindred spirit – we both thought if we had our child (like it was planned) in January that would give us a few [...]

Spring?

What is it that tells you guys that Spring is finally here?

For me it is when I finally see those first flowers of yellow as I travel up the Great Western Road.

I watch them snake all the way along the central reservation – sadly they are only ever there for a few [...]

Distant Meetings, Secret Streams

I have spent a lot of time looking at maps for new rivers to fish or even new spots on old rivers. I am ware that this season I will have a lot of added responsibilities which will drastically reduce my time on the water so waters reasonably close at hand have had to be [...]

We found more than we thought!

Sleep Deprivation for Salmon and Sea Trout

My pal has been asking me when I am going to write up the trip report for our mammoth Salmon and Sea Trout session.

Mid July we went to a river up North – a nice private beat which usually fishes very well. It was craziness – we stayed awake for a ridiculous amount of [...]

Testing a new layout…

I know this is a little boring, especially if you guys are reading this via email however I am testing out my new theme – I would like some comments.

I have also been thinking about adding a very simple forum. I was actually loathe to do this as I dont think it will get [...]

Saturday Fun – on a tributary of a tributaries tributary

For those of you that do not know the rivers that I fish let me explain something to you – The Kelvin has three tributaries that make it the river it is – the Luggie, the Glazart and the Allander. The Kelvin itself is merely a tributary of the mighty River Clyde although where it [...]
