Kids and the Kelvin kicks off!

Urban Fly Fisher Kicks Ass!

Christmas is coming…an idea to slash the possibility of dodgy fishing presents!

It is December and we are now well on the way to Christmas! This leaves us as anglers a problem – well meaning relatives that attempt to buy us something to do with our hobby however actually buy us something pretty crap.

People that know me know I loathe a spendthrift – which is pretty [...]
