The Luggie, the Kelvin and a lost phone!

So I have in fact had an eventful week or so which did in fact involve some fishing.

A bridge over the Luggie..

I met Jim Burns down at a wee bridge over the Luggie as it is now on the Kelvin permit. I have been getting messages from @JBrownisky on Twitter who has […]

Saying “Tight Lines”

Going by what people have been searching for on my fancy blog stats some people are trying to work out why anglers says “Tight Lines” to each other. Here from my archives is what I have got to say on the matter:

I loathe the saying “tight lines”, I can remember when people started using […]

Winter, I would like it if you would just..

Kelvinators – my faith has been restored!

OK, sure we had a few moments that were a bit dodgy. The tone was set when a chap walked in to the room and started giving Paul abuse as he could not find the venue (like that is our fault) however he gave a quick apology when he was chinned about his […]

Haunted by foxes!

I encountered it in a Bed and Breakfast in Pitlochry – the look of pure absolute evil. Its eyes were attached to a head that had been wrenched off its shoulders and then had a hapless duck stuck between its jaws.

Stare of Death

I have never been freaked out by a stuffed animal […]

Developer Hugh Reid about to f*ck with the Kelvin – not on our watch!

Developer Hugh Scott has applied for the Kelvin River Wildlife/Green corridor to be repealed.

This is quite possibly the start of a process which could eventually lead to buildings all along the banks of the Kelvin which will destroy all access to the river and cause irreparable damage to the already recovering habitat.

Under his […]

2012 Trout Season – you were like a batshit crazy girlfriend!

That is correct, you were like a crazy girlfriend. On one hand you promised so much (the sex was good) however on the other you turned up at crazy times at my house and made unreasonable demands.

You were like two separate people, the problem was the crazy part far outweighed the good part.

The […]

This is how a burn dies…

Aye, you know it is Autumn when you get to a burn and some shopping trolleys are emerging on the banks.

I arrived at the burn and quickly set up my wee Tenkara outfit. The burn was at a good height and I fished a few pools without any success. This was weird however I […]

Shock Expose:Hardy used subliminal sex messages in its adverts!

(I wrote this post back in February 2011 – I have no idea whether they still use sex to sell fly fishing gear #grin#)

Oh Hardy – you used to be all butlers and stupidly expensive reels – where did it all go horribly wrong?

So I got home […]

Hardy/Greys Customer Service..

I am going to start out and say I should not really have expected anything more.

I have always had a bit of a weird relationship with Hardy and their customer service. I suppose I should be glad they do not treat an opinionated asshole with a blog any differently than any other punter.

After […]
