Kelvin account…

When I took some bags out to the wheelie bin this morning it was warm, at least the sun was shining and I did not skuttle back in to the house. Instead I stood and felt the sun on my face and wanted to catch a trout. It has been a long busy winter (hence […]

Kelvin comes up trumps….

I was walking to the river when I realised that I had forgotten my new net. Luckily I dd not need it anyway however the Kelvin has been throwing up enough surprises to make me think about it as I walked down.

I have not fished for trout at all this year and I was […]

Before the rain…

Fishing has been slow of late for a few reasons. One is that I have not had the chance to have my usual couple of hour sessions on the Kelvin due to living just too far out of reach to make it feasible. This will be less of an issue come July when the kids […]

New fins arrived!

After what happened to Alex’s fins last week I decided to upgrade mine to a pair of diving fins – thankfully Hollis took pity on me and sent me a pair of these bad boys out to review.


I am looking forward to trying these bad boys out. To go with them I […]

Kelvin AGM this evening!

I used to think that Kelvin AGM’s were just a waste of time, now I actually look forward to them.

Got my permit early!

I have now moved house and am settling in nicely, if anyone is wanting to give a house warming present some wood for the stove would be welcome 🙂

See […]

Otterly Good!

Went fishing on the Kelvin after work for an hour. River at a great height and the color of strong tea without the milk. Caught nothing however lots of trout rising….

Trout rising….

The undergrowth is now at its wildest and it is strange to think that the end of the season is on […]

So I happened upon a man masturbating in the park the other evening..

Lord Kelvin making a note of how many times he has seen me this season!

Good evenings fishing interrupted by chap with his jeans and pants at his ankles in the bushes, he coughed and tried to pull them up.

I looked him straight in the eye and said “Awright Mate”

He carried on and I fished the pool in front of him.

It was all a bit awkward!

I […]

Been fishing…

Caught some fish too!

It is a piece of a bridge!

Heading out to the Clyde in an hour or so, will update later!

See ya!

I did not have any of these in my box..

Horrendous wading…

The nights are fair drawing in chaps….

I encountered my first problem almost as soon as I got to the river – my camera was totally dead. The boy had been playing around with it earlier and I think that he must have left it on letting the batteries run dry, no matter I had my wee Kodak PlaySport Zx5that also takes […]
