Regarding the new fly only rule on a Sunday – today was bliss – sure at the stretch we were fishing you do not usually meet anyone anyway – however once the Salmon start coming into the river I think the rule will start coming into its own – once more guys start fishing for [...]
The Kelvin has been seeing huge Grannom hatches however as consistent with most rivers the trout do not even give them a second glance – I spent a few hours on the Kelvin a couple of days ago late afternoon to find very few trout even willing to take the nymph – which made me [...]
I got that Friday feeling – thankfully this week it was actually yesterday – today I had a day off – physiotherapy has instructed me to make sure my ankle does not seize up so I scheduled in a walk along the Kelvin valley – the boy accompanied me!

Having a baby has [...]
It is that time of year again – it is like a scene from Mad Max with people checking in their weapons before entering the Thunderdome – That’s right it is the River Kelvin Angling Association AGM 2010.
It will be held on the 11th February at 7pm at Kessington Hall, 58 Milngavie Road Bearsden. [...]
