We have changed conditions!

I have fished twice over the last week – one was on Saturday evening (before all the rain) and the other was on Tuesday evening just as the rain started. Both sessions were what I can only describe as “pish” – I am glad that…

Friends of the River Kelvin gala day + misc report!

Ok- so I have missed out a few sessions on the kelvin however you have really not missed much. On my last post I was sitting by the river waiting for dusk and monster trout to rise – it did not happen – to add…

Slow Start – First Trout!

It has been a slow start to the season – I was full of enthusiasm on Sunday when I hit the Kelvin as I fully expected to see a major March Brown hatch (possibly) however I learned later that all the fly action had pretty much ceased…
