Sea Lamprey’s in the Kelvin (Sex Show)

I was given this lovely video of Sea Lamprey’s in the Kelvin last night by Charlie Dunn – he braved the “Heebie Jeebies” to follow them and film them having sex on his mobile phone.

More info on Sea Lampreys can be found here.

This has got to be a good sign for the […]

Total Respect!

I headed out with fishing buddy Alan Atkins for an evening session on Tuesday night – the conditions looked perfect: overcast, warm and flies on the water – sure the river was low however this exposed a lot of pocket water where I suspected the trout would be sitting. As it was it was strange […]

The dusk that never was…

I am all Topsy Turvy here – by this point I am usually fishing most evenings and have really got into the swing of things – instead I am having to pick and choose my fishing opportunities based on experience and knowledge – unfortunately the trout (and pike – see last post) have […]

Kelvinator Forum Meet and Greet (and fish obviously)

OK – I think it would be pretty neat if some of us could meet up for a wee evening session – we have got to come up with a place – this will obviously be based around numbers, for example if a few folk fancy it then we can meet up in […]

WTF – the skunk cabbage came back!

So I was planning on hitting the Clyde today however as my car had to return to the garage because of a bizarre squeaking sound (any of my readers mechanics?) I took my beloved wife’s motor and hit the Kelvin.

Things went from bad to worse – the temp seemed to […]

Grannom in the Kelvin?

I wish I had my wee sample bottle today – I am pretty sure I witnessed a hatch of Grannom in the Kelvin – I kid ye not!

In spring, the first sedge fly of real importance to river fishers is the grannom, and it causes great excitement both on chalk streams and on rain-fed […]

The Kelvin has been stocked

The Kelvin was stocked the other night – check it out

Anglers urged to put back salmon – Lord Kelvin senses trouble!

So anglers in Scotland are being urged to put back all spring salmon caught due to the runs collapsing – tragic – to be fair I think all Salmon in the Kelvin should be returned – the fact yer granny likes a bit of salmon is not good enough an excuse in my book to […]

River Kelvin Forum

So the wee River Kelvin Forum is going from strength to strength with around 170 members already – we have a nice little community gathering together talking about ….well all kinds of things really! We are discussing naming pools and areas on the river as well as making a hatch chart – we have enlisted […]

A few hours on the smelly kelly..

The day was overcast, warmish (around 12 degrees), a little windy, there was the odd olive on the water (big ones too), the water was giving off its usual smell – they don’t call it the Smelly Kelly for nothing – anyway, to cut a long story short I caught one trout on a nymph […]
