River Kelvin Wishlist – take two

Ok – so the last time I posted the wish list everyone went bonkers – I thought about what everyone said and so have now ammended my list.

Now, maybe I am being mean posting about Salmon fishing on the Kelvin seeing as how I do not do it, however considering the increasing runs of [...]

(Help Needed) Do you want to know if Kelvin Trout are safe to eat?

I have recieved an email from Craig Robinson Environmental Impacts Group – Fisheries Research Services

I am writing having seen your River Kelvin website, and I have a request to make, but first I will give some background to it.

I Stand in Defiance of the East Wind Curse

Well that was a turn up for the books. I decided to spend a few hours down at the Kelvin before I jet off on my holidays tomorrow. I was expecting things to be hard going however the fishing was pretty good – even better than the last time I was down. It was busy [...]
