I am trying to blank the whole end of seson situation, as such I have not updated in a while. On Monday I shall be giving Grayling a bash so will see yo then ….

Tracking Blogs

When I started this blog about my exploits down the Kelvin and the other rivers that I fish this was the only dedicated fly fishing blog on the net. Sure there were updated regularly news sites but no actual personal fishing experience blogs. Now there are lots of fly fishing blogs out there, kinda makes […]

End of season thoughts 1

As usual at this time of year I am on the lookout for some good books to read over the winter- that whet my appetite for the coming year.

I was discussing the end of the season with Mike on our last trout session together; we both agreed that we did in fact enjoy the […]

Baws tae that…

So Alex and I had some serious small stream action at the weekend, coupled of course with a hefty dose of big river action. The small burn is part of the Kelvin system and had a nice amount of water in it due to there being a spot of rain a couple of days before. […]

Yay, rain!!

So myself and a few friends have been hitting the Kelvin and our other favourite river quite a bit the last week. They have all been short notice trips which is a change from our usual begging lifts or getting the bus places. I went further upstream on the Kelvin a couple of weeks ago […]

Don’t give me any of that Zen crap

So with my new found freedom of car travel I have had a busy couple of days. Last night I went upstream on the Kelvin to a spot that Mike fishes regularly- and consistently pulls nice trout out of. I however totally blanked, probably because the water was too low and I did not have […]

A rather nice update…

A rather nice update from Rob Wilson, a frequent Kelvin fisher

I headed out early this morning, and wandered down from my house as far as the art galleries. The river was pretty coloured, and no real sign of any fish. On the way back, despite the rain coming back on, the water was clearing […]
