Rain

Plan=fishing Result=rain

Off next two days, I am planning to do a whack of fly tying. I have found a couple of nice patterns on the net for olives so will be tying em up. I will post photos. Probably!

Purists- thats what we are!

So BBC weather said it was going to be sleeting today, ha that is a laugh: considering as how my first trip of the season was cancelled because of this. At around 1430 today it was actually quite warm with a little sun on the water. I could certainly imagine large dark olives hatching in […]

Bob Wyatt- Trout Hunting

I am going to be good to Bob Wyatt and plug his book. I am sure I did so in the past but as these plugs go around in full circle as new readers get picked up I felt it was worth it again. For my American readers this is one of those books you […]

S1gn my guestb00k !

A Walk in the Snow!

Will I be fishing on opening day? Well considering Claire and I went for a walk along the banks of the Kelvin and we took a Sled I can with good confidence say no. Most enjoyable though, never seen the Kelvin in snow before! And here is where I will most probably cast my first […]

In Memorial

Ah yes, a happy Monday morning to you all!

I was looking through my photographs when I came across this. It says:

In memory of Julie Nybo & “Titch” who loved the estate. March 2003

I often take photos of random objects thinking that I will post and blog about them and then forget, […]

Matching the Hatch

So this year I am determined to actually identify the flies on the water. Last year at the start of the season the trout were going crazy for the large dark olives, so I have been tying up many patterns. I suppose fly identification and fly fishing go hand in hand! Therefore I have been […]
