I went for a wander along to the Vet School on Sunday. It was pretty grim, I hope it starts to heat up a little bit, I suppose a month can make all the difference though in fly fishing. I might add that if Bird Flu hits the UK then this stretch will be off [...]
I was trying to work out why I have had such a massive jump in visitors to the main Kelvin website and to here over the weekend. Usually visitor numbers dip sat/sun as people are not at work browsing the net catching up on the fishing gossip. I then noticed that the infamous â€œTrout n [...]
