A letter in my inbox!

Well, it is nice that people are taking the time to use my little contact form. I had this little mail in my drawer (among others) when I arrived home from work today.

A Cracking Hour and a Half Fly Fishing!!

So I had a very short session today down at one of the tributaries. I had to wait in for a phone call about a job so did not have much time. It was cold, so cold that I could see my breath. After I had caught my first trout…. …..my hands were pretty cold […]

Poachers nabbed!!

So there was a crowd of poachers at the Junction pool of the Allander and the Kelvin. They were using nets seemingly to catch fish. A joint effort between two police forces nabbed them after a nearby resident raised the alarm when one of them attacked a young boy and beat him up.

Its […]

Aplogies to people who live places where the spiders actually try and kill you, unlike ours that sit about and make webs and eat flies but today I found three of these pretty impressive spiders in my house. Last night I caught one, in glass, took it out to my back garden and let it […]

Just one of those nights!!!

I realised almost instantly that I had made a wrong decision. Ordinarily it would not have mattered I would just give my better half a phone but this time it was different: I had lent her my mobile phone as she was going on a night out. I had arranged for my future mother in […]

Fantastic Small Stream Action! + some pretty good news!!

So I went along to one of the Kelvin tributaries for a little evening session, after that heavy rain it was up around a foot and a little dirty. There was fish rising so I knew it was worth a bash.. I was using my little Tea Stick rod which is absolutley perfect for this […]
