Dead Salmon on the Kelvin- an explanation?

So it appears that the dead salmon on the Kelvin was not just the result of the heat. There has been two fish deaths, the heat and a disease. At the moment there are large amounts of dead Salmon in the Clyde and no one really knows what to do about them. The thinking is [...]

An Eight Legged FREAK!!

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 [...]

Back in Action!!

So I went along to the Kelvin for a few hours today, its funny I don’t think I ever know how lucky I am having good trout fishing within a fifteen minute walk from my front door. Anyway, I walked up to Dawsholm Park which I see now has a “Friends of Dawsholm Park” sign [...]

Just one of those nights!!!

So after praying for rain for weeks it finally came, just as I and Alex arrived at the Kelvin. It was pissing it down and to make things even worse I had forgotton my lucky hat! We were doomed from the beginning. Alex even fell in but by this point it did not really make [...]

I have won a competition….

So I managed to wangle an evening session yesterday on the Kelvin. I and another Kelvin fisher decided to head up the Kelvin valley closer to the West End. The trout were spooky and Alex had a new 4 weight that he wanted to christen. It was a nice evening and I managed to get [...]

Communication Difficulties!

I want to discuss with you communication difficulties. Now the other day I got SHE WHO MUSY BE OBEYED to give me a lift up to the Glasgow Angling Centre to get some of that sealant stuff for my waders. On the way I mentioned that it would mean that I would be fishing on [...]
