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 […]
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 […]
So today, I got my gear together for a bit of a walk upstream to where the Kelvin is deep and slow. As I was getting my stuff together I was standing at the bridge in the Vet School under the main road….I heard a voice shout out YOUR SHITE AT FISHIN I looked around, […]
A man was stopped by a warden down on the Kelvin recently with two buckets of live trout . The warden asked the man, “Do you have a license to catch those fish?” The man replied to the warden, “No, sir. These are my pet fish.” “Pet fish?” the warden replied. “Yes, sir. Every night […]

So I had a wee few hours down on the Kelvin today, uttrely blanked! Ran into one of the regulars..
