Fish Kill on the Kelvin!

So I took a wee stoat up to the Vet School today as it looks like the last day fishing for a bit as the rain is about to come. I met a guy from SEPA who asked me if I had seen any dead fish. It just so happened that I had seen two […]

Blankedo!!

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

who fishes bait and he was blanking as well. Like most guys who have moved from course fishing to trout he easily transfers those skills. He trots the bait down making sure that he is […]

Ah yes, its all coming back now!!

So after spending around 5 hours working on an essay I decided to head down to the Kelvin for a few hours stress relief. First things first I ran into some people from the East End Angling Club who were down for a few casts. Unfortunetly I was not fast enough with my camera to […]

Yeargh, frustrating evening

So I went for a wander along to the Kelvin last night as the rain came to nothing. It was a bit windy but the river was at a good height and there were flies on the water. I knew things was going to be slow as soon as I didn’t catch anything in my […]

Damn the Luck!

So the rain has made the Kelvin and its tributaries become coloured. I now have 2 folk to check the condition of the river for me. One of them lives right next to the Kelvin and is clued up enough be able to tell me whether it is high or low or coloured or whatever…….great. […]

First fish on bamboo!!

So I have a bamboo rod that I have been keeping quiet about. At some point over the next couple of weeks I will go into the details but at the moment all I am saying is that I have a 7 foot 4 weight bamboo rod from a company in the states called Tea […]

Sunstroke

So it seems I have a mild touch of sunstroke or heatstroke…….something like that anyway! I got all dizzy going down to the local supermarket and generally feel quite bad.

I shall hit the Kelvin tommorow!

I am now a statistic!

Rainbows in the Kelvin??

So I have been getting a few emails about rainbows being caught in the Kelvin. So far as I can make out it was just an isolated occurrence. It probably got in from Carbeth Fishery, I mean it certainly wasn’t stocked intentionally or anything. The good thing is that I reckon Carbeth would not want […]

A post and picture just for the sake of it!

Been a bit slow as of late due to the amount of Uni work I have been doing. I have a days fishing planned for the Tummel on Sunday and then a couple of evening sessions next week. I will of course be having a couple of sessions down on the Kelvin.
