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. […]
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 […]
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.
