Blanked!!

It is funny how some days can go so well and other so bad. After my success yesterday I decided to head down to the Kelvin for some “keli” action. There was none. The water was at a good height but was a very dark chocolate colour. There was also a crowd of guys sitting [...]

Small Stream Fun!

So yesterday I went fishing on one of the tributories of the Kelvin. It was great dry fly water with long pools with little riffles, lots of fly life with trout rising. I lost count of the fish that I caught and returned. It is not too popular with people bait fishing iether as it [...]

6ft 3wt

So I have a little 6 foot 3 wt rod I had kinda forgotton about. I bought a 3wt line the other day and strung it up today. Did not put nearly enough backing on it but somehow that seems ok as I doubt I will be catching fish on it that will be taking [...]

Brown Trout Habitat

Was browsing a forum when I came across a post about this report . It is all about trout conservation and really emphasises habitat over stocking.

Bright n Sunny!!

So I went down the Kelvin the other day with someone I have been mailing for a while. It was one of those days that it just goes to show you can actually go fishing for a good few hours in bright sunshine and pretty grim conditions while catching no fish and still have a [...]

I love it when a plan comes together!!

So I have spent the last two days moving into my new home. They say that moving is one of the most sressfull things that someone can do but I found it all fairly painless. The only cock up was my cable company not switching on my phnone line. I have spent the last hour [...]

Lovely, just lovely!!

So I went hillwalking at the weekend. Set out early and walked up Ben Lomond. Ben Lomond is the most southerly Munro and, at 3195ft towers over Loch Lomond We and it seemed like lots of people were all kitted out in walking gear and jumpers etc. All of us battling against the elements……it took [...]

Most enjoyable…..kinda

Lovely afternoon down at the Kelvin today. The day was warm with plenty of flies on the water…the only problem being that there was not a lot of fish moving. Still managed to winkle out a couple of brownies and what looked like a little sea trout……..well it was silvery anyway. Met two absolutley sound [...]
