I stopped off at the bridge on Gibson Street yesterday , as the guy that I had spoke to the other night had said that there was a few good fish sitting underneath it. I can imagine there is. It is a lovely looking piece of water , deep with an amazing glide. Pretty inaccessible [...]
I loathe going into angling shops.
Whenever I can I buy my stuff online although today I went into the “Glasgow angling centre”.
It was horrible, like a fishing stuff tesco. The people behind the counter are not very friendly and when I tried to start a conversation the guy just looked at me. [...]
