Humph, no fishing the last couple of days, the weather has been bad. I was going to go today but I had the feeling that the river would be too high. Anyway, I took delivery of some rather nice dry flies today from a company called Flying Hooks whom I cant recommend highly enough. I’ve [...]
You know, I wonder sometimes whether people i meet are actually fishing the same River as i do. I ran into a bloke today , he asked me how many fish i had caught. I said i had caught a few and the biggest was just shy of half a pound …….he said nothing of [...]
I want a new bag as University has stated back in full swing. Its a pain to transfer all my stuff from my trusty old rucksack …..My fishing gear and then my uni stuff. Plus my uni stuff now smells of fish.Instead what I want is one of these rather snazzy William Joseph bags…….They are [...]
SUCCESS AT LAST
I was starting to get a little paranoid for a while there, perhaps the curse of the blog or something as I was not catching any fish. WELL today certainly made up for all that …..I caught over ten lovely trout all on a dry fly. To be honest I don’t fish [...]

I SPIN FOR TROUTNah not really but i did catch a trout the other day whilst spinning. Technically we were spinning for Pike. I had been talking about going for a walk with a pal for a while now from Milngavie and walking right down beside the allander to where it joins the kelvin and [...]
Thought I would include a couple of nice pictures of some nice trees that can be found between the vet school stretch and the fallen tree stretch….Possibly not the best picture in the world. but if you look closely you can see the patterns in which it grows is lovely.
I LIKE trees!!!!! OKI [...]
Ah yes, The Kelvin Trout wouldnt bve the same if they didnt act like the stubborn little buggers that they are. I would like to say that when i went down to the river today for the first time in a week i at least caught a couple. BUT i caught absolutley bugger all, ah [...]
