Vice Chairman Perks!

I was thinking the other day about all the perks of being the Vice Chair of the River Kelvin Angling Association – I mean it is a big club with nearly 1000 members, we have a healthy bank balance, we have good trout fishing and great runs of Salmon. You would think there [...]

Ramblings…

Interestingly there has not been the usual crowd of guys fishing the Kelvin this year for Salmon and the word on the street is the fishing for Salmon on the Kelvin has been = “total shite this year” (according to the chap in Dumbarton who owns the food shop and served me my roll n’ [...]

You would be forgiven…

Having a go for salmon!

I had forgotten…

Sometimes you forget something good that is right under your nose – For a few years I fished the same stretch of the Kelvin and got to know every nook and cranny there was to know – it was maybe a mile or so of water. That is in fact a lot of pools, riffles, [...]

Sunday evening – heading to some old spots on the Kelvin…

I decided to visit some of my older haunts on the river for a nostalgic trip down memory lane

Maybe see you there!

It was on my doorstep all along!

So I have been tying up some flees in preparation for some hot evening action. Reluctantly I took the advice (you can substitute advice for pretty much constant ribbing) from pals regarding the size of my flies. You see in the past I fished a place where a big bushy fly was a essential as [...]

Combined Trip Report

A very hit or miss couple of weeks on the Kelvin for me – I have not been able to fish anywhere else due to work and time commitments. You have got to be on the river at the right time and be in the right place as soon as a hatch starts. [...]
