Yay – you made it to another season – today is the first day of the 2011 trout season.
Congratulations on making it this far – we all deserve a great big round of applause for fighting through yet another thoroughly miserable winter.
From this moment on instead of being totally unable [...]
Cleaning out our rivers and trying to make sure the fish are a happy bunch is quite a selfish act for anglers. We have a vested interest in making sure the river is clean and healthy because we want there to be more fish for us to catch. We also do not like [...]
Most anglers in Scotland have used Sepa’s pretty good river level site in the past and I reckon more folk will be using it even more in the future.
There is a full update of the changes to the site here.

That’s it lads – it is now (Monday) 50 days until the start of the trout season. The temps appear to be sitting above freezing now and there is a sun in the sky. In fact today we are getting 8 hours, 6 mins and 28 seconds of daylight.
Conditions are possibly balmy (or [...]
Slagging off the people that are in control of your fishing appears to be in vogue these days (plus I need to try and get together my hosting fees) – so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon in my own, dare I say, capitalistic, style – yes that is correct you can now [...]
