Congratulations – you made it!

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 [...]

Kids and the Kelvin kicks off!

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 [...]

Did you know SEPA have a new river level data site?

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.

For us on the Kelvin there are now three monitoring stations – the lowest [...]

Kelvin Salmon Season Opening Ceremony

So Saturday was the opening ceremony for the River Kelvin – the actual opening day of the Salmon season was Friday however it was a kind of last minute decision to hold any kind of shindig. Anyway, a quick post was made on the Fishkelvin site and some members agreed to pop along at the [...]

Opening Day on the Kelvin

In true Kelvin style we will be having our opening day on Saturday 12th feb.

Kelvinator Alasdair P posted a nice wee video in my Kelvin Forum of several of the runs and pools at the lower end of the river – pretty much from the Clyde and then up a few miles.

He has very handily named all the pools and areas – If you do not fish the [...]

Kelvin AGM 2011 – Outcomes!

So the Kelvin AGM was a lot of fun – if someone had told me a couple of years ago that we would have a strictly no kill policy for trout I would have thought they were havering but there you go. Someone who shall remain nameless who allegedly caught a 3lb brown trout and [...]

50 days to go..

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 [...]

RKAA Sucks!

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 [...]
