RKAA – EGM Update

Just a quick update as I know there will be some people unable to attend the EGM.

As EGM’s go it was pretty boring – no gunfights, no “dance off” between rival factions and only one heckler – and even he is a long gunmen who really should be given his own place on the […]

Kelvin Angling Association EGM

So it is only a couple of days until the crazy kids that make up the river Kelvin angling fraternity meet up once more to discuss the parentage of the committee! I wonder what will happen this year – shock accusations, heartening confessions, threats of handbags at dawn – I think we have had them […]

Saturday Salmon..

Long story short I caught feck all and had my picture taken holding a spinning rod – is this what I have been reduced to?

Paul Reid – not floundering – honest!

I jest – I jest – it was a nice being on the river when ordinarily I would be waiting some […]

Caught my first Kelvin Sea Beast last night..

It was bound to happen – was it confidence? perseverance? sheer dogged determination? Nope – the fact that I had left my camera in the house meant I was bound to catch a fish!

I was still able to take a few snaps using my phone camera so dont expect to get off lightly.

The […]

Currently on the kelvin …

Fishing for salmon … just had a touch … here is hoping !

Busy, busy and more busy..

I have been enjoying looking with wonder at the small things in nature through my sons eyes – we have spotted lots of young frogs over the last week and we always stop to examine them before carefully sending them on their way..

On the kelvin …

On the kelvin just now .. it is a lovely height but is a little brown .. anyone joining me?

Throwing metal in a ditch..

If there is an opposite from my last post this is it – the contrasts between catching lovely wee trout on a burn and attempting to catch an Atlantic Salmon on the Kelvin are two extremes.

What is that in the box? FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MY EYES!!!!!

Our intention (last night) […]

Fisherman’s Stories (morphing misinformation into factoids)

This is a post about how stories can grow arm and legs and eventually morph out of all known facts into a completely different scenario. It is akin to someone telling another angler they caught a trout on a dry fly and then eventually the story ending up as being they were attacked by a […]

We have changed conditions!

I have fished twice over the last week – one was on Saturday evening (before all the rain) and the other was on Tuesday evening just as the rain started.

Both sessions were what I can only describe as “pish” – I am glad that you guys do not just come […]
