You gotta have a thick skin to run an Urban Fishing Club!

What seems like an age ago now when the RKAA was run by some old codgers dedicated individuals with some time on their hands I made a suggestion that we could put up some signs to combat poaching – they huffed and puffed and stated that they would simply get pulled down. One of the [...]

A View from the Chair.. (The Ultimate Urban Fisher Accessory)

Oh the Kelvin fishers, I just love them.

You can even see a "Daily record" tucked into it..

What makes this whole scene a lot more comedic is when you realise the bench is in fact in the middle of a weir…

At least it is a nice view..

It takes the [...]

Tenuous fishing photos 52/52 – a walk in the park (last post of 2010)

When I was young we found a hill…

Anyway – since it was erected our garden has been not even had a pigeon sniff at it – no [...]

Tenuous fishing photos 44/52

This picture was actually sent to me by a chap called Tommy – he photographed these weird long white worm like things sprouting from the river – like him I have absolutely no idea what they are – they were nowhere near any pipes etc.

Anyway – after a brief email [...]

The last day of the season is upon us – not the proper trout one – the funky salmon one! Today was kinda planned out a week or so ago – a few pals and I were supposed to go fishing and then retire to a house for some bevy ! As the date got [...]
