Salty Sins!

“So what you are telling me is that you have been catching huge numbers of stocked trout during what might be the best week of wild trout fishing we have had all year”? said Alex, after I had told him about a wee local club that I have joined that stock a couple of reservoirs […]

Sea Loch

It has been a cold weekend since Friday and this morning I managed to sneak away from the house for a few hours after Sea Trout. I noted the state of tide was right for a local spot where I knew Sea Trout had been caught before and decided that I may as well go […]

Some LRF action at least!

I am getting sick of Facebook – every time I go on it all I read about is Kelvinators hauling in huge trout from the Kelvin on the River Kelvin Fishers page.

I am currently in a Holiday Cottage that is probably as far down the Clyde as on can possibly go without actually being […]

No fish all year!

Last night I realised that I had not actually caught a fish all year.

You read that correct = all f*cking year!

We are a day away from June and I was damn near on my longest blank of the last 25 years. This is due to the fact that due to a rather nasty […]

Highland Blanks

Headed past the fault line being chased by the weather. First option was washed out and in a field so continued on.

Finally settled with the beach casters – we tried to buy some extra bait in a supermarket but never found any!

Wind in the valley!

We thought about tubing a loch on […]

Weirdly, the last trout I caught…

On the barbarian rod as well!

 

Tap tap tap…

Up and out early doors to meet Alex and drive to a Sea Loch for mostly two objectives – I wanted to catch a Wrasse and Alex wanted to catch a Thorn Back Ray. I also wanted to catch a thorn back and Alex also wanted to catch a wrasse but you get the idea. […]

Quick!

I managed a quick session down at the breakwater – I met a chap (Glen) who fishes with the legendary Frenchman Nicholas from the Glasgow Angling Centre and we exchanged some info.

A chap walked past me and headed to the furthest away point after Mackerel while I hung about at the rocks.

What is this?

I was fishing using a wee jig off a breakwater when I again caught a fish – this one was even bigger than the other one. I had cast out and twitched it back , the fish had slammed into it and put a fair old bend in my rod.

I sent the picture to […]

Season Blunders

Middle of the summer I went up to Ullapool for a few nights camping. The car was stuffed full of camping stuff and their was barely any room for my youngest. I had a split decision to make about what fishing gear to take and decided on my beachcaster. Of course now I realise if […]
