Coming to an end..

So the end of the season is almost upon us, I fished the middle Clyde on Saturday for a few hours – there was plenty of flies on the water but the trout appeared to have other things on their minds.

I caught one trout on the nymph, a lovely trout that was very dark in color – did plenty of acrobatics before finally coming to the net.

I am now gearing up for the Pike – I was down at the forth and clyde for a few hours today with plugs – caught nowt but I hear the last month has been slow – I met a long time canal fisher (and blog reader) Vinny who has had some rather nice Pike this year. He also told me some disturbing information about Polish immigrants who are killing lots of Pike – one was even seen dropping a bag of cement off a bridge to take the oxygen out the water. Good grief !!

    Nice trout dude, well done.
    That’s really sad to hear about the canal. I’ve heard of this happening in Englandshire but never witnessed it.
    If I do, I shall pour cement down his bloody neck and see how he likes it! Of course this kind of behaviour isn’t just restricted to our Eastern European friends, a trip down to Blantyre weir would confirm that!

  • It is just one of these things Alex – I have never actually seen them myself, I would like to just to have it confirmed though !
