Competition time !

So today is the start of the Urban Fly fishing on the Kelvin caption competition! The competition is open to anyone, in any country whether I know them or not. It is a simple little caption contest, nothing too difficult I am sure.
It is however a caption contest with a twist. YOU choose the picture, there is only one rule, it must have been taken by me and not a picture from another blog, so for example the picture on this post would be great; however upon reading the post you find that it is in fact a picture from another website. Have a hunt through the archives on the right to find something you like ! Oh, and you CAN merge pictures together !

You can jazz it up as much as you like, you can even use the very nice Flikr tools from here and here.

Yes yes, all very simple. I suppose I had better talk about prizes. Well, two lucky winners will get a rather snazzy Buff. And what is a Buff I hear you say, well seeing as how the hot weather is coming in I am giving away 2 rather nifty Visor Buffs to keep the sun out of your eyes whilst reeling in those giant trout. If you don’t know what they are I suggest you nip over to the Buff website and check them out.

Visor Buff is the latest innovation. Its made out of the original Buff tubular garment combined with a neoprene visor (peak) to bring together all the features of a traditional cap. The result is a very light, high-quality, comfortable, and useful piece of garment that can be worn in many versatile styles (open visor, cap, sahariane, pirate, foulard and many more).

Anyway, I suppose that all seems rather straightforward, the competition will be open for one month , so lets say the closing date for entries is on the 15th July.

Claire will be the judge; so keep that in mind I suppose :) Send all entries to

Oh and you can use all parts of the website, not just the blog ;)

    Stewpot, ignore Lorraine Waddell – she’s a muppet and my friend unfortunately! McGamble is a made up joke name for anything and everything! Mental Sheppy

  • [...] So it had been a roasting hot day. My wife and I had a hectic day rushing about; it got to around 8pm so I decided to go fishing. Alas as soon as I went out the door I could tell there was something a little different in the air, it was a lot colder. Still, I was hoping that the trout might have been turned on to the sedges the same way they were turned on the night before but a proper hatch did not materialise. I ended up spending a fair old time at this little spot trying to tempt some rising fish, I found that I was deceived as they were mostly those wee sea trout that have been stocked. Eventually I managed to hook what feels like my first brown trout in ages from this part of the Kelvin. I thought at first it was a lot bigger however before realising it was foul hooked in the back, it made for an interesting fight and thankfully the hook came out easier. Mike, a guy I fish with uses barbless hooks all the time; however I just seem to use them when I remember to flatten the barb. Would be interested to know just how many of you use them. Oh and don’t forget the caption competition, mind that anyone can enter, just choose a photo and write a caption, jiggery pockery with Photoshop is allowed but not mandatory. Read this post here for more details. [...]

  • What a great site. I am just reading through back posts. But thanks for the blog. I have had the chance to live and fish in Scotland a few times…some of my best memories on the water. Of course I can’t complain about living in Jackson Hole either.

    keep it going!
