Ok – so Sunday I had a plan – the plan was to do some family stuff in the morning and then head down to the town stretch of the River Kelvin in the afternoon – the key of course was to sell this to my wife as some play time for her and the boy – she could then see me through the trees fishing – q=lots of waving at young son.
It got to 12…we still had not left….it got to 1pm…we still had not left…suddenly the fear took me – I could sense that the ingredients to a good session had all come together – unfortunately I was still in the house.
I rushed us out the house and into the car…
Eventually I was fishing by around 2.30pm and instantly seen some rising trout – in total I caught two to the dry fly (I fluffed a few more risers) and then the river slowed down to a halt. I was far too late for the action..
I met up with Paul Reid – he managed to tempt a nice wee trout to the dry in some fast water …
…and he uses a Hardy as well!
It was a day for meeting people – we met the head bailiff and a pal out patrolling the river and also Stephen from the Kelvin forum out for a walk with his other half. We also seen Derek Graham through the bushes however he did not seem to be in the mood to talk..
All in all it was a pretty nice wee session however by around 4pm it was all over – the trout had all switched off for the evening.
Of course it has all changed now – the temp is high and we have a high pressure weather system sitting over us – today seemed ideal – good temp until the evening with some cloud cover – I heard that trout were rising like crazy last night at around dinner time – looking forward to hearing how you guys got on?
