I was trying to work out why I have had such a massive jump in visitors to the main Kelvin website and to here over the weekend. Usually visitor numbers dip sat/sun as people are not at work browsing the net catching up on the fishing gossip.
I then noticed that the infamous â€œTrout n Aboutâ€ was on Discovery Channel on Friday nightâ€¦..aha! It was actually an email I received from an old fishing buddyâ€™s father that made me go and have a hunt and see where it was on. For anyone that does not know, I took part in that programme last year, here is a post about it. Someone just told me it should have been called “aboot n aboot” as you never actually see a Trout 🙂
Anyway, Claire and I decided to go for a walk along the Kelvin to the West End for a bit of romantic exercise. The river was looking pretty grim if the truth be told, still it was a nice day and I scoped out another few “getting into the river” places that I will keep in mind for when the season starts.
Speaking of which, I took receipt of some new tapered leaders, a tub of something that looks suspiciously like cocaine that will keep your fly floating all day and a little tub of weighted putty. I got the weighted putty as this year I am determined to try some deep down tactics, especially at the start of the season anyway!
