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 fire in my house in which part of it was totally torched I am currently moving between various holiday cottages in Argyl and Bute. Thankfully nobody was hurt and that is the main thing that counts.

So last night after some blazing sunshine I bolted to a Sea loch to try my luck and was greeted by this wee fella.


Obviously it is nothing compared to what is going on in the Kelvin just now – head over to the most excellent River Kelvin Fishers page to see some of that action by guys who are not living out of suitcases.

Still, it was nice seeing this view until the midgies tried to kill me!


Today I took some clients who are trying to form a fishing group down to the canal for some coarse action and caught some nice Perch – no pictures though!

I have big plans on a loch I have found – watch this space!


I really enjoy reading your comments - say something!

    Did not know you had had a fire. Hope Claire and the kids are all right. Must have been scary.

    I looked into the eyes of Death itself Jim.

    I told him to fuck off and then phoned 999.
