A lovely site about peoples memories of Maryhill.
So today was a nice day out with my wife, my niece, my fishing buddy Emmanuelle, his partner and his 6 month old baby.
Yesterday was roasting hot and last night was warm. It was so hot that I thought I was going to blank at one point. As it was I managed a nice plump trout from a tiny bit of pocket water. It was beautifully spotted, hundreds of them tightly packed along its body. Not the typical Kelvin trout I thought. I never got a picture as by the time I got my camera out I just felt it was that little bit too long, then it jerked and was in the water.
â€œI have NEVER seen anyone catch a fish out of the Kelvinâ€
â€œLook at that fanny, thinks he will catch a fishâ€¦..hey mate you are a fannyâ€
Made that trout all the sweeter!
Hot, very hotâ€¦.not the fishing but the temperature. Some trout rising, didnâ€™t have a clue what to. At this little spot there was around 4 trout going at it like crazy.
So I managed to wangle a lift to my other river under the guise of a romantic evening by the river. There is Claire over there to the right of that cow
A bit of a walk is an understatement actually.
I was elated to make it to the top…
You know, this just happens to be the longest running personal blog dedicated to fly fishing on the net. I remember when I started this I had a good hunt around and could not find any others. I mean, others spoke about fishing but also had a fair chunk of other stuff as well. Since I have started this blog I have had a fair few emails from people who have started up their own blogs because of the rubbish….. nonsense and occasionally the highly skilled advice that I give (generally that I have gained from other people).
So anyway, every now and then I check my links just to make sure people are still linking and to see if anyone new is linking to me and came up with this little blog. It is a guy in Wales called Gareth Lewis who takes some nice pictures and sometimes even falls in his river. A guy I would like to fish with!

The Synopsis is pretty poor, good fishing book with great stories, some of his books are kinda hit or miss first time around….this one is a hit!
