I think I fixed all the links……have added small stream photos to gallery, better layout.
Right, I have spent the last couple of hours setting up my new photo gallery. It can be found HERE
There is not much exitement going on though so dont get disapointed…..over the next couple of days i will add in more photos. I decided I didnt like coppermine (for all you geeks out there) as gallery is much nicer and i like the hidden folders option. I allso like the way that there is a plugin for wordpress.
Anyway, Im too tired just now to go through the blog fixing all the pictures that have been knocked out of whack for some reason so I will bid you a good night!!
So Im reading Trout at Ten Thousand Feet at the moment. Highly entertaining…
John Bailey has travelled all the world’s continents in pursuit of fish. His extraordinary adventures have taken him to the most remote and inhospitable parts of the globe as well as those more familiar areas much closer to home. He has encountered espionage, death threats, and even a plane crash, as well an immense variety of fish and a collection of assorted characters from around the world, many of which he is proud to call true friends. Trout at Ten Thousand Feet is a collection of John Bailey’s remarkable and hugely entertaining fishing tales that reflect a lifetime’s passion for fishing. This exciting, adventurous and often humorous book brilliantly captures the essential magic and mystery of angling – from anchovy to zander. Laced with witty and apposite line illustrations throughout, the book is a fascinating and compelling read, and the perfect gift for any fisherman.
HA!!!! you didnt think you were going to get away THAT easilly did you with a couple of pictures of trees. Well here is the worst case of vanity publishing ever…
Yes, thats me with a crocodile….a baby one….and here is another one of me…..on the beach…….in ma Kilt!!!
One of the touts on the beach said myself and the other two guys looked like Kings They had only ever seen people in Kilts on the telly. Nearly made up for lugging the thing thousands of miles!! (almost)
AAaaaaaahhhhhh Lovely Sri Lankin sunset
Today I bought some Angling Glue……..I have a plan as to how to attach my braided leader to my fly line……essentially Im going to glue it on. If it works I shall post a photo tommorow….if not I will post a humorous photo of myself with my fingers stuck together.
It is time to bore you with some holiday photees.
I returned home today to pouring rain and windy weather. As I flew over Glasgow I could see that the rivers are muddy and could see large puddles on the golf courses. RAH!!!
Here is a picture of myself standing next to an Elephant tree, so called as the base looks like the shape of an elephants footstep.
Now this once I cannot mind what it is called….i think it was something with the word jasmine in it…i will find out and tell you if you are really interested….
It was absolutely massive. It was almost like a few trees that had joined up as it seemed to have 3-4 trunks……here is my brother n law and myself standing next to one…
Highly impressive……I will put up some pictures of smellyphants later!!
I am now in Birmingham and will be staying here until Monday afternoon when as soon as I get in I will be picking up the rod and walking straight back out again. Im gagging for a fish.
I will allso bore you all with holiday pictures…….trees, monkeys, elephants (smellyphants), and three wheeled took tooks!!!
Checked my mails today for the first time in a couple of weeks and am trawling through them sending replies… so if you have sent a mail and ive not replied that is why. Or I dunno… you could try reading the blog and realise that sending me a mail is a WASTE OF TIME IN THE FIRST PLACE 😛 …..jeepers …….only kidding!!!!
I also have a good few gmail invites to give out so give me a shout if you want one….just leave a messege.
Something I noticed about my blog and my website is that it looks pretty poor on a comp with a low res. Like if you go to the Urban Flyfishing on the Kelvin site the logo at the top is cut in half…..and also on this blog things look kinda odd…if you look up to the top right of your screen just above “blogs of note” you may see a little indent. The indent should not be there, it should eb smooth. Ironically the blog and the site looks like the dogs bollocks on my computer ie great however on others it looks weird. So…..if you want to give me some tips on how to fix it let me know……how I can easilly fix it that is. I may try and get it working next week sometime…..if I am not fishing every day…which I will be.
If anyone has been fishing the last couple of weeks…..down the kelvin I would appreciate if you could let me know how you have been fairing….iether mail me or leave a little comment here. You dont have to put your secret little spots or flies…just if you have been doing well.
Anyway…….jet lag catching up i think so …
Well hello from Sunny Sri Lamka….well in fact it is not actually sunny it has been raining the last few days…..not normal rain though…wild monsoon rain.Does not matter as we have done all the fun stuff anyway (including the wedding which i came over for). Stayed in a little village complex in the middle of a jungle where you could not go out at night in case the wild elephants trampled you…woohoo…woke up in the morning with monkeys chapping at the door and turtle things acting like doorstops. Speaking of elephants went for an elephant ride and almost fell off……im telling you….those big things should be called smellyphants!!
I will bore you with some photos when I get home…..rain seems to be clearing im away for a walk along the beach. Also Im paying a stupid amount of cash to check my mails but gmail doesnt work with ie5….grrrrrrr!!!
WooHOOO…..nowt to do with fishing at all but I thought you may interested in knowing that I have passed my resits for UNi. This means that I am in fact getting in to my final year. Allso meaning that I do not get a further two summers off which i was looking forward to but the old ball n’ chain was not impressed by that reasoning.
