Well, I got myself some dedicated hosting for my little site, for only a tenner a year……one of the benefits is that I get LOTS of webspace and am able to install a proper blog actually on the site. Anyway, the old blog is still in place untill I can find a way to back up the whole thing and then put it on my hosts site. Will take me a while I reckon. The other reason is that my girlfriends space was running out for pictures, and I really need that space for storing other stuff like essays n stuff.
I knew it was bad when the instructions got wet
We were lost, with a compass , which we didnt know how to use……That is why i fish in an urban environment!
This is a TEST post!!
Should I go out the first day of the season?
Here is my dry flies…
Like i said Highlander gave me this::
Im keeping my spiders and my new nymphs in it )
Hmmmmm…..they are crap photos actually, ah well….I was trying to make the load times a bit easier!!!
I need waders!!! badly!!!
Only another ten days untill the season starts proper! I have been having a look through my tackle making sure I have everything up to scratch. I still want to get my new rod, reel and line but I dont know whether i will have to sacrifice it for my new manly waders.
Sorting out my fly box and wallet I was amazed at the amount of duff flies I have acumulated. I am only using two cases for carrying flies this season, a dry fy box and a rather cool leather fly wallet that Highlander over at the highlander way gave me…….what a star!!! I will post a little picture of it later as im in a bit of a rush right now.
Must dash……gotta work!!!!
WADERS that’s what I need, damn right…manly waders….Like these beauties
Vision extreme ….With a name like that IM BOUND to catch more fish…..Plus the fact I will look like a juggling clown will attract TONS of fish to me as I have learned that you must look like a clown to actually catch fish.
Now all I need is to get 200 bucks from somewhere to actually buy these waders …….And scrape together a further 160 quid to buy my dream rod. Can you see a pattern emerging here?
IM also in a bit of a quandary as I don’t know whether to buy rubber soled boots or those fancied felt ones. Considering that I walk on wet grass a lot and the bottom of the Kelvin has slimy weed I reckon the rubber ones….hmmmmmmm.
I need to look for things to sell on eBay!!!!!
Ive done nowt lately in the blog, mostly because I have had lots of shitey real life stuff to do. Was all set to buy my new rod, reel and get a cracking line into the bargain when a pipe burst so had to pay for that. Im raging!!!!
If anyone wants to donate money to my new rod fund my paypal account is firstname.lastname@example.org ……if you donate…. when im a fully qualified social worker ill see ya good….nudge nudge #cough#cough#jokeWent for a walk along the kelvin today, make sure you check out the site often as i will start to update it again soon.
Did i tell you i was devatated about my new rod?
Hmmmm, was at the AGM tonight and it was certainly an eye opener. Some extremely passionate people with some very good points!!
Im going to put a page on the site later one….possibly in the next couple of days.!!
Hells Bells, I volunteered for the Commitee as well!!
Happy New Year from Ally and Claire!!
Couldnt Find a newer picture
I bought a DVD just before crimboand watched it just the other day. Its about Czech Nymphying with a bloke called Oliver Edwards. Anyway, I zoomed past all the bit about tying the actual flies and just watched the part where he shows you how to fish em. I was thinking about this little stretch here…
That might be very very effective down that little bit…..That little pool……its a short walk to get to it from the Vet School stretch…..so would be worthwhile.
I am really looking forward to the season opening. I have a fly tying vice and will be going tomorrow to buy some materials to actually tie the nymphs now…….Looks like I will be looking at that DVD again.
I need a pair of waders now. By the way make sure you look through the archives for the blog……the last couple of months have been pretty boring as no fishing has been done but before that……..well……I like trees!!
