So the Kelvin AGM was a lot of fun – if someone had told me a couple of years ago that we would have a strictly no kill policy for trout I would have thought they were havering but there you go. Someone who shall remain nameless who allegedly caught a 3lb brown trout and [...]
It is that time of year again – the infamous all swearing and general craziness that is the River Kelvin Angling Association AGM.
I wonder what will happen this year? This is only the 2nd time in around 20 years there has been an agenda so lets have a look at it shall we?
That’s it lads – it is now (Monday) 50 days until the start of the trout season. The temps appear to be sitting above freezing now and there is a sun in the sky. In fact today we are getting 8 hours, 6 mins and 28 seconds of daylight.
Conditions are possibly balmy (or [...]
Slagging off the people that are in control of your fishing appears to be in vogue these days (plus I need to try and get together my hosting fees) – so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon in my own, dare I say, capitalistic, style – yes that is correct you can now [...]

Just a quick update as I know there will be some people unable to attend the EGM.
As EGM’s go it was pretty boring – no gunfights, no “dance off” between rival factions and only one heckler – and even he is a long gunmen who really should be given his own place on the [...]
Long story short I caught feck all and had my picture taken holding a spinning rod – is this what I have been reduced to?
Paul Reid – not floundering – honest!
I jest – I jest – it was a nice being on the river when ordinarily I would be waiting some 150 [...]
One month until the start of the season and it is still very cold.
I am currently wondering if the temperature is going to rise and give us a good start to the season. The first fly we should all be looking out for are “Large Dark Olives” – an absolutely lovely wee [...]
It is a room full of men at the Kelvin 2010 AGM:
This is half a room of Kelvinators – this post was actually deleted by accident however Tom Chandler over at Trout Underground asked where the Kilts and bagpipes were – that is easy Tom – they were in the other half of [...]
