A few days have passed…

Well, a few days of interesting life has past since we last spoke.

Yesterday I got the Whip out and took the boy to the canal for an hour – I only had the one worm and needless to say I believe the stories I have heard about the declining population [...]

Good session – phew!

After some back breaking work on the Kelvin putting a bridge across a ditch * I found I had a spare couple of hours to fish the Kelvin.

I arrived at a spot I have only ever glanced at as I hurried past towards other pools however while I have been out for a run [...]

Sneaky Bastard!

To be fair the beast was only doing what the beasts do – looking at lunch!

I walked along the Forth n’ Clyde Canal today – my plan was to take some photos of the works that have been carried out on the banks of the Kelvin however I befriended a [...]

Polaroid Review – a lie, a half true and a true story (and stop telling me how sexy I look)

Coarse fish on the fly?

I admit I have no experience of this so am about to but this book:

You see, there is this huge shoal of roach on the canal that are taunting me every time I walk past – I know they can be caught [...]

Comfy Feet on the Kelvin

So Sunday night I decided on a dusk session on the Kelvin – it was another good session with lots of trout caught. No big ones this time – as I walked up the river there was a chap fishing down and across through the pool I wanted to stake out – this [...]

A month off work – so why no fishing?

So I have two weeks “paternity leave” and two weeks “annual leave” – of course before number two child was born I was sneakily thinking about fishing opportunities however the best laid plans are always totally blasted out the water by sleep deprivation and a doubling of family duties.

It has [...]

Weekly water photo – 12 of 52

A picture of the forth and clyde canal just before clydebank – this whole stretch seems pretty grim. I wonder if there are any pike kicking around!
