Right now I am stuck in the snow!
Update: It took me around 4 hours to get home from work.
Willie Yeomans (the River Clyde Scientist who is obsessed with Crayfish and who thinks I need to start jogging) posted in the forum about a new post that has arisen for someone who would like to become a “Kelvin Catchment Trainee”
Terrifying – in other words you will be thrown to the lions at fishing club AGM’s to be ripped apart like a zebra at the watering hole.
Only kidding – in all honesty if I did not have a job (and I was younger without a family and with a gigantic mortgage) that already sucked out my soul when you consider the amount of hours I have left to be near flowing water I might actually have went for it.
As it is I can only stick my oar in and hope that someone who actually deserves the job gets it - speaking of which I have a request for Yeomans ..
I was raking around my Mother n’ Laws computer (that I built) and found some pictures that my sister n’ law took a couple of years ago when she came Pike fishing with me – I had been on a roll for a few months catching enormous Pike on the fly every time I hit the loch, she is a budding artist and wanted to take some photos. Anyway, I regaled her with stories of enormous beasts from the depths however on this day I managed to catch bugger all and she retired to my car for heat and left me to it.
So basically she took some photos of me casting badly with enormous flies and walking sheepishly to the bank-side – she even bought waders for the fun. The plan was for me to cast the monstrosities and then give her the rod to retrieve the fly and play a Pike. She got bored with this and found being waist deep in freezing cold water not much fun.
Phew – only 4 pictures left of my (sometimes) weekly photo project – want me to do it again next year? I am thinking of actually opening it up to you guys to send in photos – what do you think?
In case you do not live in the UK the thing that everyone is talking about just now is the snow. It has not been this early since 1993 seemingly!
Consequently my 47th photo is dedicated to sledging.

Crayfish, Crayfish everywhere – maybe this is the kind of gear the Kelvin association should be selling – especially after the TV coverage of the news that the Kelvin has now been invaded by the beasts :
(all pics are links to Amazon)
Somewhere to hang your fishing jacket and hat..
Some weird music to help you sleep…
A mousemat as you read Urban Fly Fisher…
The report goes on to say that someone out there may have stuck them in the river on purpose – whether this is someone that holds a grudge against the association or someone who thinks they can make money from trying to sell this highly illegal beast we can only speculate – although if anyone has any info please do get in touch
