Sunday walk

Long time no speak – first frost this morning down my way – car was frozen and the central heating kicked in – the temp will drop to minus fifteen in no time … out for a walk with the family just now .. here are some pictures.. fishing tomorrow morning for salmon – the river looks lovely today – I saw one angler fishing the fly for trout and no others!

The things you find on Amazon…

Oh man – with Christmas coming up I am sure all the relatives are wondering what to buy the folk that fish – they could do a lot worse/better than this sweet belt buckle -:

That looks like one pissed off fish¬†that’s¬†all I can say – a reviewer on Amazon stated the only drawback was having to buy a belt to go with it. I can think another few – such as finally hitting the¬†style brick wall – you can of course click the picture to buy it straight from Amazon – promise I wont judge you!

  • RT @flyfishmagazine: While everyone was busy at #IFTD we decided to "sneak" into the Orvis Corporate Office. #
  • I am told the kelvin is a good heigt for salmon – in other words it is a muddy mess only fishable with metal monsters – I leave at 3pm! #

Currently on the kelvin …

Fishing for salmon … just had a touch … here is hoping !


There has been fishing…

Aye – there has been fishing – a fair few trips if the truth be told – I am split between Pike and Troot at the moment – every time there is a bit of rain I think about Salmon on the Kelvin and then get annoyed about all the pishy¬†nonsense¬†that appears to come because of them – poaching, huge ego’s bashing up against each other and snobbery.

And people wonder why I like the simple trout so much.

A wee pike - they don't get much smaller..

Those people that follow me on twitter know that I have been out and about РI even hit a loch at around 0500 in the morning for Pike and then had to wander around for an hour until it was actually light enough for the beasts to see the fly Рit then turned out as it had been unseasonably warm the place was stuffed full of horrible green goo Рnot that the beasts minded they were quite happy splashing about in it Рmy flies were not so happy at dragging the stuff back in.

Talking of being weird weather РI notice that Summer has now well and truly departed and we are left with good old fashioned Autumn weather Рraining and windy! What the heck happened to Summer that is what I want to know РI sear it gets shorter and shorter every year.

Talking of the years flying by – the boy was waving around my Pike outfit down at the local canal the other day ..

What is that all about – feels like he was born a week ago or something…to be fair the old Loop Pike Booster is a 9 weight so I think going gently on the lack of double hauling power is allowed..

Anyway – this was just a quick post to let you guys know I am still in the land of fishingdom – two trips planned this week – possibly a Salmon trip (potential doom factor code red) and a Trout trip on Friday (potential joy factor code green)

Ta Ta!
