A walk in the park – part seven!

This building caused a lot of problems !
There used to be a nice garden and cafe hang out next to the river !
Now it is flats – as I was writing this a nice trout rose below me!

A walk in the park – part one


Going for a walk along the river today – I will post as I go!
This is a five min walk from the river!

Dash to the river…

Ok – so Sunday I had a plan – the plan was to do some family stuff in the morning and then head down to the town stretch of the River Kelvin in the afternoon – the key of course was to sell this to my wife as some play time for her and the boy – she could then see me through the trees fishing – q=lots of waving at young son.

It got to 12…we still had not left….it got to 1pm…we still had not left…suddenly the fear took me – I could sense that the ingredients to a good session had all come together – unfortunately I was still in the house.

I rushed us out the house and into the car…

I was forgiven quickly...

Eventually I was fishing by around 2.30pm and instantly seen some rising trout – in total I caught two to the dry fly (I fluffed a few more risers) and then the river slowed down to a halt. I was far too late for the action..

Nice Riffle...

I met up with Paul Reid – he managed to tempt a nice wee trout to the dry in some fast water …

Oh bless - look at his wee thingy - looks even smaller in his giant hands!

…and he uses a Hardy as well!

It was a day for meeting people – we met the head bailiff and a pal out patrolling the river and also Stephen from the Kelvin forum out for a walk with his other half. We also seen Derek  Graham through the bushes however he did not seem to be in the mood to talk..

You can wave at me through the bushes...

All in all it was a pretty nice wee session however by around 4pm it was all over – the trout had all switched off for the evening.

Of course it has all changed now – the temp is high and we have a high pressure weather system sitting over us – today seemed ideal – good temp until the evening with some cloud cover – I heard that trout were rising like crazy last night at around dinner time – looking forward to hearing how you guys got on?
