So I was thrown out the house today as my fiancÃ© had someone coming around to give here a â€œpreviewâ€ of what her make up would look like on our wedding day.
â€œYou will just have to go fishingâ€ She said!
â€œIf you insistâ€
As it turned out the smaller tributary was pretty low. Yesterday would have been good as it had been raining a little bit but the water has soon all ran off. In fact it was so low that I did not think I was actually going to catch any trout.
Eventually, after losing what felt like two nice trout (I was using my new bamboo rod which was nice) I walked right to the Junction poolâ€¦..this is where the tributary meets the Kelvin ( There is a picture of it Here). I was thinking of walking back home but the Kelvin looked kind of dark so thought it would be a waste of time, instead I walked back very very slowlyâ€¦â€¦I eventually managed to winkle out a couple of trout and scared absolutely loads.
At one point I was wading very slowly upstream herding what seemed like around 30 odd trout ahead of me. Not big fish but certainly nice! By that point I was not very bothered as even using stealth mode I was spooking fishâ€¦..I would see trout darting past my feet , back upstream , down again, back up and then zoom for the weeds.
Looking forward to the next little bit of rain, if no more rain I at least know somewhere on the Kelvin I should be able to tease out some trout if the going gets tough!
