Some LRF action at least!

I am getting sick of Facebook – every time I go on it all I read about is Kelvinators hauling in huge trout from the Kelvin on the River Kelvin Fishers page.

I am currently in a Holiday Cottage that is probably as far down the Clyde as on can possibly go without actually being outside the Clyde. Anyway, I had some respite this evening when I was dropping off some stuff at my house and headed down to my wee LRF spot.

First few casts I did not think I was going to connect to anything as it was a bit windy however then a wee pollock decided to nail my pink isome.



It fair took some line and was safely returned. I then took another which was slightly bigger and then lost what I think was a wrasse at my feet. Their was no distinctive wrasse tapping, just a slamming take and a dive for the depths.

At my feet

At my feet

I then cast far and felt what I thought was another pollock but tuned out to be a nice codling.



I decided after this it was time to head up the road as tomorrow I am heading back up the estuary to another holiday cottage – I believe the next one is near a Sea Trout mark.

Watch this space!



I really enjoy reading your comments - say something!

    While grubbing around on the Sky /Freeview channels Just noticed that
    Trout ‘n’ About is being reshown on STV Glasgow …dunno what episode is
    on today at 4.30 but these things tend to be repeated ….I might have
    mentioned before but one of the two guys was doing his Postman in
    Shawlands a while back and he told me who he was when I said ” Do I know
    you from somewhere ?”

    wow Alistair this is a little of a shock always seen u and Paul as real keepers of the river not removers of tackle etc.! although I can understand the motive to scare poacher’s from fishing the river ,ill be back next year and will be fully legit as rules go and would advise all people to do the same good luck on the vote Alistair and Paul and of course Allan.

    What do you mean? “Removers of tackle”?
