Tenuous Fishing Photos 30,31,32/52

I have finally caught up with myself on the tenuous fishing photos – ok that was a bit of a mid way blip however I shall endeavour to keep a single weekly picture going – I put it down to the increase of fishing #grin#


I found the above rather nice gesture in the park on a ledge – nothing says romantic fool like some wild flowers stuck in an empty bottle of cheap wine. It conjours up visions of teenage love and possibly drunken advances….or maybe just someone decided to litter in style..


Number 31 is a classic – this stuff appears to be appearing more and more on the banks of the Kelvin – I am noticing it more after the river walk a couple of weeks ago – anglers are warned not to touch it if you break some stems – its sap can cause you to burn and blister – I read somewhere about a guy who’s skin is still photosensitive years later because of its evil juice..


To be fair number 31 is in fact an old picture so do not go panicking at not being able to fish – I just thought I would use it as an example of just how out of action the river can get – hot chocolate indeedy.

Phew – up to date!

    Know what you mean Alistair about the Hogweed,Japanese knotweed and balsam when out and about doing my deliveries its all over the place.

    I am fairly sure that that weed you have pictured is Giant Hogweed and that the Council, if notified, should take action to eradicate it. I know that that is the case in England but I have only been back a short time so I don’t know if that is the case here.

    The whole river is laden with the stuff mike .. we completed a survey of the river a couple of weeks ago where the whole river was walked and four types of invasive species marked down on maps..at some point in the future we may start at The top and work our wary down to try and get rid of it however it is a pretty huge undertaking!
    Problem is – sure you could just cut it down however it is not really tackling the problem!
