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.
Those people that follow me on twitter know that I have been out and about – I 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 – it then turned out as it had been unseasonably warm the place was stuffed full of horrible green goo – not that the beasts minded they were quite happy splashing about in it – my flies were not so happy at dragging the stuff back in.
Talking of being weird weather – I notice that Summer has now well and truly departed and we are left with good old fashioned Autumn weather – raining and windy! What the heck happened to Summer that is what I want to know – I 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)
