There is a pool I know on the Kelvin – a few fishers know it (I know the infamous Jim Burns knows it) where the trout are plump, the water is deep and the casting is bloody difficult due to a steep bank behind you. The wading is also treacherous for someone as non nimble footed as I am!
There is a lovely tongue of water that comes down just next to those trees and in that tongue there are usually rising trout to be had – like I say they can be right Picky Bastards!
Jim and I once spent quite some time trying to tempt them – it has not always been like this though as I have fished this pool and taken several trout – good 3/4 pounders.
Next to this pool, nestled in the small cliff where there used to be some bushes that made this pool damn near impossible to fish until they were cut down there is what is commonly known as a “Bong” otherwise known in Glasgow as a “Bucket”
The “Bucket” is filled with water (hence the weekly water photo and I assume Kelvin water) and then used to inhale cannabis. Whoever these chaps were inhaling there herb obviously had good taste if they were sitting next to my lovely pool – I wonder if they saw the trout rising?
