The Urban Fly Fisher
A satirical look at brownlining…
Woke up to 2″ of snow this morning, wasnt expecting much when i was walking the dog down the local river in a blizzardthis afternoon , but the flies were hatching better than ive seen over the last few weeks and a trout was even on the fin in one pool just wish i had the rod with me. temps are looking a lot better next week !
Good to know Colin – same thing has happened to me this morning, just woke up to a couple of inches of snow, no trout on the fin though 🙁
The worst thing about all this cold weather is that the river has not looked so good in a long time.
Never saw any flies hatching, I eventually resorted to wet flies, did ok with them though. forecast doesn`t look too good, Water was icy cold.
You know it is funny, i was speaking to someone the other day that told me they had been catching trout in between snow flurries on the Kelvin one year. In fact they were catching whilst it was snowing as well. Another angler told me that on his local he had seen olives and trout on the fin. I think I may go for a wee wander along the Kelvin this afternoon just to see what I see!
Alistair after work today stopped off at the river. Started at Bishops mill worked my way up to Kelvindale bridge. River still has a bit of colour but river it’s self is looking great. Checked out all the known trout hot spots but nothing moving. Just need the temperature to rise then hopefully the river will come alive.

Opening Celebration! (I think)
