…for thinking that all I appear to do these days is get myself banned from internet forums for making statements about how lovely trout are. However I have actually managed to wet a line – in fact last week twice. Both times were nothing much to write home about and on one occasion I forgot my camera.
The first session was in a tiny burn that was rumored to hold nice trout – my skills were found wanting and I left with a new found sense of shame at my casting ability..
However I was not to be outdone and headed down to the Kelvin for literally half an hour after work one day – the river had risen around 6 inches however had dropped back down leaving the river the color of what I can only describe as shit. Still, the trout did not appear to mind and they rose in the most annoying and had to reach places – I managed to raise one trout eventually and lost another nice one due to a dodgy knot – like I say I forgot my camera so this highly accurate representation will have to do..
I am hoping you chaps are fairing better than I am at the moment – in fact I know you are as I keep reading about it.
