Dog Owner?

My cocker spaniel, Bonnie, used to come along on many of my trips, especially where a decent walk was involved. More into running around chasing sticks than wasting time waiting for a fish, she was always great company. She’s a little long in the tooth these days but still enjoys the odd overnight in the… Continue reading Dog Owner?

Summer fishing mini-reports

A brace of spurdog

I find I tend not to do too much fishing in the height of summer, if there is such a thing in Scotland, but I do try and wet a line from time to time and here are a few mini-reports that didn’t get the full treatment.

Fishing 2016 – Onwards and upwards?

Ian looking happier than the tope

Traditionally this is about time for a whisky fuelled look into what fishing 2016 might offer together with a review of how 2015 went.

This means quite a few tweaks still need to be made to take advantage of the new capabilities, mainly through adding or changing images, which I’ll sort out over Christmas.

Also some updates to pages, including a new one covering Loch Leven, which I’m fishing more often these days. Some have expanded content and others some additional images added.
