A Thursday Update

Posted by on May 14, 2010 in Fly Casting | 0 comments

I have actually noticed that since we are an hour and a half past midnight it is infact Friday but as far as this post goes, we are talking about Thursday! Tonight saw another meeting of the Glasgow Casting Club and as usual there were a good number of beginners along as well as the regulars, which was all the more encouraging since tonight’s weather was a bit dreich to say the least! Rain, clouds and a bit of a breeze! I spent the first hour or so teaching a young lad that I have been working with for the past couple weeks – his casting is really coming along! Tonight we worked...

3 Down, 1 to Go!

Posted by on May 12, 2010 in Everything Else, Fly Casting | 0 comments

It’s getting nearer……. that sound of silence broken only by birds overhead or rising trout! That’s 3 exams done and out of the way, one last one left to go in four days time. Roll on the fishing after monday! I cannot wait – I’ve been waiting to go fishing since the start of the season! Hopefully the weather will become a bit more settled and will warm up a bit, the last few days have seen minus temperatures in places here in mid May! I received two new rods yesterday, two models of the new Loop Evotec series – they will be getting a thorough testing...

Things have been pretty boring over the past while as can be seen my the amount of recent posts! I’m on study duty, I have exams coming up, starting in 3 days time and as such I haven’t been out fishing! Full time study – yes it’s been that exciting! I did manage down to the Tweed Angling Fair at Kelso which was good fun, managed to try out the new Loop Evotec rods. I originally went to trial the rods and ended up spending an hour or two with Thomas Berggren, head designer at Loop. A fascinating insight into the company and some very interesting line prototypes in the...

A Fruitless Week

Posted by on Mar 28, 2010 in Fly Casting, Fly Fishing | 0 comments

Unfortunately as the title suggests, it has been a bit of a fruitless week. A short trip fishing on Thursday 25th to a local burn – the North Calder provided no fish. It was good to get out fishing again though and it let me tick it off the list of those mysteries that had yet to be investigated. It’s been pretty cold and I haven’t heard of many fish being caught anywhere so far this season. Went along to the casting club today, one new face, a friendly Italian chap who had decided fly fishing was something he really wished to do. Alex, one of the other instructors, spent...

Itching To Get Going

Posted by on Mar 22, 2010 in Fly Casting, Fly Fishing | 0 comments

The brown trout opened one whole week ago here in Scotland and I’ve yet to get the rod tackled up and out on some wild waters! The weather has started to warm up a bit and I’ve got one more big piece of work this week (for Wednesday) and then I’m free to get out and chase those trouts! Weather forecast is a bit variable for the end of the week just now but hopefully a nice warm, overcast day with not too strong winds will be the order of the day. That just leaves me whether I choose a nice wee loch I have my mind on or whether I go for a local burn that I have never fished....
