  1. The continuing adventures of the Fluff Club, Episode 40

    (In which the names of the Fluff Boys are pseudonyms but everything else factual, in hope of the widest appeal to readers)

    Flippin' 40! Didn't think about numbers of episodes when I began the blog. I just wish I had 40 comments or snippets of feed-back, it would be good to know what y'all think, what you enjoy, or don't. Any response is a positive thing. Unseasonably mild and nary a breeze, good cloud cover but some sunshine expected to break through later, all in all, a cracking ...
  2. The continuing adventures of the Fluff Club, Episode 39

    (In which the participants are pseudonyms but all else factual, in an attempt to appeal to a wider audience)

    Earwig o again. Apologies for the hiatus, I didn't make the last Fluff Club outing (to the lovely Duncton Mill fishery, episodes 12 & 31), due to circumstances conspiring against me. You know, there really should be a Government Warning when you think about having children, otherwise we continue to be ignorant of and oblivious to, the real peril to come, arising in the ...
  3. Spice: a safer option to picric or dye.

    I'll not get curried away with this as I believe the range of colours available to me are limited. But, the couple of results I've achieved so far have been better than good.

    The deepest yellow obtainable outside of a very strong dye bath and a brown olive to compliment the former are two most acceptable colours for any traditionalist and both by way of a combination of spices.
    The process is a tad fussy, at least the way I've gone about it anyway, though I hope there's another ...

  4. Lake of Menteith 25/10/18(B.P.Angling Club Outings)

    A light South Westerly breeze for most of the day and little rain made for good fishing conditions on our last outing of the season.
    The expected bonanza at Gateside just a few days after the ropes were lowered didn't happen,but most of our anglers enjoyed the day with some decent bags at the weigh in
    27 fish were caught for 65lb with 3 bag limits all caught on a variety of lines and the best flies were cormorants fished washing line style with candy boobies on the point.Wilson ...

  5. Golden Loch near Newburgh 23/10/18 C&R session

    High winds in Dunfermline ,with Stenhouse shut we head up to The Goldenloch and sure enough just a small ripple on the water . Temp 6C the sun is shining and their is a gentle breeze from the west ,the water clarity is crystal clear . This is a sheltered loch from east /west winds and we often find that it is fishible when others are closed . We have a blether with John Nicol before we venture out . There are fish moving but we do not find the answer for an hour . Small red and black snatchers ...
