    Field Mouse Invasion

    Up and down the road all summer. It's my new route to go south. Never saw one. :)In 16 years up here seen 6 hares. Nothing to do with shooting.

    Field Mouse Invasion

    Just googled the numbers and they are not in any trouble. Population level actually surprised me.

    Field Mouse Invasion

    The first scream I heard was a mountain hare up at Wanlockhead with my uncles setter being the culprit. Must have been about 12 and it has stuck with me. Amazingly this was nearing summer and the hare was still carrying a lot of white. Bet they don't even turn now in that location?

    Field Mouse Invasion

    Seen the same thing once. When one came out of a dry stone wall and took down a rabbit. Quite spectacular Rabbit screaming is disturbing, partly because the animal itself does not look like it should be making that noise - if that makes sense?

    Man UTD

    The difference being Shankly left Paisley some decent players where as Ferguson left Moyes an aging squad that needed re built. Moyes was always going to fail. Ferguson jumped at the right time to protect his legacy, and why not. I think the younger players will cope with a new system and if he...

    Investments in fly fishing gear

    Forty or fifty years ago antiques revolving around 'smoking' held and increased in value. Then people quit and nobody wants them. Less people fly fishing equals less future demand.

    Field Mouse Invasion

    This was probably my closest call yet. Old hot water cylinder. The black tape is where the rats chewed through to the copper, you can also see they have been chewing the tank. Quite happy to say I defeatistly cleared them out, the alternative being rather hot.

    Field Mouse Invasion

    Yes we have a surprising number of cold case mouse murders by the front door involving no heads. 'Thanks for your gift!'. Some cats can tackle rats but we had one cat that had it's ear sliced in two by a rat and never went near them again.

    Think you picked the best day this week. Weekend looks like surf boards might be more appropriate. First drop on snow / hail here today.

    Rare bluefin tuna found washed up on shore of Highland loch

    Not always. In the past I worked for Trinity Mirror group in Merseyside on the graphics side. Quite a few cock ups get through because of lack of genuine interest at the proof reading stage.

    Rare bluefin tuna found washed up on shore of Highland loch

    The editor comes into the office to assign stories. 'Jone's you are covering the serial killer in Glasgow, Jack you cover the celebrities swingers party, Jean you can interview Tyson Fury and erhh Martin you cover that dead fish on a beach in the middle of no where' and you wonder why Martin...

    Stillwater Nymphing Help

    Personally I'd count it down. Keep counting until you feel the bottom. Then you know how long it takes to get 10ft down. Not that I would be fishing 10ft down all the time. Trout will be feeding at all levels. Might be easier for you putting a heavy nymph on point and then a lighter one on the...
