What a Day to be Out

Fishing to me isn’t all about catching fish. Yeah, it’s really, really good to get a fish or two to make the day feel fully worthwhile…especially after a lean spell, but especially as I get older ( and mobility becomes more of an issue), I can happily spend a lot of my fishing time just […] The post What a Day to be Out appeared first on the unfamous fly ..read more

One In The Net, Finally and the Missing Rod

I was starting to forget what it was like to catch a fish. I have actually been out once or twice over the last few months but have struggled to get so much as a pull never mind land a fish. On several occasions it wasn’t just me who struggled, it was evident the fish […] The post One In The Net, Finally and the Missing Rod appeared first on the unfamous fly ..read more

Not Dour just Difficult

I don’t know what it is about the prospect of having to work an (unexpected) night shift that pushes me out the door looking for my fishing rod. This is twice in recent times I have had night worked dumped on me and felt I needed to go and get some fresh air and the […] The post Not Dour just Difficult appeared first on the unfamous fly ..read more

Fly Fishing Lightweight

I am guilty of carrying too much when I go out fishing, far, far too much. Too many flies, too much other unnecessary stuff, cameras, mini tripods, a wading staff when arguably it isn’t needed, a drone, a drone controller and batteries…snacks, drinks…the list goes on. But then fishing is only really part of what […] The post Fly Fishing Lightweight appeared first on the unfamous fly ..read more

No Drama

I admit it hasn’t been a full season of fishing for me this year. The early part of the season was impossibly dry, the rivers were like puddles and the Loch was a 30 metre walk over the dried-out stoney bottom to reach the water’s edge. And the fish just weren’t making themselves known. But […] The post No Drama appeared first on the unfamous fly ..read more

What a swing in conditions we have had. As you will know if you live here at all, it has not been the warmest springtime on record, in fact just a few days ago they were saying how it was one of the coldest May’s in many years. It has on the whole been reasonably […] The post Putting A Shift In For Tommy appeared first on the unfamous fly ..read more

With Friday looking set fair weather-wise AND having the Easter weekend off, and my Mrs was out for the day, I pondered what to do. Fishing somewhere was the plan, I did think about maybe going and getting a ticket for the River Devon which I haven’t had for a few seasons, but its still […] The post Picking My Time appeared first on the unfamous fly ..read more

With (yet another) Friday off, and with some plans later in the afternoon I found myself looking out the window at a reasonably mild day with about 4 hours or so to fill. The post Fighting Fish and Finding Freedom appeared first on the unfamous fly ..read more

It is that small pre-season window when members of LASAC are permitted to fish at Loch Coulter for Pike. This last few years the club has allowed us to visit the water in the two weeks pre-season and I think one week after the season ends ( would need to check that) and see if […] The post Trying to get Pikey appeared first on the unfamous fly ..read more

The guys I could see up the far bank had hooked several fish in the time I had been there and I reckon lost one or two maybe as well, but it felt good not to have needed to resort to the dark side so far!
