The Lady of the Stream.



Every year I look forward to the cold of January! So I can get out to the river and try and catch these magnificent wild fish. The technique is simple stand in a river up to your waste in freezing cold water and dangle some flies very close to the bottom of the river bed and pray you get a bite.



Seriously cold this year with one trip at -10 degrees. It really was very difficult to even keep the rod rings from freezing! Not to mention me! January has been good on the river despite heavy rain, gale force wind and floods but that's what keeps it interesting. A few more pics below of my catches so far this year if you fancy Grayling fishing get in touch but be warned its not easy but is very rewarding.

Matt & Alex three day adventure on Loch Leven was in the planning for nearly a year and it was well worth the wait! With high winds forecast, we were all nervous but we managed to find the fish and lets say we absolutely smash it!


Alex with his MASSIVE 25lb 4oz Scottish Pike!

First day, we had 10 fish to the net which included 4 over 10lb the biggest weighing in at just over the 15lb mark for Matt. Considering we had another two days to go we were all in high spirits and could not wait to see what the next two day had in store for us.



Second Day, we were in for a shock 6 fish including Alex Monster of 25lb 4oz, and then 10 minutes after Matt landed a 17lb fish we just couldn't believe it!

Third day, another 8 fish which included several absolute beasts! And by this time we were thinking it was all a dream and we were in some sort of Pike heaven!



This really was a trip of a lifetime and what made it special was it was a gift from Matt to Alex for his Birthday. For once I am speechless! Oh yes forgot to mention we had a double hook up as well! Just check out the photos.


All the pics from the three day adventure below so have a good look and enjoy. I can't wait to get back out on the water with these guys and make more memories. It really was a laugh a minute, not to mention so exciting to see what was going to happen next.


Matt & Alex with all there fish!
