blowing away the cobwebs

Cabin fever has well and truly set in over the Christmas holidays, we had hoped to get out for a grayling trip or two but with the constant wind and rain that's not been possible, on some days taking the dog out for a walk has been a thought to be honest, but then it is winter i guess. Anyway with the weather not looking too bad today Col and i decided on a wee coarse fishing session at Eliburn res.

 the rain still managed to put in an appearance

it took a while before our floats registered a bite, which turned out to be a lovely Roach to start of 2014

a few more Roach followed soon after the first and also an Ide

 after that some missed bites and long periods of inactivity before Col landed a Roach and another Ide

 so not the most productive of sessions but it was great to get out fishing again after a long month of no fishing.


  1. Well done on getting out guys, the days are getting longer or so I keep telling myself...

  2. Cheers Martin, aye it's heading in the right direction at least, all to look forward to in the months ahead.

  3. Bloody weather! Doing my head in too. Good old Eliburn. :-)

    1. Too true Scott, Eliburn's been a great wee venue for those difficult winter days.

  4. Nice fish guys, Eliburn (Deans Ressie) was a childhood haunt of mine, there's a ton more fish in it these days mind. I'm hoping to fish tomorrow, first time since last August, my longest break from fishing for many years, can't wait :)

    I've enjoyed reading your posts and other while I've been out of action so cheers!

  5. thanks Douglas , hope the fishing go's well for you tommorow.
