Yup. That screams troot!


My judgement is that Huntly is within a  reasonable distance from Aberdeen. : :X2
Great news today. Glad to have specifics on what "broadly 5 miles" means. Count down begins...

Fly Tying / Dabbler - another fly i have never tied

So thought it was about time. Looks 'fishy'

So Jimmy Crankie has said that there is a five mile limit on travel  for fishing, golf etc. Does she not realise that cyclists have been doing 50 miles plus since lockdown began? Hell I have been doing 12 mile sprints on my bike.
The only fishing that is within 5 miles of me is the North Esk and it is so low that there are no salmon in it. There are some excellent trout that I have been watching on my daily exercise but the chances of being allowed to fish for them are small.  Even if I played golf the nearest course is 6 miles away. My nearest Tesco is 15 miles away and we go twice a week to Montrose. Never saw a soul on the beach yesterday and my dogs had a ball in the sea.
And still the cyclists fill the roads in groups that are clearly not the same family.
A pointless platitude from a pointless MP. Nae impressed.



Fire me a message about fishing the Northie 😉


Roll on the 28th, or whatever date the First Minister announces on the 28th  :z16

She did say that some things might start a few days later  :wink ....... but of course, nobody heard that  :z4

Thanks for the confirmation Eddie ...... Well done the Postie :z16

Roll on the 28th  :z12

Best wishes

She has just announced that there is not a five mile limit but that we should use our own judgement. So as long as there are not huge crowds all going to known beauty spots all should be okay. I am sure that their will not be huge swathes of people heading to where we want to go.  :z16
