  1. Default Bob from Scotland

    Good Morning,thought I could introduce myself before I start my Friday morning.
    Im Bob,62Y.old ,been fishing for 50 of these mainly in the Scottish Borders,and the lochs of Scotland.Often take a pack and tent into the hills and fish the wild lochs.
    My local river is the Tweed where I get to once or twice a week,or sometimes I will cast a fly on the burns which can throw up the odd surpise now and again.
    I still work (or some would say just employed )as a a property inspector for a local property company,which gives me plenty time to check up on the local rivers to see how they are fishing as I travel around in what is a low populated and very scenic area.
    Hope I get to know some of you and we can compare fly tactics.although my I.T. skills (like putting on photos )are somewhat lacking

    Have a good week-end,tightlines.

    Bob

    Welcome to the group!

    As you can see from my name, our ancestors might have enjoyed some of that single malt together.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    I like the Kentucky libations myself, not Sour Mash but good Kentucky Bourbon. "mmmmmm".
    Cliff have you ever tried 'Moonshine'? I tried it once, that stuff will warm yer innerds quickly!! A guy I met on The Henrys' Fork brought some from North Carolina and was kind enough to share.

    No, I'm definately not a slender fella. Was only saying big boys because I know your a former College Football Lineman and you don't get to that point being a little guy, and I figure Dave is probably a big fella too, I'll probably find out he's 5'0" tall and 98 lbs soaking wet.

    I have not been 5'0" 98lbs since the 7th grade. Actual size now is 5' 10" and 205lbs. In a job where you have to throw your weight around it helps to have a little!!
