2017 opening ceremony – 18th March

It’s that time of the year again, it is the Kelvin opening ceremony ! We will be meeting in the Islay inn at around 1130 for a dram and breakfast and then at around midday we will be piped down the road to the river. We are probably the only club that has to stop at traffic lights !

Our Chairman Atkins will give a short speech and then we all get to laugh at him stumbling around trying to cast!

Please bring your wives and kids as it really is a nice couple of hours!

Going, Going………Gone!

I have decided to remove the function of the forum from this site as quite frankly it does not get used. We get more people contacting us through the facebook page now that it makes sense to just have it all over their. Consequently please join our brand new official facebook group called the:

River Kelvin Fishers

It is the only place that you will get honest to goodness members giving advice and of course access to the committee .

I will delete the forum in a couple of days.



2015 Catch Return form now live!

A member got in contact to point out that the form was still showing 2014 – this has now been rectified.
If you have submitted your returns on the old one everything should have migrated over to the 2015 one so all should be good.

Cheers Guys

2013 Start of the Season Video

We had a great start of the season celebration on Saturday, it was Baltic and nobody caught any fish. Consequently, the bottle of whiskey bought for the first Salmon caught was then downgraded to the first trout. Last time I seen it was when Paul Reid was sticking it back in his bag muttering something about how he was loaded with the cold.

What we did get was rolls n’ sausage, good chat, Paul Young, a fine piper and some most excellent hospitality provided by the Islay Inn.

Many thanks to the members, the Islay Inn, Donald Mackenzie, Paul Young and all the friends and family that braved the cold on the day.

We hope you all have a great season!
