Down The Upper Clyde

When I set off down the M74 I'm usually heading south to visit my brother in Cumbria however on this ocassion my journey south was much shorter as I was going fishing.
I therefore cut off at Abington services , first for a coffee and   then continued on the short journey through Abington onto Crawford by the River Clyde.
I arrived just after midday at the Camps Rd nearby the ruins of Crawford Castle.
The weather was a bit mixed with bright sunny intervals interrupted  by periods of blustery wind and rain showers.
However I was prepared and soon I was on the river swinging my spiders across the current.
I had a great afternoon managing to net 1/2 a dozen small but fiesty brown trout which were great fun to catch. However I managed to rise and miss a few fish too.
All but one of them took a size 14 waterhen bloa. The exception being the trout that took a grouse & orange!
The Upper Clyde is a beautiful area to fish,  today I got the river all to myself and it was bliss!
