waiting for tourists

Hello ,well i was at the river today just after the torrential downpour which was like something from a Taiwan news report on the monsoon with small streams appearing in the street and people running for cover in every direction luckily i was on the bus for the worst of it which i was very glad of ,so after getting of the bus at kelvinhall i proceeded to walk down to the river along past the transport museum were i noticed a nice fish in the shallows which with a flick of its tail was gone under a tree on the far bank ,thinking the river will be on the rise very soon i made my Way to the falls at the old mill at yorkhill were i met a couple of kids fishing and a guy who was fishing under the bridge with the worm ,i ask if he had seen any sign of the grilse but their had been no sign of them so i made quick stuff of getting my gear set up and was soon fishing and almost straight away i had what looked more like a line bite with that sharp pull and release which i had a lot of last season. I stayed for another hour but soon noticed the river was rising fast and was becoming dangerous so i made my way from the falls and spent some time watching the falls for any sign of fish moving in with the rising water which i only seen one crashing across a section of water which was around 2 ft deep ,so I'm thinking that it might be worth a try tomorrow to see if any fish came into the river during the night time tide which is meant to be a high tide ,so i think i will take my camera and try to get some good pics of any fish i manage to see jumping the falls, so until then take care folk and good luck with the fishing..
