Hello Folks, I’ve been a bit quiet on the interweb for some time now, but I’m going to try to be a bit more active for the rest of the year. Here is an interesting ad from an estate agent in Stromness on the mainland of the Orkney Islands. We had a great trip there back in June when the days never really end and the hills and meadows are lush and green. Looks like a great opportunity for some one who loves the islands and doesn’t mind living somewhere with a rude name!

The first brown trout of the 2018 season, caught after great effort and safely returned. The flyfishing season has had a dreadful start with winter lingering long after everybody is heartily sick of it. April so far has been like February, it’s snowing right now! I am getting ready for a trip to the Midwest of the US and I’m excited to catch up with many great folks and folkies that I haven’t seen for quite a wee while. Hopefully the midwest will be a bit more spring-like than here. Bonnie trout though…

Well folks, I’m home from my West Coast US tour, which has been a great trip. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me on the way and made it such a great highlight of my working year. I also had some very pleasant days off both down on the beautiful coast and up on the snowy mountains of the Cascades. I return to Scotland with plenty inspiration for the year ahead including some possible new events back in Scotland. The picture is of the sunrise at Clear Lake in northern California. I wish all the folks of the west a great year and I hope to be paddling in your ocean and sloping off to your slopes again next year.

Here’s a wee Valentine photo for Susie. The beautiful mountain is Mt Rainier from White Pass Washington. It was a really bonnie day.

The Californians have taken the drive thru culture to new heights – 315 feet! Have just driven out of California and into Oregon after some great shows. Thank you everyone who has kindly supported me on the way – I liked your giant redwoods so much I bought one! It is only five inches tall but will catch up with this fellow after a couple of thousand years. Oregon is looking lovely in a spell of very pleasant weather. I’ve already had a lovely show in Corvallis and am looking forward to seeing a bunch of great folkies in this beautiful state.
