Kelly Kettle

Postby jhcabs » Mon Nov 03, 2014 12:32 pm

Not sure how well known these things are but i thought it was worth sharing. I got one recently as a gift and It's quickly becoming an essential bit of kit for every trip since.

Hot tea, cooking my catch and even keeps the hands warm. much better than any of those gas ones and light even to carry with some tinder and firelighters

A friend produced one on a trout trip last year. great job
arguably a lot easier with a wee gas burner though! :)

2019 targets:
a specimen flounder (2.5lb+ or 40cm+), first tope, first bluefin tuna
First wolffish, a 35lb+ shore-caught halibut, a 20lb+ shore-caught cod, a 10lb+ coley, a 4lb+ plaice (Norway)

Many a cuppa I’ve had at that spot Chuckaroo!( But hot water courtesy of a flask). I could imagine the Kelly Kettle or “Volcano” adding to the pleasure of a day out on the water.
