Grayling Day

Huge thanks to Charles & Alex Jardine for coming along for our annual Grayling Day. Unfortunately the river was brown & cold after over night rain so no fish were caught. But we did enjoy one of John Aplin’s curries next to river – thanks to him for that and for Members who also contributed …

Last Gasp Trip

We did manage a last gasp trip for grayling at the end of February.  There was a chill east wind but the river was not too high and relatively clear. We wanted to try a new spot after the opening of the upper water so tested a few likely pools at Whitfield Hatches.  It was …

Lewis Hendrie

We arrived as the rain stopped, but the river was already very full and described by everyone as “challenging”!! England International and professional fishing guide Lewis Hendrie was on hand to talk about his rods, reels, lines, tippets, flies and techniques to catch our River Frome grayling. He showed us how to fish the nymphs …

Beginner’s Luck?

Despite becoming a member back in 2014, it was not until last week that I was first able to fish any of the club waters for the first time. Living nearly 250 miles away in Cheshire does not really help but, as an introduction to the fantastic fishing the club has to offer, I could …

Grayling Social

After a quick chat and an agreed lunchtime rendezvous, we all headed off to fish for the lady of the stream. The nymph fisherman found the grayling very uncooperative, but …

Q=2*W*H^1.5

When gazing at the river have you ever wondered how much water is flowing past you? The Club’s website gives the link to the Environment Agency and the water levels at Loud’s Mill and the weir on the Stinsford side stream but how do those relate to the amount of water flowing in the river? …

Grayling Bug

Here is a cracking grayling bug and one that fishes well in coloured water, exactly the conditions yesterday during the grayling workshop. It is based on a traditional grayling dry fly the Sturdy’s Fancy and was one of Reg Righyni’s favourite flies. I switched this to a nymph added a tungsten bead to get it …
