Dorset County Show

It was very muddy three days work. Thanks for all those that helped – especially John & Elliot for all their hard work and without them the show wouldn’t have gone on!

The MUD!

Many thanks to John Pritchard (brother of Doug) for producing the artwork for a new Club sign… http://www.indigocoms.com/

The Sign’s Have Been Made

The Club has been offered a stand at this years Dorset County Show on 1st & 2nd September. We will be part of the country sports area, promoting the Club’s 130 year association with the River Frome.

We can show pictures of all our work improving the habitat, history of the Club, fly tying & casting demonstrations, plus river life (ie. bugs & beasties!) etc.

We have ideas, we have a date and now we need a few volunteers! Please help if you can; you don’t have to be an expert fly tier or entomologist to help.

This is a chance to show the public that fishermen do not just catch fish, but also care and nurture the rivers that they fish.
