Work Party Cancelled

As a result of the past few weeks rain the ground water is at such a level that it is both un safe and not possible to work in the main river, we have achieved a great deal on the various carriers and Piddle beats and I massively thank all who have helped and worked …

Autumn Tidy Up

Well another season that rather flew by… Now that the mowing and strimming season is over and done with it is nice to get on with some autumnal projects, surprised by the amount of heavy rain over the last few weeks we have had to juggle our days around rising rivers, luckily with the help …

Working Parties – October 2019

Middle Water

Dear Members – Another whole week of work parties. We have decided to have another full, hands on week cutting back the willow that has gone rather mad over the last few years, encroaching on some of our great fishing and hopefully by letting in some more light we can encourage the Ranunculus to return. …

Something to round up the week 🙂 After a seriously long dry spell we arrived on the Monday morning for the first day of a week of work parties to find a rather coloured and rising river, this has been the course for all of the week, tweaking days to safely fit in with water …
