Fly fishing at Durdle Door, and yes another blank but who cares!!!!!!!!!

Wrackle Working Party

We spent a very productive morning on the Wrackle, all of us building up a sweat on this very mild day clearing over grown willow from the north bank and in turn creating a little more fishing.Sorry no photographs as i forgot my camera!!Many thanks to Peter, Jim and Charles for your hard work.

Water Dropping

Went down this afternoon to see if any salmon were coming up over Loud’s Mill; stayed watching for 30 mins, but all I saw was a small trout trying the leap! The river is still coloured, but clear enough to fish a nymph or a worm and if we don’t get anymore significant rain I …
