Well a fantastic year for all, may I as river keeper take this opportunity to wish you all a HAPPY new year, with lots and lots of fine fishing in 2008….
I drove up to Hooke fish farm earlier today and noticed that the Frome was about to burst its banks at Maiden Newton, fortunatly for Trev and his guest the flood water takes a few hours to get below Dorchester.
Caught in the rain.
A mid week bonus, I love my job……
The AGM went very well, it was good to see so many Members there and many thanks to John Aplin for another super illustrated talk on the Club’s activities.
I will be sending out the subscription reminder & minutes ASAP.
Members may fish for pike and grayling between October & February under the conditions described in rule 25. Please ALWAYS inform the Keeper when you intend to fish outside the trout season. Returns of fish caught, including dates and locations must be made to the Honorary Secretary at the end of February.
I cannot believe that the clubs AGM has come around already, its tonight, so dont forget, an action packed evening.
We managed to get our egg box installed today, but it looks like we over mended the hatch…..
Eggs going in just before Christmas.
The river is now up and very coloured, after 24 hours of fairly heavy rain.
If your going Grayling fishing you will need at least a 7 swan loafer…..
I need it to fine down in the next few days so we can install our hatchery box…
