Frome Grayling

Over the years there has been more British record Grayling caught and written about from the Frome than any other UK river…….Fact.

A lovely fish for Stuart.

Another fact, is you folks are the ones still able to fish this fabulous river, not only for the Grayling but also for its stunning Brown Trout.

Robin said “it was a little chilly the other day”

We have another month of Grayling fishing left, and the water conditions have been in favour of those of you who like to Nymph, several good fish have been caught on the fly over this cold crisp winter.

Some news that I know will please you all, we have counted 44 Salmon Redds up stream of the new fish pass at Louds Mill.

Those Temperatures


I managed to get down to the river on Saturday 10 Jan. I couldn’t resist having a go, although I wasn’t sure how long I would last in those temperatures. It was already about 2.00pm and my first cast with heavy nymph to the far bank produced a grayling of about 14 inches. Within a short time, I’d had 5 more, and a beautifully conditioned rainbow too. It’s amazing how a fish on the end of the line warms you up!

The grand opening

Today was the official opening of the Loud’s Mill fish pass, we all met at the Environment Agency’s depot in St. Georges Road.

Andy Martin (EA) started proceedings, then our very own Charles Dutton gave an overview of how the fish pass came to be, quickly followed by Paul Knight (Salmon & Trout Association), Tony Andrews (Atlantic Salmon Trust), Richard Slocock (Frome & Piddle Association) and Oliver Letwin MP opened the fish pass.

We all then walked to see the fish pass in action – a super day and congratulations (again) to all involved in this project – a good job well done….

Beautiful brownie

(Report from last season)

Dear John,

Thanks a lot for your help! :)Thanks to your tips I had a great day:). I had three fine fish over 40cm and a few smaller ones! Two brownies and one grayling. Beautiful brownie 42 cm long. 🙂 Really thanks A LOT to you:). I met some fly fishermen and one of them was very kind and he took some pictures of me, but unfortunately my camera has broken and the pictures had to go to rubbish. ((((( Anyway I am sending it to you because I need to show off with my trophy:)))))))
