A great work party on the clubs river Piddle beat on Saturday morning, clearing a couple of very large trees at the bottom of the Mill arm, a stunning stretch with some surprisingly large wild fish. The winter work party dates will be posted over the next few days.
A lovely Autumnal day and a chance to fish the Upper water, also to see all the work the River Keeper has been doing. He is working with the Dorset Wildlife Trust on this enhancement work project. He and his team have been busily installing new willow islands and flow deflectors. I only viewed those …
We are pleased to beginning the enhancement work below Gasgoyne Bridge on Thursday this week if anybody would like to come out and lend a hand it should be great fun, 8.30 start.
