Tup’s Indispensable

The weather was quite pleasant for my last couple of hours of the season today. No wind, mild, a bit of sunshine, and some nice autumn colours. Four grayling from a single shoal were keen to take my little dry fly – the best making just over two pounds. A bit further up I noticed that a hatch of pale wateries was underway in a patch of sunlight, and what looked like a decent trout close under the bank was quietly making the most of them. My Tup’s Indispensable was grabbed without hesitation. It fastened, and on the end was a lovely fish to end the season with.

Electro Fishing Survey

Here are a few photographs from yesterdays electric fishing the Lower Water to assess the fish population.

Casterbridge Fisheries Ltd. fished 100m in an upstream direction and retained every fish they caught (apart from minor species) they then measured and recorded species including all juveniles, returning them before fishing the next stretch. The results will build up a picture of the whole population including recruitment, which is very important.

Full results will be published to Members in due course, but visual results are more than encouraging – one 100m had to be shortened because of the amount of fish!!! (best brown was 50cm/20in!!!
