Flyfishing & Flytying – April

We are in this months edition of Flyfishing & Flytying, a wonderful article on the history of our Club, written by Dominic Garnett.

Dorchester Fishing Club

We spent a very chilly but enjoyable day in January with Dominic. We talked about the history of the Club and how we collaborate with other organisations to improve our fishery, for both flora & fauna. Click to read more on the Club’s History

It is also the Club’s 140th anniversary this year and I do hear rumour of a few plans to celebrate it – more to follow……..

More Fencing

Were out again today, but although depleted in numbers still managed to move and re-wire about 40 posts, about 20 of which were renewed. It was hard graft as all the posts had to be hand carried from Whitfield hatches about half a mile upstream – this was necessary as John’s truck was bogged down axle deep requiring a shove out by the team as job #1.

John’s chariot safely un-bogged, the team set to work. The banter came thick and fast but the jokes are still awful. Excellent coffee break [thanks Brian] picnic lunch [thanks John] and even fortified with mulled wine. My word these guys know how to do it!

As you can see from the pictures, the work was tackled cheerily and with a sense of stile (!).

Membership Complete for 2017

Membership is complete and Membership card etc. will be in the post by the end of the week.

Grayling season over (see Doug’s report on his last trip of the season), it will be soon April 1st and already a few grannom have been spotted!

————————————————————————————————–

Just a quick trip to the river at the weekend, with only the one fish, so my last fish of the old season and first fish of 2017 was a hard fighting 40cm grayling, no complaints about that. I did lose another of similar size. Water was a good height and pretty clear, so fish went for a small PTN.

All the best
Doug
