At last some cooler weather for a fish… Arrived on the Upper Water to be greeted by the appearance of this yellow may dun, closely followed by three mayfly!! That is all I saw, but I would recommend that you start carrying a few mayfly patterns – just in case!
The wind made conditions difficult, but in the more sheltered spots there where fish feeding on the last few hatching grannom & pale wateries. Once again I caught several grayling on the dry and if your wondering which fly – it was a GRHE!
NOTE: After checking my fishing diaries, the mayfly are bang on time and the hatch will now slowly build over the coming weeks…
The Club is a private one, founded in 1877, of approximately sixty-four members and six Town Rod subscribers. The Club’s waters consist of about 12 miles of wild brown trout & grayling fishing in the main River Frome, River Cerne and River Piddle, together with attendant carriers and side streams. The waters extend both above and below the town of Dorchester and the Club employs a part-time keeper.
If you see any fishing, netting or trapping you think is illegal, please don’t tackle it yourself.
