The amazing weather continues and still no sign of any meaningful rain…. But perfect for the first trip of the season….
Arrived around 10am and there was fly already in the air and small trout rising in the margins. It wasn’t long before a 10″ brown sucked in the GRHE as it floated downstream. This continued until I was joined by the usual 1st April gang for a good natter.. But the rising fish was too much and good few trout came to the fly over the next couple of hours.. A great 1st April trip, now please start raining ASAP!!
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.
