Just back from a splendid evenings fishing, plenty of mayfly and rising fish. My guest who I shared a rod with found a rather nice net along the bank under Poundbury, so if you have lost one please get in touch with me 07535 889171.. (owner of net found)
A fat escapee rainbow I caught on Sunday!!!!
The Honorary Secretary has also been out enjoying the mayfly:
I have completely indulged myself this weekend, with some of the best mayfly fishing I can remember. Not spectacular rises with fish all over the place, but lots of wandering and watching has found me some really good fish. These two are probably the best of them, both well over 2lbs and classic Frome fish. However the one I lost in the bushes yesterday morning would have trumped them quite easily.
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.
