The forecast for today would appear to be sunny and warm ! A lot of the colour has dropped out of the river making way for a good weekend of fishing. I would therefore suggest that we all make the most of it as there are only about four weeks left!
One of our rods lost a rather fine deer horn “priest” back in the summer, which was kindly handed in by the swan herding folk. I can’t remember who this belonged to. Any clues, please call (John on 01305 257490) .
A date for your dairies. A work party on the willow at the Withy Bed under Poundbury – 9.00am Friday 7th November “please bring waders” …..
Will Bown kindly sent me this picture of a fine fish he caught a few weeks ago. As is the case with a lot of anglers, it has been a while since last visiting the river due to the weather. If you have any tales or pictures to share with us, please send me an e mail.
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.
