After 12 years as Honorary Secretary, I have decided it’s time for me to hang up my notepad and let someone else take the reins. It has been a great honour and a privilege to serve the Club as Honorary Secretary, during which I have made many great friends and have had many great experiences, but I feel it’s time for a new kid on the block who can take the Club forward into the next era.
I’m not going totally or leaving the Club without a Secretary, I will hopefully still sit on the Managing Committee & maintain the Club’s website. So the “Club Needs You” – if you would like to put your name forward for this post, please contact myself or the Chairman!!
|From Dorchester Fishing Club|
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.

Angling’s representative body, the Angling Trust, has a web site for anglers to record sightings of cormorants, goosanders and mergansers throughout the UK: www.cormorantwatch.com The site is easy to use and will gather vital data to help persuade government of the need for action to protect fisheries.
