An amazing length of the Upper Water has been trimmed back with the help of John Aplin, Kevin Ackerman and big thanks to Colin Hawkins who came along with his slew to help remove the larger trees. Also thanks to all the Members that have been out helping with the work.
Still three more days work to do, so please do come along if you can – tomorrow we are meeting at 9am Whitfield Hatches.
PS> If you are unable to physically help, please still come along and give moral support to everyone.
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.
