Perfect weather for today’s grayling social, it may have only been a small turnout but all methods were covered. We had one long trotting, one fly fishing and one fly fishing for pike.
The grayling today preferred bait vs a deep nymph and one resident pike eagerly took a fly cast under a willow tree. Then we all enjoyed a hearty Riverkeeper chilli con-carne and fished on into the afternoon…
Please remember to contact the keeper if you do head out after grayling or pike this winter.
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.
