The weather for yesterday’s work party could not have been better, glorious warm sunshine.
A day’s work party on the delightful Affpuddle beat, a great turn out resulting in a rather productive tree trimming session covering the whole beat apart from a couple of designated sanctuary areas.
A few LDO’s hatching for the fish to eat and pasties, cake and coffee for us.
The pre season banter was of epic proportion, no doubt brought on by the superb weather and working on a stunning chalk stream, your passion for the club and its fishing gentlemen is admirable.
Massive thank you as always
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.
