The last of the winters work parties, a good turnout for some gentle fencing work on the upper water, a bonfire to clear up the remainder of the cut willow and a celebratory pasty and doughnut.
A huge thank you to all who turned out to help over the last few months, we have achieved a huge amount on the clubs beats, may all your nets be graced with huge brown trout this season.
PS – This seasons Membership Cards, March Newsletter etc. are in the post to you all Cheers John Grindle
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.
