Dear Members – Another whole week of work parties.
We have decided to have another full, hands on week cutting back the willow that has gone rather mad over the last few years, encroaching on some of our great fishing and hopefully by letting in some more light we can encourage the Ranunculus to return.
The club will again be employing my work mate Kevin Ackerman, who many of you know, for a few days to help out, we also have the help of a great lad from Sparsholt college.
The big ask… Could we have as many hands as possible to help with dragging, stacking and keeping those fires going, talking fishing and eating ginger cake.
Willow week – Monday the 21st October to Friday the 25th October.
Monday 21st – 9am meet at Poundbury lay-by.
Tuesday 22nd – 9am meet at Poundbury lay-by.
Wednesday 23rd – 9am meet at Poundbury lay-by.
Thursday 24th – 9am meet at Poundbury lay-by.
Friday 25th – 9am meet at the Lower water.
Seriously looking forward to the week and fingers crossed for low water levels.
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.
