We now have an interactive map showing all the Club’s water. It uses Google Maps, which makes it available to your phone and can be a great help if you are locating a parking spot for the first time and whilst fishing ensuring you don’t wander outside the Club’s boundaries,..
It shows all the known parking spots, along with information/photographs about each beat.
The fishing is shown in three colours, highlighting if fishing is on both banks or just a single bank: Light Green – Both Banks: Purple – True Right Bank ONLY: Orange – True Left Bank ONLY.
The right bank or side is always on the right side of the direction in which the water is flowing ie facing downstream, and the left bank is always the left hand side facing downstream. This is usually called the ‘true’ right bank or ‘true’ left bank.
It has been checked and double checked, but if anyone spots an error then please contact me ASAP firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
