Checked out the river and it had cleared a little since yesterday; So back home to dig a few worms from the compost and I was soon parking up at Long Bridge.
River is still very full and has a good flow on it, but just clear enough to catch a grayling. I tried above and in the weir at Loud’s Mill; down to Dead Man’s, but I didn’t get a touch and I didn’t see any salmon attempting Loud’s Mill weir – But I did have a kingfisher land on a branch only a rod length away, he bobbed his head a couple of times and was away…..
Weather forecast is for even more storms tomorrow!
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.
