Fellow club members may have seen an article in Trout and Salmon Magazine entitled ” Fishing for Forces”. The aim of the article is to provide fishing for those returning from Operational Duty.
After reading the article I decided that I would donate one of my member`s day tickets to the project and I wondered if any other members would like to do the same.
Fishing would be on a one to one basis possibly with novice fishers using members own equipment or participants bringing their own.
I have been in contact with Christopher Robinson at Roxtons who is liaising with the Services Personnel Branches and members can contact him directly on 01488689701, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or Fishing for Forces c/o Roxtons 25 High St Hungerford Berkshire RG17 0NF.
If, however, members would rather contact me, I will compile a list of offers and forward them.
I can be contacted on 01305832668 , mobile 07771801194 or e-mail email@example.com.
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.
Day Tickets are only available during the trout season and only on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays & Bank Holidays. (season 1st April – 14th October)
The Police have made it quite clear that poaching is a crime in progress covered by the 1968 Theft Act. Members should always call 999 to report it and not phone the keeper. Without a report the police will not be aware of the extent of a problem.
If possible note or photo vehicles.

Angling’s representative body, the Angling Trust, has a web site for anglers to record sightings of cormorants, goosanders and mergansers throughout the UK: www.cormorantwatch.com The site is easy to use and will gather vital data to help persuade government of the need for action to protect fisheries.
Invasive plants and animals can carry diseases that kill fish, block waterways and banks, interfering with fishing. They can be small and hard to spot, so are easily spread on damp clothing and equipment.
Protect the environment and fishing you enjoy, by keeping your kit free of invasive plants and animals.
