I have been mulling over the idea of a Last Cast Supper in October to coincide with the end of the season and well away from the Christmas period. The supper will be open to all club members and attendees of the Chalkstream meetings.
When I mentioned this to our esteemed Chairman and John Aplin, they both thought it to be a good idea.
The concept is a plated meal catered for us by the Wise Man and held at West Stafford Village Hall.
We have provisionally booked Saturday 12th October and would welcome any responses from yourselves. This date could possibly coincide with members from away joining us and having a last cast of the season. Prices for the meal and arrangements for a bar, if necessary, are still in the pipeline.
Your comments would be appreciated and my email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. Further details will be announced in due course depending on uptake.
Thanks to all
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.

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.
