Looking through rather a lot of old photos earlier and I came across this one of me fishing at the age of 14 in the bridge pool for Grayling in the winter of 1981… Under the watchful eyes of my dear father and the late Brigadier Floyer Acland… Now our family home, The Dairy House and famous “Home Beat”
We are an established company, specialising in all aspects of water, fishing and fishery management.

Below is my informal blog, keeping you updated with anything that might be of interest..... "Enjoy"
August seems to have been another rather busy month (like every other)… Our delightful self catering Annexe www.chalkstreamflyfishing.co.uk is full and bookings are flying in for next year, great, you had better get booking guys if you want to holiday and fish here in the Frome Valley…
Also seriously busy with our keepering on the Frome, and various other water based contracts www.casterbridgefisheries.co.uk… Not forgetting a little voluntary work helping the River Lab gang tagging Salmon Parr today…. Love it…. Not forgetting the link to the famous www.grhe.co.uk
Dorset is simply stunning, and to spend a day netting Carp with views along the world famous “Jurassic Coast” was magical….
All the carp were removed and safely re homed to make way for Great Crested Newts on one of the DWT nature reserves.
A huge thank you to team Casterbridge Fisheries and all the DWT volunteers!
