Mayfly Magic

Another special day out on the Frome looking at projects with the Westcountry Rivers Trust, chatting to anglers on various beats, river work tomorrow and a fish rescue on Friday….


Well Angled….

Well angled that man, a cracking wild fish from an equally wild place, smiles all round……..


A lovely testimonial

“If you crave a glimpse of how fishing might have been: savour an unhurried tranquil and unspoilt slice of southern fishing in an ever frantic world, then we positively urge that you sample what the Frome has to offer. It is unique in every way. From the water meadows, to the wildlife, to the river and the rising trout and shadowy grayling. This place is “special”and “haunting” beyond words.”

The Gardeners Beat

The Gardeners Beat looked at its finest earlier this evening, Mayfly hatching and spinners in the air by the thousands….. To book a day…

Mayfly Season

April was really a month of cold wet weather, little in the way of fly life and angling reports, but the more than welcome rain has left the River Frome looking at her very best for the Mayfly season.

With stunning mornings and warm days over this next week or so the fishing will be spectacular, the fish are already being caught on various Mayfly patterns and the hatch is gathering strength as the days warm, there has also been some good hatches of Large Dark Olives.

We have seen good numbers of wild Trout being caught on our beats including several fish approaching the three pound mark.

So come along to Dorset and sample some stunning fishing on this delightful Chalk Stream.
