Tracking Grayling


We all know the Frome Grayling are more than a little bit special…. The length some people go to trying to discover where the biggest ones live is quiet amazing……


South West Region Freshwater Forum

Pike Flies…

Please dont eat me..

I missed a savage take, John G had a cracking fish on , only for it to throw the fly out and Clive bagged a couple of cracking Grayling… the new flies looking scared… please don’t eat me…



Christmas Meeting 20th December

The Dorset Chalk Stream Club will have its Christmas  social gathering at West Stafford Village Hall on Friday the 20th December starting promptly at 7.00pm

Please bring a plate of food to pop on the buffet table and  bottle of your favourite tipple, or grab a drink  from the Wise Man.

Our “Home Beat” will be open (FREE) for the club during the day if you fancy casting a fly at a Grayling or just pop in for a walk.. Please ping me an e-mail to let me know you are coming.

 A very busy evening, great speakers covering a variety of fascinating topics.



The usual second-hand tackle table, also there will be lots of second-hand  fly tying kit on sale to raise a pound or two for the DFC

Large selection of fly fishing & fly tying books donated by a rather fine chef – all money raised will be donated the Dorset Wildlife Trust

Harry Wallace will be selling a great selection of Dry flies and a selection of his new Grayling patterns.

I will be keeping a selection of Harry’s flies at home for the rest of this season, so if you need any please give me a ring. 01305 257490

Open to all folk  with a passion for our chalk streams and fly fishing…

Please spread the word…


Chalk Stream Club Christmas Gathering

Good evening

Firstly a huge thanks to all of you who came to the last gathering and helped out… A great evening!

I have just booked the West Stafford village hall for our Xmas bash – FRIDAY 20th DECEMBER 7.00pm – I have had conformation back from our speakers, and you all said that the evening should involve food again…

(There could even be a little Grayling fishing laid on during the day if anyone is interested) Looking like another fine evening….

I will put the program together in the next day or so, e mail it out and get John G to add it to the website.

Please spread the word folks….
