Salmon Syndicate places

Paul Bullimore runs a rather fine Salmon and Sea Trout syndicate on the river Frome here in Dorset.

Syndicate places can be tricky to get, but Paul is looking for two rods to join him on the Frome..    Pauls contact details here

“The Lower Frome has a well known track record of producing big fish, not only the huge Grayling the river is now famous for but also huge Sea Trout and Salmon. Historically the river had a massive average size of Salmon with 30lb fish being common and several 40lb fish being caught each season. Although these huge multi sea winter fish have all but vanished there are still big fish in the upper 20’s being landed and lost each year. The majority of the fish caught in recent times are 2sw fish of between 10 and 16lb with a fair numbers of bigger fish and a few grilse as well”.
