Salmon Fishing


We have a “House Ticket” for Salmon and Sea Trout fishing on the lower Piddle for use of our visiting guests.

Today we headed down for a good look round, lots of seriously fishy water, plenty of Browns and a couple of small Sea Trout chasing our flies, oh and a little jack Pike… Salmon soon we hope….

Harry Wallace Flies

Flies tied by Harry Wallace

Harry Wallace has tied flies and fished all his life and luckily has ended up living and fishing here in Dorset.

Harry spent eight years  working as a Fly Fishing Guide and fly tyer in Connecticut in the USA before moving back to the UK.

We have carefully selected some seriously successful patterns that Harry has adapted for our Dorset Chalk Streams, we have caught wild Brown Trout to over 5 pounds and Grayling to 3lb 14oz using these flies.

We now keep a selection of Harrys flies in stock at the “Dairy House” and are available for purchase at a charge of £1.20

20 pence from every fly sold will be donated to the in Dorchester.
