Ford and stream restoration

After a great first day filming and working on this part of the Frome we went on for another couple of days adding LWD, re-profiling the river bed and repairing the damaged ford crossing.

Great working with the Dorset Wildlife Trust, you may like to get involved with their fantastic work http://www.dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk/crayfishappeal.html

Here are a few more pictures of this great little project, oh and a huge thank you to Sarah (DWT) Elliot and Kevin (www.casterbridgefisheries.co.uk) for all your hard work.

Watery Beat

Earlier today I was guiding our fishing guest Brian on our  “Watery Beat” and dare I say it we could do with a splash of rain, just to freshen things up a little, we saw lots of Grayling but they were a little spooky… this beat is only £10 per day, purely to give people the chance of an introduction to chalk stream fishing at a stupidly low price…http://www.chalkstreamflyfishing.co.uk/chalkstream-fly-fishing/
