First day tomorrow!

I have to say we have just had one of the most amazing Grayling winters, the fishing was tough, seriously tough, but massively rewarding for those who fished hard… And boy did we have fun….

The Chalkstream Club was fantastic over the winter, great socials, great speakers, and lots of lovely people….

So tomorrow brings yet another first day of the Trout season, each one more exciting, this one is my 48th, and still I will struggle to sleep tonight… 🙂

New Rod Licence purchased –

Day tickets available on the famous DFC water-

We have had a great winter for working on the River, all our beats look stunning and are ready to go –

The Little Syndicate is full and excited about this stunning little Trout Stream….

DFC lower water and various other beats mown, I have been promising the Frome a new mower for the last fifteen years, so if the fishing is tough please bring your Croquet kit….

Please follow us on Twitter and Facebook and have a seriously great season… 🙂

Now to sort out a Fly Rod….

River Frome day tickets from £50.00

I have to say that some of the finest fly fishing to be found on the Dorset Frome is on the famous Dorchester Fishing Club  water. Seven miles of stunning Chalk Stream fly fishing for only £50.00 per day (day tickets available on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and bank holidays), but you will need to book rather quickly as there only 45 day tickets available… The club does retain the fishing for members only between the 15th May and the 15th June, so please e mail me asap to book your day

Grayling spawning video

Eclipse and spawning Grayling

Just the most amazing morning… A spectacular solar eclipse, followed by filming and photographing huge Frome Grayling spawning in great light conditions, what a great way to spend my birthday… 🙂

Spawning Grayling

It is a seriously magic moment in the chalk stream calendar, watching Grayling spawning… I tried this afternoon to film these stunning BIG fish, tricky in hazy sunlight , fingers crossed for tomorrow….
