Casterbridge Fisheries Ltd

August seems to have been another rather busy month (like every other)… Our delightful self catering Annexe www.chalkstreamflyfishing.co.uk is full and bookings are flying in for next year, great, you had better get booking guys if you want to holiday and fish here in the Frome Valley…

Also seriously busy with our keepering on the Frome, and various other water based contracts www.casterbridgefisheries.co.uk… Not forgetting a little voluntary work helping the River Lab gang tagging Salmon Parr today….   Love it….  Not forgetting the link to the famous www.grhe.co.uk

Dorchester Fishing Club

I cannot believe we are rapidly approaching the end of August… I think I can confidently say it has been a good season so far judging by the feed back from our members….

Rather hot and humid this week, but still the work continues….  A massive thank you to Kevin for all his hard work…

Jurassic coast Carp rescue

Dorset is simply stunning, and to spend a day netting Carp with views along the world famous “Jurassic Coast” was magical….

All the carp were removed and safely re homed to make way for Great Crested Newts on one of the DWT nature reserves.

A huge thank you to team Casterbridge Fisheries and all the DWT volunteers!

Barn Owl

I was out late last night working on our little carrier, not only where there lots of Trout rising but this rather magnificent Barn Owl was hunting over the water meadows.
