See you all this weekend, 3rd and 4th of November –

Please come and say hello, we are thrilled to be exhibiting at this show.

Our stand will be promoting our fabulous chalk stream fishing and self catering holidays, along with all our fishery work.

For the show only  we are running a friendly competition – enter your email address on the stand and you will be entered into a draw with a chance of winning a day for two people on our famous Home Beat on the river Frome in Dorset.

Also grab an edible squirmy when passing….

Thank you for stopping by at the European Sport Fishing Show last weekend, chatting and entering our prize draw.

Congratulations to the winner – Mr Mike Renolds 🙂 Mike can you please make contact so we can arrange for your day on the Frome –

Pictures tell a thousand stories…

The foul winter weather meant a rather slow start to our year, but we are catching up, to say the least… Seriously busy all over southern England with a great variety of water and fish related contracts and as always a massive thank you to all involved 🙂
