High Hall Syndicate

A rather rare opportunity has come up for two rods on the delightful “High Hall Syndicate” on the river Allen near Wimborne, I need say no more…

If you are interested please contact Nigel McCorkell –   nigel.mccorkell21@btinternet.com

 

Bhompston Beat 2018

There are a couple of spare slots on the Bhompston beat on the Frome just downstream of Dorchester for anyone who is interested. Subscription is £230 for the season (1st April – 30th September) for one named day a week. Please contact –  Geoffrey Edwardes gedwardes@aol.com

Kingston Mauward College

Brilliant working with a great bunch of students and their lecturer Neil Wilson as part of their wetland management course.

We picked out a site and the students carried out a detailed pre works survey of both the upstream and downstream limits, then we looked at clearing the channel, letting in light, leaving lots of LWD and creating much variation of habitat both in-stream and on the banks.

We will all be surveying the site over the coming year to hopefully see an improvement in both the flora and fauna.

Little Syndicate Rods for 2018

Hi Folks I am looking for a handful of nice fly anglers to fill up our “Little Syndicate” for this year.

The Little Syndicate 2018 – NOW FULL FOR 2018

The Little Syndicate will be limited to twenty anglers this 2018 season, each paying an annual subscription of £200.00, due in January, which allows unlimited fishing on all of the Little Syndicate’s rather lovely waters.

Four lovely beats on three very different little rivers, a year’s fishing including fabulous Mayfly hatches and winter Grayling fishing.

Brown Trout fishing 1st April to 15th October
Grayling fishing 16th June to 14th March

 

River Frome – Lower Wraxall Brook 

*New beat from 2017  (ST 57705 00859)  Wild Brown Trout 

The Little syndicate has exclusive use of a mile of the Wraxall Brook, which is a small tributary of the River Frome in the depths of this beautiful county. This is true Lilliput fishing for stunning wild brown trout amongst its tiny riffles, fallen trees, pocket water and larger pools which makes it ideal for ultra-light tackle, even Tenkara.

River Frome – Watery Beats  (SY 76750 91285) Wild Brown Trout and Grayling

This is a carrier, locally known as the “North Stream” only a couple of miles downstream of our Dairy House in West Stafford near Tincleton.

We have the true left bank upstream of the bridge for two fields and the true left bank downstream of the lane for one field, a total of just under half a mile of wild fishing.

You will need to wade these beats and it is ideal for a few hours fishing in search of a large Grayling or a wild Brown Trout. (I do let a very occasional house ticket)

River Piddle – Ilsington Park 

*New beat from 2017  (SY 75795 94570) Wild Brown Trout 

On the upper Piddle, another one of Dorset’s stunning chalk streams, at Puddletown, behind old metal gates and a walled garden, flowing through stunning parkland, about 850 m of fishing on the true right bank.

The Dairy House Carrier  (SY 73366 90195)  Wild Brown Trout and Grayling

This is another classic piece of wild Chalk Stream fishing, a field away from our famous “Home Beat” another half a mile of fishing, Grayling and Trout..  We do have the occasional house guest on this beat.

This will also allow you one day on our “Home Beat” to suit… Wild Brown Trout and Grayling 

This is a rather special syndicate with lovely people passionate about their wild fishing…  We also have at least one work party on our beats, a great way to meet other members and to learn a little bit about “River Keeping”.

During the 2017 season several Grayling over the magical 3lb were caught along with a rather special Brown Trout of over 4lbs.
