Fishing !

Following an amazing night at the Chalkstream Club, Glen Pointon (living the dream fly fishing blog,  team wychwood game rivers, Haddon estate Wye fly fishing guide), Phil Ratcliffe (GAIA, FFF, pro guide), Scott Webster (big game stalker), Mark Brando (river/game keeper) and Tim Roberts (Islay Scottish Loch’s)….  As the gang were staying with us over the weekend fishing it seemed rather obvious that they should sample some of our Frome valley hospitality…

A huge thank you to John Grindle, Richard Miller and Trev Stroud for spending Saturday fishing with three of the guy’s on the DFC water, they simply loved the fishing and of course your company….

They had an amazing couple of days fishing on various “Frome” beats…  I think the smile on Henry’s face sums it all up nicely…

I have grabbed a few pictures from the weekend, Glen I know is writing a blog  and I will include a link to that later when it is published…  A credit to Glen for some great pictures…  Here it is….  https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1144435214

Home Beat works

Our works on the “Home Beat” came to a halt at the end of last month but will continue next year, we are always mindful of any spawning fish, I feel any spawning will be a little later this winter, once we have some rain to bring those lovely Sea Trout and Salmon up, these upper Frome beats are a mecca for spawning fish, for all the catchments native species….

A lifetime of work here in the Frome valley, doing our bit, giving nature a helping hand, building homes for our wild fish….
