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 ūüôā

Dorchester Fishing Club

With the Trout season less than three weeks away, I just have to remind you all that we are again selling the day tickets for this amazing fishery, a number of trout (wild trout) over the magical 4 lbs were caught last season, I need say no more other than give me a call…

Seven miles of fishing, day tickets just £50.00

A couple of winter shots to wet your appetite for the coming spring, take a look at the clubs website – www.grhe.co.uk

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 РLower 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 РWatery Beats  (SY 76750 91285) Wild Brown Trout and Grayling

This is a carrier, locally known as the ‚ÄúNorth Stream‚ÄĚ 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 РIlsington 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.

Autumn

Possibly one of the finest times of the year… Strutting the water meadows at first light…

Drowners Hut

Not sure if you saw this little piece in the echo a few weeks ago… ¬†We laid on a lovely guided river walk for a group and this appeared a few days later ūüôā
