Chalk Stream Club

The Dorset Chalk Stream Club will have its March social gathering in West Stafford Village hall on Friday the 27th March 2015 starting at 7.00pm

The evening will be a totally informal celebration of the Chalk Stream Club, with the usual breaks for food and drink, alongside two rather special guests and their presentations.

Richard Battersby “A wander through Wessex looking at some of the work and priorities of the EA’s Fisheries, Biodiversity and Geomorphology (FBG) team”

For those people that don’t know me I manage a passionate team of technical experts in the EA’s FBG team at Blandford Forum. I am also a passionate conservationist and angler who is quite happy fishing for the wild trout of the West Dorset streams one day and long trotting for chalk stream roach the next. A keen amateur mycologist, butterfly nut  and chalk stream enthusiast make it pretty much the perfect job!

Then after our buffet break


Shaun Leonard Director of the Wild Trout Trust and his rather great presentation – Rough & Ready Rivers: Trout Heaven?
