Chalkstream dreams……

One of the greatest rewards you can ever get from fishing is listening to another anglers fishing story, just look at their grin, the excitement, a piscatorial Christmas morning any day of the year, that’s what we call “Chalkstream Dreams”…….

The Frome is so low, Libs asked if it was going to “run out of water” and so clear, seriously hard fishing, seriously hard, blend in, vanish into the background, you need to be totally invisible… Sit and observe, watch, don’t move, then after two hours or longer that chosen fish drops back, you dare not breathe, blink, let alone cast a fly, heart pounding…. a glimpse of white, a slight head shake …fish on…. 

These guys who fished here today were great, away from the Wandle brook in London, nice guys, passionate about chalkstreams, and sharing those stories, those great fishing stories… They came to the FROME and caught a few wild fish…….

Oh what a fish a truely wild fish, and then they went on to get another, and a monster Grayling…… they come to those who wait……

Seriously happy days….  Two very different wild fish caught on our home beat……..
