Kind Words about the Frome

Hi John,

Was a pleasure to meet you on Monday – thanks again for a great day out. Have attached below some pictures of the bigger fish, also just gave these and a catch return to the Westcountry Rivers Trust. Still glowing from my first 3lb grayling, have dreamed of one for years! And what a beautiful beat, great to see wild fish of all species and sizes in a natural setting. I’ve flyfished in the Westcountry for over 10 years but strangely this was my first day on an English chalkstream. I was always put off before by the idea of paying exorbitant fees for an overmanaged beat and stocked fish. Not so here – think you’ve done a great job, enhancing the riverbanks and working with nature rather than over-managing or interfering by farming or controlling fish. Hope to visit again soon for some Winter grayling fishing!

Best wishes, Ben
