Kind words from a visiting angler……

Hello John

Please accept my apologies for a very delayed response to your email.I would like to thank you for a really enjoyable days fishing on the beat at Bockhampton on 14th July – it was a really memorable day on your magical stretch of the Frome and it was a real privilege to fish this lovely stretch of river.Although the day had its challenges – a fairly persistent wind and occasional rain, I had a really brilliant day. Your advice for a 7’6″ #4 rod was spot on and although I only “landed” 3 fish (all safely returned) all on a GRHE Nymph (14), I did manage to get a number of rises to my dry fly in some of the slower pools and glimpsed a few dark monsters in various lies along the beat!I thought that you had achieved just the right balance of vegetation and access both on the banks and in the river itself and the rough areas away from the bank were a wonderful natural setting for wildlife. The fish were excellent sport, quick and feisty but not impossible to catch and a good number were evident throughout the beat.I can only say how envious I am of your members who are able to fish this beat on a regular basis – it was a real pleasure and a privilege to be able to fish this beat myself.Many thanks for a really enjoyable day – I hope I will be able to visit you again soon. Keep up the good work.

Kind regards,Kim Benniman

PS the Pub was an excellent recommendation – great lunch!
