Pre Season Meeting

Well another great turnout for the Dorset Chalkstream Club, the Wise Man was equally as busy serving wonderful food before the meeting.

First we had Allan Frake talk on the past & present & future of Chalkstreams across the country. Plenty of thought provoking ideas: what is a true chalkstream? what are the major factors currently effecting the chalkstreams? and where are we going………………


After a short break and chance to buy more of Harry’s flies.


It was then time for Paul Bullimore, who gave an insight into his successful salmon & sea trout fishing on the lower River Frome. As the majority of those present are trout anglers, it was hugely interesting to see how Paul tackles the tricky art of extracting salmon from the River Frome – follow Paul on his blog —  chasingsalmon.blogspot.co.uk


Well that is it, the trout season is about to start so the Chalkstream Club will be on hold until the Autumn, but with the possibility of a mid summer BBQ…

I think everyone there owes a big thank you to John Aplin for organising the Club – THANKS
