Chalkstream Fly Fishing

We now have the use of some of the best and delightful beats here in Dorset. You can fish our tiny waters of the Upper Frome and catch magnificent wild brown trout. Our Middle Frome beats have a fantastic head of free rising wild brown trout and is the land of the River Frome record grayling. On the Lower Frome & Piddle beats you can match your skills against the majestic salmon & large sea trout that inhabit these waters.

We are rather excited to be now running the “Bhompston Fly Fishers”, a rather lovely syndicate on the Frome a short cast down stream of Lower Bockhampton bridge, set deep in Thomas Hardy country…

Dorchester Fishing Club – River Frome

Casterbridge Fisheries is honoured to sell day tickets to fly fish the waters of the Dorchester Fishing Club on the River Frome, some stunning fishing, and I am very proud to have been the “River Keeper” on this fishing since 1994.

Five lovely beats on four very different little rivers, a year’s fishing including fabulous Mayfly hatches and winter Grayling fishing.

Not truly known as a chalkstream, but it is the home to a handful of rather special totally wild brown trout, in totally wild surroundings.

Deer Park Fly Fishing Syndicate

The river Otter at the Deer Park Country House in Devon is a wonderful stretch of some 3 miles of really diverse water making it an ideal venue to explore with various styles of fly fishing. The various beats have all types of water throughout its length from shallow riffles through to deep, slow glides and everything in between.

Winter Grayling Fishing – River Frome

The fame of the River Frome Grayling needs no great introduction.Other than possibly a quick reminder that this stunning chalkstream has produced more than its fair share of British rod caught records, the last of which was caught on a nymph while sight fishing in crystal clear water.
