Wessex Chalk Streams Syndicate Opportunity 2013:

There are a few vacancies for the 2013 season. For £525/year (+ a minimum donation of £5 to the Frome, Piddle Fishery Association) membership allows you to explore 12 beats on the Rivers Frome, Piddle, Hooke and Bride.

The fishing is mainly for brown trout (wild and stocked) but there are some splendid grayling and the occasional salmon and sea trout in the lower beats of the Frome. The waters vary from small, challenging brooks and sidestreams through to a very decent width and flow on the lower Frome – something for everyone!

Please contact us quickly to avoid disappointment; however if you miss out on the syndicate opportunity do check out our day ticket selection.

We have been running our fishing business since the early 80’s, we still have customers from those early days coming back every year.
