Rods down - the fly anglers are sitting in the club room having lunch, lots of beautiful hard fighting trout caught this morning ... all in aid of charity - lunch a few glasses of wine and they will set off for the afternoons activities, now will that be more fishing or sitting in the shade of a tree having a snooze, time will tell #flyfishing#troutfishing#charityevent#dunctonmill#troutfishery#fishery#southdowns
A throwback to working with the @wildtrouttrust team Andy and Ed. Assisting us with some work on the #riverblackwater. We removed an old concrete brick weir which was impounding flows, and replaced is with some #largewoodydebris to energize the flow instead. We also had some assistance from the Blackwater Restoration Group of volunteers in building a brushwood shelf to protect the bank which has seriously eroded this winter.
Unfortunately the river banks are plagued by #himalayanbalsam and as such the bank structure isn't what is should be in places.
Thanks to Andy, Ed, the Wild Trout Trust in general and also the volunteers. Your assistance is greatly appreciated in kick starting the regeneration of our section of the river.
