"You don't get jobs like this in heaven"

Hello, my name is Mark and I am a River Keeper on the River Frome in Dorset, England. The Frome is a beautiful wild chalk stream which has a run of salmon and sea-trout. It also contains several kinds of coarse fish including grayling and some specimen fish have been caught on this fine river.

I am privileged to look after this stretch of the Frome. In the words of a former River-Keeper “You don’t get jobs like this in heaven” and I have to agree.

We offer a various selection of fishing collectibles from makers such as Hardy Bros, Farlows, Malloch, Allcocks and Slater. We are always looking to buy or exchange rods, reels and accessories such as rods made by Edward Barder, Oliver’s of Knebworth, Bruce and Walker, B. James, Pezon et Michel, Brunner, Orvis etc..
