Catch of the day

From fly fishing on the River Frome to trout fishing on the lakes at Flowers Farm.


We are fortunate at Summer Lodge to have both fantastic fly fishing and terrific trout fishing on our doorstep, set amongst the beautiful countryside of Dorset. Suitable for beginners and competent fishermen alike, we can tailor your half day or full day experience to suit your ability.

Fly fishing

Wrackleford offers some four miles of Dry Fly Fishing on the River Frome, divided into individual fishing beats, most with their own small fishing hut. Each fishing boat is rented by the day and we can now provide complete fishing equipment, from rods and waders to flies and leader, and given a little notice we can offer a fully guided day with instruction. The possibility exists for individual fishing on the river, or for organised groups of up to 12 who specifically come for fishing.
