Just to make up for Captain's shocking photography here is a selection N.B. the trout was caught in early September:

Not the biggest grayling in the world, but a very pretty one (size 21 chartreuse brassie) of several from the same shoal last week.

A big September Grayling from the same beat as above

Fat September trout Cadbury/Bassett's area:

If you want to fish these sections - get in contact with myself, Captain or John Blewitt (blackgnat@blueyonder.co.uk) and join SPRITE (it is free!). You can then get guided fishing visits in return for picking up the odd plastic bag or old furniture!

If you do fish down there; barbless hooks only and Catch and Release only. This wild fishery cannot sustain catch and kill angling.

A miraculous transformation from what I remember chaps, congratulations. When do the seasons for trout and grayling start and finish though?

Grayling season is the same as for coarse fishing I believe? And for Browns its October to end of March me thinks??.. At the moment Grayling are giving themselves up in certain areas and even though 'targetting' Grayling, the odd Brown turns up unexpectedly but providing they (along with the ladies) are returned properly.. no harm done eh?... Barbless hooks as Paul says... and the offer of free guided sessions too for helping with the clean-up and joining Sprite... No sneaking ha ha!

Nice pics. I think John B was saying the next clean up event is next Sunday (15th Nov) see Paul's email for contact details.

Fishing seasons in S. Yorkshire: Brown trout 25th March to end of September (not Oct); Grayling 16 June to end of Feb.

Nice one Will - it isn't ever that easy to track down the local byelaws about fishing seasons (often difficult to get at via the E.A. in some cases!).

Cleanup dates schedule here:

To all the guys at the BFFI who showed an interest in joining the free angling club, please feel free to contact John Blewitt on blackgnat@blueyonder.co.uk and to see the website (homepage from link above) for further details of SPRITE.

Last weekend's cleanup:

Big respect to all who turned out (especially visitors from Doncaster and Chesterfield). Hopefully John's curry warmed everyone up after we'd done with our couple of hours cleaning.

Two hours and a full skip

Steve with some "slight seconds" ladies' underwear (found alongside a pile of stella cans, vodka bottle and.......marigold gloves of course)

All you need for a night on the pull in Sheffield Well done to all.
10 days = 10 skips = a hell of difference to the Don
Keep up the good work and you can invite me for fish next season
