THE STORY OF THE BLANDFORD FLY.

Don’t just take our word for it, ask any fisherman and they’ll attest – it’s not only the trickle of trout that bites on the tranquil River Stour at Blandford.

Should you wade these waters on a warm summer’s night, beware the infamous Blandford Fly, whose bothersome bite can only be soothed with a spicy slice of fresh ginger.

Did you know?

The ferocious, blood sucking Blandford Fly would give Dracula a run for his money. It gets its name from our hometown, Blandford Forum, after 600 people visited their doctors here to be treated for the insect bite in a four-week period in 1972.
