The Wild Trout Trust have announced their annual charity Auction, their most important annual fundraising event. They have some really exciting fishing adventures on offer this year, including an expedition to a secret salmon river in Argyll, a wild trout safari on three Norfolk chalk streams with Nick Zoll, fishing on exclusive private beats of the Test, Itchen and Avon, and urban river adventures with guides like Phillippa Hake and Damon Valentine. There’s also artwork by Sam MacDonald, hand-crafted fibreglass rods, special sets of flies from tyers like Lee Evans and Dave Southall, and books signed by their authors (including ‘Silver Shoals’ by the Trust’s former president, Charles Rangeley-Wilson). A new section of the Auction also contains a selection of once-in-a-lifetime destination trips, whose donors have kindly pledged a percentage of each one sold to the Wild Trout Trust.
There are 300 lots with prices starting from £20, so this is a great opportunity for anglers to support the WTT’s work to make a better world for our rivers, lakes and their wildlife, including our native trout.
The auction catalogue is available on the Wild Trout Trust’s website , with the auction running on eBay and by post from 8thto 17thMarch 2019. For more information you can also follow #WTTseasonofadventures on Twitter, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 023 9257 0985.
