Christmas Greetings & News Update

WTT Director, Shaun Leonard’s email to members: 

Thank you so much for your support of WTT through 2022. We were hugely touched by your generosity in our Spring auction, then when so many of you renewed your membership and now yet again with our Christmas Raffle which has just raised £11,318.

For the first time, we drew the raffle as part of a Christmas Get-Together on Zoom for members, headlined by a fabulous talk from WTT President, Jon Beer, in which he described the amazing diversity of trout across Eurasia and some of the people who’ve studied them – I’d encourage you to watch Jon’s talk on our YouTube channel.

We’ve had a really good year of work, completing lots of large, complex projects to remove big weirs, opening up many miles of river for fish, and creating lots of great habitat. As ever, I am in awe of my deeply committed colleagues and the expertise of our trustees – we go optimistically into 2023, in the hope of another cracking year.

The 2023 Spring Auction will run 17 – 26 March, our annual journal will reach you in early May, our great fun 3‑Fly fundraiser is planned for 17 June in Hampshire (see the Spring News Update) and we’re planning members’ fishing at Haddon in the summer.

I wish you well for Christmas and the New Year. Take care and stay safe.
