Generous donation from Bradford City AA
Posted on June 06, 2017
We were extremely delighted to receive a generous donation ‘to support the Wild Trout Trust in its vital work’ from Bradford City Angling Association. They recently held an Open Day on the River Aire at Gargrave which was well attended by local clubs and their members, rivers trusts and associated organisations, and even one of the WTT Vice Presidents, Malcolm Greenhalgh.
Our very own Jonny Grey was on hand to demonstrate some of the sterling work that the BCAA Fly Section has been doing to reinstate and improve habitat along reaches of the Aire (in partnership with the Environment Agency and their local Fisheries Officer, Pete Turner, via the Fishery Improvement Programme).
Phil Bailey, the BCAA Fly Secretary, had done an excellent job of organising an interesting line up of fly-casting and fly-fishing demonstrations, for old and young kids alike! Thanks are due to Phil, to Jim Munden (the President), and to the rest of the very supportive BCAA Committee for considering us.
