Wild Trout Trust Auction result

The Wild Trout Trust auction on eBay, which closed on March 14th , was a resounding success, with just under £55,000 raised. The money will be used help fund the Trust’s work to provide practical advice to fishing clubs and landowners to improve habitat for wild trout and sea trout.

Director Shaun Leonard said:

We are absolutely delighted by the response to the auction. My sincere thanks to the donors of the lots and to the purchasers who have won outstanding fishing for wild trout and a host of other species.

I must too thank all those involved with the non-fishing lots: the rod-makers, fly tiers, book writers, painters, plane fliers, shooters, stalkers and farmers who have added so richly to the success. A thought too for the many who bid but did not win — thank you and please try again in 2014. Wild brownies, sea trout and their habitat across the UK will be the beneficiaries of all your generosity! 

Anyone who would like to donate a lot, or receive a copy of auction catalogue in March 2014 should contact Denise Ashton at dashton@​wildtrout.​org
