WTT 3 Fly Fundraiser bags over £7000
Posted on June 19, 2018
WTT’s annual fundraiser at Meon Springs Trout Fishery in Hampshire was held last weekend, 16 June, fished by 46 rods and raising over £7000.
The day is brilliantly organised by WTT volunteer, Neil Mundy and all the staff at the fishery. Behind the scenes, two Mrs Mundys (only one is Neil’s wife) keep the books, WTT supporters Phil Marr and Mark Roberts are respectively the excellent silver trophy makers and fly tyers for the day and the ultimate prize is a top-notch rod kindly donated by Sage; the John Lewis Partnership FFC continues to provide vital sponsorship. Thank you all. The Meon Springs Long Barn (our lunch venue) is a place not to be missed.
The 3 Fly is held in memory of Pasco James, a young man mad on his fishing and his local river, the Meon and we are blessed that Pasco’s mum, Harriet Poland, presents the prizes. It’s really fitting that this day helps to keep our Assistant Conservation Officer, Ed Eley, in post, doing and learning about practical wild trout conservation work.
The 2018 3 Fly winner was avid WTT supporter, Ron Wilder, the ace fisher formerly known as Two Rods Ron, pictured here with Harriet.
We’ve already got 2019’s 3 Fly in mind for Saturday 15 June; do join us, it is a great, great event.
