WTT 3 Fly fundraiser nets more than £5,000 for chalk stream improvements

Organised once again by star WTT volunteer Neil Mundy, our latest 3 Fly competition took place on Saturday 17 June at Meon Springs Trout Fishery in Hampshire. 

The whole event, and the vital funds which it helps us raise, are dedicated to the memory of Pasco James, who died tragically and far too young in 2010. 

This year, our friendly competition was won by long-time supporter Roy Gosling, and we raised over £5,000. Pasco was an enthusiastic fisher at Meon Springs, but also a very keen river man who much loved the chalk streams – and we’ll be putting these proceeds into a special restricted fund for work on the southern chalk streams, and use it for practical river improvement projects in the area.

Our huge thanks go to:

  • Neil Mundy for organising the whole day for us
  • Greg Adlam and his colleagues at Meon Springs
  • Roy and Bridget Gosling for donating the cut glass decanter and tankard trophy (which Roy then won, and gave to Greg at the fishery!)
  • Mark Roberts for tying and donating all the flies for each competitor
  • Everyone who joined so generously in our competition, raffle and auction!
