We can't go fishing, but we can plan....
Roaming the lonely hills and quiet valleys in search of wild trout is one of the quintessential adventures of any fishing season. Wales is justly famous for sewin and salmon, but the Principality's fishing for brown trout, pike and grayling is also superb. Thanks to many of our generous supporters, the Wild Trout Trust Auction brings you a wide choice of chances to explore llyns and rivers across Wales.
Just a few of the Lots on offer: wild brownies Llyn Gwiddior or a mountain lake near Bala, the possibility of big trout on the Usk and Taff, salmon on the Wye, grayling on the River Dee and pike from Llyn Brenig.
There are 38 auction Lots of fishing in Wales in the Auction – lots 83 to 111. Click here to go to all the Lots on eBay.
The timing of the Auction is (to put it mildly), unfortunate, in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis and many potential bidders will be concerned about committing to buy fishing at this time. We can only be optimistic that fishing will be possible at some point this season. Many of our generous donors have indicated they are happy to be flexible and will defer to next season if necessary, and we will, of course, refund winning bidders where Covid-19 prevents them from taking their fishing day.
The Auction is an extremely important source of funding for us, and never more so than this year, when other sources of funding are looking threatened by the crisis around us. The Auction funds are vital for us to continue our work to improve rivers for wild trout.
Please support us if you can.
The Auction will close on Sunday 29 March, starting at 5pm. Don’t forget the clocks change on Sunday!
