Three-Fly Challenge to support the Wild Trout Trust

Ladies & Gents,

It’s that time of year again to put your name down for one of the most testing fishing challenges going and a chance to win a new Sage One X rod (£839 in the sportfish catalogue!), while at the same time helping the Wild Trout Trust to raise much needed funds. Places are limited to only 30 this year so send your cheque as soon as possible to book your place.

Offers of auction and raffle prizes are also gratefully received, please let me know if you can help.

The Three-Fly Challenge is a fishing tournament that will test your skills and catching ability, as you will only be able to use three flies (one at a time). These will be provided on the day:

Kites Imperial dry (3 points per fish);
Black buzzer (2 points per fish);
GHHE nymph (1 point per fish).

Points will be awarded according to the fly used and the weight of the fish, i.e. a 3lb fish caught with dry Kites Imperial would score 9 points (3 points x 3lb = 9), a 3lb fish caught with a pheasant tail would score 3 points (1 point x 3lb = 3) etc. The angler with the highest number of points will win a new Sage X 9ft 5wt rod. Many other runners-up prizes. A raffle and auction will be held at lunchtime. If you would like to attend you will be helping the Wild Trout Trust, a registered charity (no. 1162478) that was formed in 1997 to conserve wild trout throughout the UK and Ireland by encouraging people to protect and restore habitat.

Tickets cost £90 (same price for the last nine years!),including breakfast, cooked lunch, afternoon tea and a 4-fish ticket and flies.

Applications with a cheque for £90 made payable to The Wild Trout Trust should be sent to: Neil Mundy, Pine View, Forest Road, Denmead, Hants PO7 6UA. Applications can also be taken online at www.meonsprings.com.

Robinswood was Richard’s favourite place in the world. He also supported some charities that were very close to his heart.

Richard’s wife Jillian would like to invite you to join her on Saturday 1st July 2017 at Robinswood to celebrate Richard’s life in the most appropriate way, a fishing competition along with a glass of red!

Whilst at it, we will be raising funds for three charities by donating all entry fees in memory of Richard.

The fishing competition will be for best fish with trophies being given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.

June 6th – Manningford Trout Fishery

The event was a roaring success sponsored by Imtech Engineering Svs with the mentoring being done by angling clients of Imtech who did a superb job ably assisted by a few FFF mentors.

The guests were from the RAF 28 Sqdn with a few military personnel for a competitive mix. Biggest fish went to Mr Robinson (Mil) at 3lb 8ozs and Biggest bag to Mr Walker (RAF).

After a wet and windy the day died beautifully and judging by the smiles mission accomplished. Pint Tankards were presented to the winners by Simon Robson and most generously half pint tankards to the mentors.

Mr Walker (RAF) then kindly presented Mr Robson and I with beautiful framed prints signed by all the RAF lads and mine is already on my Wall of Pride. I feel privileged and “mission accomplished”.

Bill.
