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.
