The Wild Trout Trust auction is going ahead as usual this year and is now live online.
The auction is the WTTs biggest fundraising event and provides vital funds, enabling them to deliver practical advice and habitat improvement projects for the benefit of wild trout and all wildlife that shares the places where they live.
The auction has over 300 lots, mainly fishing around the UK, but also flies, hand made rods and, this year, some especially lovely art.
The bidding takes place on eBay and by post. All the details, including a catalogue of lots with a map and a link to eBay, can be found on the WTT website:
This link will take you straight to all the lots on eBay.
If you sort by ‘ending soonest’ they appear in lot number order.’
Regarding the current situation, Shaun Leonard the WTT’s director says: “There is some really special stuff in this auction. Many of our donors have agreed to be as flexible as possible with their lots and bidders should be confident that we’ll sort out as best we can any problems that arise. It could just be that bidders win a day’s fishing and take it this summer (or a rod or some art etc etc) as the perfect antidote to the current crisis.”
