Please vote for wild trout!
The next Wild Trout Trust newsletter will be sent out by post or email, as appropriate, in about 2-3 weeks’ time. Meanwhile, please help us by voting for wild trout!
The Wild Trout Trust and the Mersey Basin Rivers Trust are hoping to win £22,000 of funding from the Aviva Community Fund to pay for creating a by-pass around a big weir on the River Goyt in Lancashire. This weir is currently a huge barrier to fish migration and by-passing it will make a big difference to trout, eels and salmon in the river. To win this money, we need as many people as possible to vote for us. You will need to register but it takes just a couple of minutes. Full details of the project and voting are HERE. Many thanks in advance if you are able to vote for us.
Also, our annual raffle is up and running, with five brilliant prizes: a Sage rod; a day for 3 rods on the Lambourn (courtesy of Famous Fishing); an overnight stay with fishing on the Derbyshire Wye (courtesy of the Peacock at Rowsley); a six-bottle case of wine (courtesy of Paul Kenyon) and a tenkara line and leaders (courtesy of Phoenix Lines). Thank you to all our donors. The draw will be held at the Thomas Lord pub in West Meon on Tuesday 13 December at 7pm and tickets cost a mere £1 each. You will find an order form enclosed with your newsletter or you can buy in the shop on our website HERE.
Lastly, our 2017 Annual Get Together will be with the Haddon Estate in Derbyshire on the weekend of 13 & 14 May – please pop the dates in your diary. We’ll have a day of super-interesting talks and river walks on the Saturday, with a Sunday of fishing on the excellent local rivers. More details will follow in the events section on the WTT website and in the Spring Newsletter.
Kind regards, Shaun Leonard
