For the last 8 years Wessex Rivers Trust has run an auction of donated fishing days. The auction has gone from strength to strength and is an extremely important source of funding for us, never more so than this year, when other sources of funding are looking threatened by the global pandemic. The auction funds help us to continue with the important work and projects the Trust continues to undertake in the Wessex region.
Last year the timing of the auction was unfortunate – as the sale launched we were in the midst of the CV-19 lockdown. The uncertainty of whether fishing was to be allowed definitely impacted on last year’s bids. We can only be optimistic that the fishing season in 2021 will go ahead as planned with no restrictions imposed.
To that end we are carrying on as normal and will run the fishing auction as in previous years. If you have a day’s fishing that you would be happy to donate please let Lee Bush know – email@example.com
Thanks to those many kind friends and supporters of Wessex Rivers Trust who have generously donated exciting and rarely available fishing days over the last few years. Most of these special fishing days are on private or club waters which cannot normally be accessed by the public.
The sale will go live on the Wessex Rivers Trust website in mid-February so keep an eye out here or on our socials.
