It’s that time of year! Yes folks, prepare to feast your eyes on a host of amazing fly fishing goodies. From hosted fly fishing days on a selection of rivers to rods and reels, and a range of custom-tied flies you’ll not find in the shops. First though, a little background…
The Monnow Rivers Association
All of these wonderful items are, of course, auctioned in aid of the Monnow catchment and, specifically, the folks at the brilliant Monnow Rivers Association.
These are the guys who, through relentless and backbreaking commitment, work to ‘improve the productivity and holding capacity of the river by the creation of increased good habitat for all life stages of the brown trout’. Like many rivers on the Welsh Borders and into South Wales, the Monnow Rivers Association works to reverse the damage suffered over the last few decades.
Such work is also able to benefit a wide range of other important species, including otters, native crayfish, and water voles.
Remember, the Monnow Rivers Association isn’t a fishing club. It is a group of like-minded anglers and individuals who are passionate about the Monnow and her surrounding environment. Thanks to this group, the highly invasive Himalayan Balsam was recently eradicated throughout the entire length of the River Honddu, a project which would not have been successful if not for the funds raised by such auctions.

Yes, once again I’ve been
hounded lovingly asked to provide an auction lot, and I couldn’t be happier to help. This year’s lot comprises one (1) dozen March Brown CDC Emergers for early season and beyond and is presented in a Loon compartment fly box.
All patterns are tied using the highest quality materials, including hooks, Semperfli threads, Nature’s Spirit natural dubbings, to name but a few. The flies you see below have been pre-tied and will be shipped to the lucky winner as soon as I receive notification from the Monnow Rivers Association on/after 13th March.
