The May Annual Auction

The May Annual Auction

 8pm Thursday May 17th 2018

 

 

 

 

 

The May meeting will be our only auction of equipment and books this year. These are always very popular events, and a great opportunity to pick up a top Sage or Winston rod or Hardy reel for a pittance. Bargains galore. Hughie Maltby, who is organising the items for sale, and who will be our auctioneer on the night, has given us this note:

 

Our May Auction promises to be a special occasion as we will be selling an excellent range of rods, reels, flies, fly tying equipment and materials, along with some modern and also sought-after books.

 

This equipment is predominantly from the late Richard Salvado and Tony Brothers collections, along with a few other additions.

In all there will be around 100 items going under the hammer, so come along and don’t miss out on this once only opportunity to pick up some fond memories of our great mates.

The catalogue is listed below:
