Dig deep for a worthy cause...UTFA Auction Lot 10A days guided fishing, with local guide Neil Keep, for one rod on a private 2 mile beat of Cam brook, a small stream just a few miles south of the city of Bath.Pit your skills in a challenging wild environment against the local population of wild brown trout that can grow to in excess of 2lb. The fishing is all about stealth and working out how to present your fly in what can be often described as “the jungle”. If the vegetation doesn’t grab your fly then the trout normally do, if you get things right then you may just hook into one of the brooks monsters who know every trick in the book to throw your hook. You can forget your overhead cast, it’s all about roll, side and bow and arrow casts, so your skills will be tested to their limits.The brook boasts a healthy variety of fly life, with Olives, Midge, Hawthorn, Caddis and a decent Mayfly hatch. Short rods are the order of the day, don’t worry if you don’t have the right kit as Neil can supply any of this for the day, along with a bankside picnic lunch.Due to the challenging fishing environment and to get the most out of the experience, the day would be more suited for someone with some river fishing experience, you will also need to be happy with wading and reasonably fit as entering and exiting the water can be a challenge. If you like wild fishing then this day is for you!The day is available to be taken on a mutually agreeable date in the 2024 season.More at www.neilkeepflyfishing.co.ukThis auction will end at 5pm on Thursday, 22nd FebPlease start the auction at £125 ...
