Once again the Trust has been gifted a large amount of fishing tackle to dispose of to raise funds for not just the Trust but two cancer charities will also benefit. This generous donation will be listed on ebay auction site shortly. It has been catalogued and photographed and will be available for inspection if required at the Trust’s offices.
We will take bids on the items from Trust members (only members) in advance of the auctions starting but once they commence, further bidding will be through ebay only and free for all to take part. Any bids placed in advance will set the auction reserve. The highest bid received either in advance of the auction starting or during the auction will win once the auction closes.
We will provide accurate details and photographs of the items for sale on ebay and on this blog page (to be updated in the next day or so). We will only be able to answer questions about the tackle once the descriptions have been detailed on ebay for all to see. In the meantime, I have added some photos and brief descriptions below (some may need more detail and this will be added shortly).
