We're going to be doing an auction again this year with the proceeds going to the bailiffs to help cover their out of pocket expenses.

 

I intend donating various items including books.  However I don't know which books to bring so need your help!

 

What type of book would you like?  What species? Better still are there any specific titles you'd bid for?

I think if I were to bid on a book it would be a float fishing book. Maybe one that covered shotting patterns, different techniques etc. I am a big fan of float fishing, particularly on rivers but don't really own any books relating to it as I simply have got round to getting any and I imagine most modern books will talk mainly about float fishing for carp on heavier methods. I did get one from Anderoo once as part of a bundle he kindly sent me but cant for the life of me think where I have put it. Many of the other books he sent me were passed on to those who needed them as they were starting out fishing.

I've got Ivan Marks on Match Fishing which has plenty about float fishing and shotting patterns, including several chapters on different rivers.

 

Any good?

The McCulleys have offered to bring some items along.  Apart from mine (details to follow) and Vagabond's there's nothing else. 

 

H-E-L-P!
