If you look back to Mike's post on the first page , he said that the proceeds would go to the Wild Trout Trust. so, in my humble view, having made the promise we should honour it.

As to the "how we do it", sounds like a grand excuse for a Forum gathering and Haddo is the obvious location. Unless anyone has a better idea.

Sorely tempting with either  :cool:  but it was espresso made from unfeasibly expensive coffee beans harvested by dusky virgins or nuns somewhere in Africa  :z4  (something like that anyway  :wink: ).

Hi folks

Yes, I feel that the money raised from the raffle on this particular occasion should be donated to the Wild Trout Trust ......... as this was our original intention  :cool:

I think the reason for one or two of us thinking about possible alternatives for a donation ......... is that a good number of the forum members have already supported the WTT this month via their Ebay charity auction  :wink:

A lot of forum members are asking me if we can do this again next winter? The answer is yes ......... I would be delighted to run another winter fly tying competition again next winter and this would be an excellent opportunity for us to support our local River Don Hatchery  :cool:

The idea of a forum "day out" at Haddo in the near future is great thanks, I would like that and will put the kettle on  :z4  
Can Sandy and Hamish PM each other to agree on a Saturday that they can both come along to please? and we can organise it from there  :cool:

Lastly for now ......... I think we should auction the flies on here in a special thread ( rather than at a day out ) so that all forum members, including those who live overseas, can have the chance to win the flies  :cool:

I hope this is OK
Best wishes

Now that's a nice way to start the weekend!

Thanks Mike, Sandy and Hamish, for taking the time and trouble to organise this competition. It's a nice way to test your skills, so I'm looking forward to the next one.

I'll post my patterns shortly.

Hi folks

Jeroen very kindly sent me a PM to say thanks for the competition which he enjoyed taking part in for the fun  :cool:

"Although it's the first time ever I've won a prize with flytying, this competition to me was just for fun, so no need to send me a flyline. Maybe there's a youngster (Andrew or Jay) you can give it to? Cool way to sponsor a novice."

Thanks Jeroen!  :z16
I will award the prize to young Andrew, for tying three very nice flies and almost beating his Dad  :wink:

Best wishes

Hi Andrew,

My pleasure, but in all honesty it's Mike you have to thank. He was so generous to donate the prizes.

I hope you'll catch a lot of fish with the line. Which one did you choose?

All the best from Holland,

Jeroen
