    Default MRA Auction XI Lot 5: A day on the Coln with Andy Grey

    LOT 5

    A day for 1 rod on the river Coln in Gloucestershire for either trout or grayling depending on when the winner decides to take the day.
    The day is with Andy grey, a qualified instructor who regularly guides on this river and all suitable tackle and waders can be supplied if required.

    “The day will either be on the Bull water or on another private stretch downstream, though for my money the Bull water is probably the best stretch on the Coln full stop and I've been lucky enough to have fished most of the river!”

    Kindly donated by Andy Grey
    Trout fishermen revere the trout; trout, on the other hand, unaware of their sublime standing in man's world, revere nothing, including man, a creature they seem to view with special contempt. Nihilism is a rare trait in fish but trout are full of it. The old men liked that.

    I can't let this go unbid, £20 from me.
    “There is no more lovely country than Monmouthshire in early spring. Nowhere do the larks sing quite so passionately, as if somehow inspired by the Welsh themselves. There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.”

    £50 from me Sir.
    I have never cast a fly in the county I was born, I really should put that right !
    Yes, I do heartily repent. I repent I had not done more mischief; and that we did not cut the throats of them that took us, and I am extremely sorry that you aren't hanged as well as we.
