    Default MRA Auction XII Lot 32: A day on the River Blythe in Warwickshire

    LOT 32

    A day’s fishing on several miles of the River Blythe, Warwickshire, within the private part of the 4,000 acre Packington country estate and deer park.
    The river here is very much a meandering lowland stream of small to medium size flowing over gravel and ranunculus and has quite a fair number of runs good for the fly fisher on dries or nymphs.
    Stocked with some very good quality trout, browns and rainbows, mixed in with some resident wild brown trout. A good head of coarse fish present – some good-sized dace will test anyone’s reactions on small dries!
    Usually a good mayfly hatch along with some reasonable olive and sedge hatches.

    Fishing to be taken at any time by arrangement as guest of donor, who has to be present on the river on the day. Winning bidder can be guided or just left to their own devices to wander with the aid of a map and some advice of the better spots etc.

    A hot or cold lunch and drinks can be provided.

    Kindly Donated by Nick Reeves (aka Camlad)



    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.
