    I notice only one of you has paid

    The treasurer
    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.

    Thank you for leading the way, Paul.

    There is a current maximum of 22 (see separate names list below) places available with your hosts for the weekend being the usual suspects from the Monnow mafia, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly .

    Whilst we always look foreword to hosting our regulars we also welcome fresh faces to the event, all are welcome. If you are new to river or fly fishing in general this is a great opportunity to pair up with experienced hands and learn some of the dark arts - You will be hooked – But in the nicest possible way.

    The cost for this year's event will be 130. Your money will cover camping costs, a special supper on Friday, steak supper on Saturday and cooked breakfast on Saturday & Sunday mornings; it will also include your fishing for the weekend. One day on the main stem and one on a wilder upper river beat. As with previous years there will be the opportunity to cast a fly Friday afternoon/evening on the home waters next to or near the camp site. Any surplus funds raised will go straight to the Monnow Rivers Association.

    As in the past, we will be seeking to repeat the Saturday night “lively” auction. So if you have anything to contribute - no matter how obscure - then bring it along.

    The idea is to secure a wide range of beats and keep them as lightly fished as possible so that nobody gets "sloppy seconds". For those of you who know the river system, well you know what to expect.

    The other thing to note is that the Social offers the opportunity to fish beats not normally available to day fishers. Many of them are amongst the most picturesque and exclusive beats on the river.

    So if you are interested and would like to come along, please drop me a PM and I’ll add you to the list of attendees.

    Patrick (Mr P) will be handling the two methods of payment this year:-
    By cheque to:
    Monnow Rivers Association
    The Treasurer
    Old Church Farmhouse
    Penallt
    Monmouth
    NP25 4AW

    or by bank transfer:

    sort code: 30-00-03
    account no: 02433069

    Please use MRA Social as reference for Patrick`s benefit.

    Any questions just ask but as a taster visit previous years social threads.

    Cheers
    Neil
