Countryside Alliance Rod Raffle 2020
By Jack Selby
Win four complete fly fishing sets worth thousands, to equip you for any occasion
The Countryside Alliance Foundation has launched possibly the biggest prize raffle ever for UK fly fishers, in aid of its charity, Fishing for Schools.
How would you like to win a set of rods, reels, lines and flies that will take you anywhere? The Countryside Alliance Foundation is offering you an unique opportunity to own the ultimate game-fisher's collection of fly rods, reels, lines and accessories.
This bespoke collection has been lovingly crafted for British rivers, lakes and streams and as part of the prize you will join top fly fisherman Charles and Alex Jardine for a day's fishing, learning what your kit can do!
Every £25 ticket sold in the Rod Raffle will support Fishing for Schools, which introduces fishing and extraordinary countryside experiences to disadvantaged children and young people.
The Prize: 4 Sage X fly-fishing rods, complemented with appropriate Hardy fly reels and matching Airflo fly lines and flies, donated by some of the world's leading fly-tiers.
This fantastic prize includes:
A 15ft Sage X #10/11 - purpose-crafted for big river salmon fishing and spey casting.
A 10ft Sage X #7 - designed for either single-handed salmon or grilse; but excellent for both sea treat and lake fishing.
A 9ft Sage X #5 - the world's favourite length and weight of trout rod. A fly rod that will go anywhere, from big rivers to little lakes... just take it with you and fish.
A 7ft 6in Sage X #3 - for those secret little streams where bright-eyed trout and grayling hide.
All four rods are handmade by Ian Tucker, one of the UK's finest rod builders. The set will be supplied with a cloth bag and protective tube.
Tickets cost £25 and are available online or call 0207 840 9300. Tickets are on sale until 31 March 2020 so still time to win.
