Preparation of the catalogue for our second auction for this year is now under way, so if you have surplus tackle or any fishing related items for sale, download an entry form now click here and submit - not later than four weeks before the auction date - either by by post:

Roy Gurney
29 Capel Avenue
BN10 8 NB

or by e-mail to

Please note – as there has been tendency for an over-subscription of books for the auction recently, we will be organising a “bring and buy” evening for books during one of the tying nights, probably in November - details of this will be given later. Consequently, it is likely that we will not be including books in this auction except in special circumstances.

No buyers' premium - what you bid is what you pay! The auction is a great opportunity to pick up a bargain or generate some cash for yourself by selling unused items lurking in your cupboards, garage, shed etc. Items submitted to the auction must be brought to the auction on the night (in time for the viewing, which precedes the auction) or must be given to a committee member well in advance of the auction.
Bidders must register on the night, although if you are a member of the branch and are unable to attend you may leave a bid for an item on the book with Roy Gurney.
