The Countryside Alliance 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 fishermen 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

This fantastic prize includes:
A 15ft Sage X #10/11 – purposecrafted 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 trout and
lake fishing.

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 brighteyed 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.
The raffle was launched on Thursday 30 January at Farlows in Pall Mall.
Tickets cost £25 and are available
n o w a t r o d r a f f l e. c o u n t r y s i d e Tickets are on sale until

Fishing for Schools has also
launched its impact report, showing
that over the past 12 years more than
3,000 children, from 110 schools, have
benefited from learning outdoors and
connecting with nature through the
Fishing for Schools director and
founder Charles Jardine said: “We are
so very proud of what we have
achieved since 2007 but we want to
do much more in the years to come.
Each year we receive many more
requests from schools than we can
cover. But with your help we can take
F4S into more classrooms.
“Taking part in our Rod Raffle is a
wonderful opportunity that will give
you the finest selections of fly rods
available and purpose-matched reels
and lines and will help us make a difference to the anglers of the future.
Please support angling’s future by
purchasing your ticket.”
