Funding request


Well-Known Member
Hi all,

Firstly a big thank you to the SD management who have been kind enough to allow me to post a funding request for a little project I am hoping to run.

I'm a teacher, and I'm looking at helping youngsters get into fly fishing by providing them with a number of opportunities at the group of schools where I work.

Parental donations will largely cover licensing and fishery costs (which I hope to negotiate), but I'm currently trying to raise some funding to buy some sets of gear for the students to use and some fly tying equipment so they can try that too.

For a bit more detail about the project, my funding page is Cast the Fly - Fishing Experience

If anyone is able to support my little project in any way, it would be most appreciated.

As a little thank you from myself, I would like to put names in the hat for anyone who donates £5 or more though my funding page, drawing one name out and offering them a days pheasant shooting next season (approx 60 bird day) on my syndicate shoot.

Hi Stu.
My local fishing club have just gone down the same route. There are grants to be had for purchasing the equipment (rods, reel and lines etc) when it is for the benefit of school children. I have a club management meeting tomorrow night and will ask the secretary where we obtained our grant. Hope that will help offset the cost for you. Gaz

Great idea. I started fishing at a young age and it's a big part of the reason I love the outdoors and now shooting. I'll happily donate, drop me a PM with details please.

Donation of equipment would be most welcome. I will PM you an address if you wished to send anything.

If I had any vices around you'd be welcome to them.
I've done a lot of community chest grants myself with our Own Club for our junior fly tying section.
Might be worth you contacting some suppluers asking to put a basic kit together.
Again, if I had enough stuff I'd put something together.

Garry Evans usually have decent outfits at good prices,as well as lathkill for quality fly tying gear.

Good luck
