In case you have not heard check out this post:

http://www.flyfishingforum.com/flytalk4/showthread.php?p=120847#post120847

We are going to use this thread to gather donations with all proceeds headed to Knut to help with medical costs.

Please check around and if you have some gear you can spare to help another person out please consider donating to the cause.

Will let this thread go for a couple weeks and then we will start up the auctions.

Thanks for the help,

Just got off the phone and CND is in for a donation.

They are donating a brand new Salmo Salar Specialist which is fitting as that is what Knut spends most of his time persuing.

Hello,

I started two-hand spey casting few months ago after I went to Spey-O-Rama at GGACC.
Needless to say I was very impressed with demonstrators including Syrstrads.
I would like to donate a single hand rod and two reels.
They are not new but only used several times at casting pond.

Sage 890-3 RPLXi 9ft 8wt 3pcs + sock, tube & unfilled warranty card
Bauer M4 + pouch, box, instruction, lube & unfilled warranty card
Bauer M3 + pouch, box, lube & unfilled warranty card

Regards,
Kazu

Hi Folks,

I would like to donate a set of four piece 16' Carron rods, along with the leather case to hold them. All are initialed and numbered.
This is the rod I used to win the 2001 Musto competition. Please bid high on this, it is one of only one!
I shall also donate a couple of new partridge fly-lines.
Keep the donations coming in.

Ian

Sorry I missed much of this while I was away and am only now just beginning to catch up.

It is great to see all of this with more to come! I'll add three full days worth of private spey lessons with video analysis and three subscriptions to the speypages newsletter (including all previously published articles).

Fishing trip to Ireland 2005. (3-4 days)
All fishing, accomadation, and Guinness included !
For the one that has always fancied a trip to Ireland, to spend a few days in persuit of salmon/sea trout.
I`m fortunate to have rods on the famous rivers Moy, Slaney, Galway Weir, and Mourne. ( Dates and locations to be agreed to suit visit.)
Just arrive, be our guest, and leave the rest to Irish hospitality.
A trip you`ll never forget.

We have some last minute activity from another forum sponsor so I am holding back the auction a day or so until we get their auction donation.

Sean, all.

Great to hear that there are more donations coming in. I think Steve Choat may have a few more items he wanted to add per his email earlier?

By the way, since I posted the information on Knut, a total of $3865 cash donations have been received from various GGACC members and individuals through the Spey Pages. It's been a tremendous response !

Thank you to all those who contributed towards Knut's treatment fund thus far!

$3865 cash donations :Eyecrazy:

Wow. A great response indeed. With our auction lineup I think we should be able to get this close to the 10k mark.

Thank you again Donna for getting the wheels in motion.

Dear Donna,
First off, you're definitely going to have to arm wrestle me to keep me from bidding on the trip to Ireland! Maybe we can talk them into splitting the trip so we can both go!

It's great to see the spey casting community coming together to support such wonderful brothers and in a common cause! I have a few other items that need new homes..

17' Daiwa Whiskerfly...in good condition with nylon rod sleeve...well traveled, older technology with lots of sentimental value...bought from Per Stadigh from Sweden and used in the Musto 2002 spey competition...

18' Burkeheimer...used in the Musto 2003 spey competition...1 of 1...Stout! has my name on it, but for a small price I'm sure Kerry would remove it and put new owners name on it..

15' Sage 8150..Good condition with original rod sack, and tube..

Carron Jetstream 10/11 intermediate...test cast only...in floating 10/11 Carron tin..

All the following are new in boxes form my splicing and dicing days!

Airflow Delta traditional 9/10
Airflow Delta traditional 8/9
SA Ultra 3 DT 8F spey line
Delta Long spey 8/9
Delta long spey 9/10
SA Mastery spey 8/9 x2
SA Mastery spey 10/11
Cortland 2 handed double taper 10 F
Cortland Lazerline DT4F x2
Cortland Lazerline DT8F
Cortland Lazerline DT6F
Cortland 2 handed DT9F
Cortland lazerline DT5F
Airflow speycaster WF 12F
Hardy DT11 spey floating

Hey Sean,
btw, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your flies...for 10 bucks to the cause, I'll tie up a dozen of my summerun favorites, they may not be upto to the quality of many of our more elite tiers, but have occasionally caught fish...actually make it 5 bucks that way you wont be disappointed! LOL! Thanks for all your help!

What a great opportunity to give some gear new homes where it will be appreciated and support a good cause!!

steve
