BI Fly Fishers hook online auction

Bainbridge Island Fly Fishers will hold their first online auction fundraiser from 6 p.m. May 12 to 6 p.m. May 16.

The auction supports Bainbridge youth fly fishing as proceeds go to the annual Youth Fly Fishing EXPO at Battle Point Park. That event is hosted by the BI Metro Park & Recreation District with financial and volunteer support of BIFF as well as other local fly-fishing clubs and businesses.

The EXPO will not be taking place this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.

But normally youth ages 7 to 17 are given the opportunity to learn some casting and fly-tying skills, a bit of fish and stream biology, and get the opportunity to catch some of the 300-plus fish planted in the pond.

Proceeds also support local conservation and restoration projects.

The auction includes new and gently used fly fishing equipment, hand-tied flies, gadgets, collectables, guided trips and more. Anyone can participate.

Donated items include:

• a new Sage 6-weight, 9-foot Foundation rod and reel package

• guided fishing trips

• personal casting lessons

• a two-night stay at The Inn at Pleasant Beach

• a beautiful watercolor painting

All items will be available for pickup May 22 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church, 8595 NE Day Rd, Bainbridge Island. Alternative arrangements also can be made.Only select items, as noted in the item description, will be available for shipping. Payment by credit card only.

Go to galabid.com/biff or to the Facebook Page “Bainbridge Island Fly Fishers” to get to the auction page, to sign up for the auction and to see photos and descriptions of the auction items. The website will be under construction and items added until the opening day. For details email Mark Hormann at BainbridgeIslandFlyFishers@gmail.com or call 650-477-6459.
