We start at 6:00 PM with the silent auctioning of some of the best flies in Northern California, simply because many of the best tiers in Northern California are members of our club. Dozens of flies will be on display for your review and bidding until 7:45 PM.
Everything for the live auction will be on display from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Don't forget to look over all the wonderful stuff. Get your bidder number, mark your favorites and set your wish list prices to be paid for such outstanding gear as:
- Equipment- Rods, reels, lines
- Guided Trips
The live auction starts at 8:30 p.m.
Donations are always welcome. Those club members and other individuals wishing to make donations to this year's annual auction should contact Bill King.
This is one activity held each year that is a must for you. It is your chance to get some good deals and some great deals. There are raffle packages, silent auction, plus a regular auction. Everything from flies to guided fishing trips are offered. This is a good time to take care of your fishing needs. The Annual Auction is the main fundraiser for the club's donations to various conservation groups in Northern California, for a fisheries-related scholarship at UC Davis, and for other club activities supporting local charitable groups tied in some way to fly fishing.
You need more stuff!
Of course you need more stuff. Fly fishers and tiers can always use more stuff. Especially if it's good stuff. The stuff that is annually auctioned off at the Diablo Valley Fly Fishermen Annual Auction is typically great stuff. Even if it were to include items that one person might regard as trash, stuff to get rid of if for no other reason than to clean out the garage, in the eyes of another, especially a fly tier, it might be terrific stuff, with fabulous potential for dressing bits of forged and sharpened wire.
