Last Thursday the club held an ‘in-house’ auction of a selection of fishing tackle which belonged to Bob Shallcroft, a long time member of Roundhay Flyfishers who sadly passed away earlier this year. Bob had accumulated an extensive collection of flies, amongst other things, which will now be used by his friends at Yorkshire Anglers for years to come and we managed to raise an impressive (in relative terms!) amount of money for charity.
Bob was a legend and a true gent, they don’t make guys like him anymore and the world is a poorer place for it. More info on Bob here: http://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/obituaries/Bob-Shallcroft.6109590.jp
