March Merkin Silent Auction

The March Merkin will hold it’s first online silent auction starting March 13th at 6PM and running until March 16th at 5:30PM.

We have some wonderful items this year including a trip to Espiritu Santo Bay in the Yucatan Peninsula donated by The Fly Shop. We also have a trip to H2O Bonefishing in Grand Bahama for some of the largest bonefish in the Bahamas. There are rods, reels, fabulous artwork, presentation flies from some of the most famous fly tiers, special edition books, flies for steelhead, permit, tarpon and bonefish.

To register for the silent auction here or you can also text the words “marchmerkin” to 24700 to be prompted to register.

We would appreciate it if you spread the word on this silent auction. Any one who is a fly fishing enthusiast would love the list of items we have to offer. We also have killer t-shirts with Bill Hartman’s March Merkin at on them. If you make a donation of $75 or more you can receive a t-shirt for free!
