Hardy

We are proud of our exciting partnership with leading tackle manufacturer, Hardy, who actively support our important work conserving wild fish and their waters

As dedicated wild fish conservationists, Hardy are proudly committed to protecting salmon, trout and the UK's waterways, for which their partnership with us was established.

In an act of generous support, Hardy have kindly donated two exceptional lots to the S&TC Annual Auction this year, which are expected to generate handsome sums for our work.
