Presented by Finegand Estate Ltd Glenshee, Perthshire:

An excellent opportunity for two rods to try this small but easily fished river in beautiful scenery.  This is fly only, and fishes well from June onward.  Each beat is approximately 1½ miles long.  Although it is definitely classed as a spate river, fish can be caught in all waters.  The Shee Water, which is the head waters of the river Ericht and a tributary of the Tay, provides exciting salmon fishing, where sport can be expected to come thick and fast.  It can be extremely prolific – fishing well late in the season.  This has always proved to be a popular lot with our bidders.  To be taken prior to 31st August - date by arrangement with the donor, who can also provide the successful bidder with a list of local accommodation.

Presented by Barrie Hunt:

An opportunity to bid for a virtually unused vintage 3 draw leather clad field telescope manufactured in 1940s/50s by Newbold & Bulford of London, under their brand name ENBEECO. 

This is a very nice example of a 3 draw field or stalkers telescope, complete with original leather cladding.

The optics are all in good condition with a 50mm objective lens and a pancratic tube providing four levels of magnification 25x, 30x, 35x and 40x power. 

The image clarity is very good as is the overall cosmetic condition. 

With a firm draw action, the draw tubes and main barrel are dent free and retain their full anti-glare coating, important when being used in the field.

The length fully drawn is 33 inches (84cm) with the first tube being engraved ‘FIELD (C&S) 25x-40x, ENBEECO LONDON.’ 

The brown calf leather cladding, protective end caps and carrying strap are in excellent condition with only the odd scuff. The stitching is all intact and clean.

An excellent example that would grace any field day.

Due to the nature of this Lot it will need to be collected from either The Heather Trust office, just outside Lochmaben in Dumfries and Galloway or from the bidders address at: NG33 4SB in Lincolnshire.
