We were also joined by four-legged friends Finn, Flo and Bee, who thoroughly enjoyed playing together whilst exploring the Timsbury beat and going for an afternoon swim.

The day started with a few light showers, however, by late morning the fishing conditions were absolutely perfect, with many Brownies and Graylings making an appearance throughout the day. A delicious BBQ lunch was also provided by Wilds Catering from the Greyhound on the Test.

A big thank you to everyone who came along. We had such a great day and look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
