Last year, more than 20 anglers took part in Meon Springs' first Vintage Fly Fishing Day to celebrate an old-school approach to this wonderful sport.
Dressed in vintage clothing and using split cane rods, it was a thoroughly good day out. And the fishing wasn't bad either! Andrea Smith landed the biggest rainbow with 9lb 7oz - pipping Ron Wilder to the top spot by just two ounces.
David Rowe won the award for best dressed angler. A massive thank you to all those who took part - and also for those who helped out with the catering. Thanks must also go to Phoenix Fly Lines and Snowbee for donating prizes for Andrea and David. Here's to this year's event on Saturday October 27 which you can book here!
And if you want to know why the event was so much fun, check out Allan Robinson's video from last year.
