All-Party Parliamentary Angling Group visits Walthamstow

It was great to get away from the Parliamentary hothouse and spend some quality time with the guys from The Angling Trust fishing on Thames Water's amazing Walthamstow fishery in the heart of London. It's good to see a water company opening up their reservoirs to the community, especially when they offer anglers like myself a chance of landing personal best specimens in fabulous surroundings.

Landed a 37lbs 7oz Mirror Carp (which I released after the photo) a personal best for me!

The All-Party Parliamentary Angling Group trip was organised by former MP Martin Salter, who now works as Policy Chief for the Angling Trust, and hosted by Will Barnard, Angling Development Manager for Thames Water.
