New Meaning to Fly Fishing!

English Man Fishes from Balloon!
Dave Newman, a British pub owner from Wilton near the River Wy has given new meaning to the term "fly fishing".

Mr Newman, thought he could improve his usual fly fishing routine by doing casting his line from a hot air balloon!

The Hereford Times reports that the balloon was initially designed for the use of TV reporters and cameramen looking to get some areal shots, but Mr Newman thought it would give him the best fishing position on the river.

Don't get too excited though, the newspaper also reported that Newman didn't catch a thing from his areal vantage point!
