There’s fish at Longham!

No, this was not a bouncy landing by David Bintcliffe, those splashes are the result of fish being startled by his Berkely Privateer passing low over their heads. Adrian and I saw them close up when we arrived at FP1, quite large creatures, at least 18” long. Couldn’t see any teeth though. Carp, perhaps?




This is how smooth his landings were, just skimming the surface .
