Angler attempts to fish from hot air balloon!

A keen angler took his passion to another level when he tried to take a memorable catch while being suspended high up from a one man hot air balloon!

Ross on Wye pub landlord Dave Newman strapped himself to the balloon and took to the sky before casting out into the River Wye.

Spectators gathered to see the bizarre stunt but it didn’t all go to plan as Dave revealed.

“It was my first attempt at ‘fly fishing’ and it was great fun but I didn’t catch anything on that flight – but I’ll certainly consider giving it another shot!”
