Just like last year and the year before, 2010’s third annual charitable Wander up the Wandle saw Andrew Farr take to the water outside the Merton Bus Garage – along with greater numbers of flyfishers than I think we’ve ever seen at one time on the famous Savacentre stretch. 

(And no, that’s not a big yellow float bung backup plan strike indicator that got away from one of them, it’s just a balloon that came floating fortuitously past as the camera shutter clicked!)

Later that day, the river repaid Andrew’s generosity to the Wild Trout Trust’s annual fundraising auction by hooking him up with a trout on the dry, somewhere upstream.

Such trophies may still be few and far between – but that’s why, as we said recently to the National Geographic, it’s like New Zealand out there
