Here's a bit of light-hearted fun from a fellow angler across the big pond. Dave Newman, U.K. pub owner and frequent fly-fisher of the River Wye, had a problem. He couldn't wade out far enough to put his casts in the middle of the river, where he claims the biggest salmon live. Solution? Newman fired up his hot air balloon, grabbed a rod and commenced hovering mid-river to get a better shot at the heavy hitters. So did the effort pay off?
