Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall launches new Mk III Wheelyboat at Sutton Bingham Reservoir near Yeovil

On a bright, spring day, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall charmed guests at the launch of Sutton Bingham's new Wheelyboat with a story of how his father helped him catch a mackerel from Richmond Park when he was six! Ever since, he has been hooked on fishing. The new Wheelyboat replaces Sutton Bingham's old Mk I Wheelyboat and will be available for trout and coarse fishing as well as nature watching and pleasure boating. It has been jointly funded by Lord Barnby's Foundation, a charitable trust, and Wessex Water plc, Sutton Bingham's owners.
