Thank you Nicola V, it was a great trip and I enjoyed it as much as you and your family did. I would guess the barbecue on Thorncombe Beacon in the setting sun eating mackerel went extremely well. Thank you Nicola. Harry

We had a thoroughly enjoyable 3 hours and Joe looked after us superbly. We even got an 18 year old interested in fishing. Just finished off a Sunday Lunch of Mackerel Pollock and Bream with the catch.
