When you’re fishing for business, a rod and reel aren’t usually of much help – but the Buttle’s annual fishing day has hooked many new customers and strengthened relationships with others.

This year’s event took place at a lake near Milton Keynes, and was co-sponsored by drainage manufacturer Brett Martin.

Twenty-five customers enjoyed an exciting competition, which was won by Ray Cormack of M. Funnell Builders with an impressive catch of 148lbs 5oz. The biggest fish, weighing 8lbs 9oz, was caught by Richard Wiley.
