Wonderful viewing Dave :Hat:

That was great, what a good find. I wish they’d had the forethought to name some of the little villages shown, I’m sure I visit them regularly. Would love a trolly dash in the tackle shop. £50 in 1964, too. I’d have examined that cheque for traces of rubber..

A trolly dash in a 1964 tackle shop - what a great idea. Now wheres my time machine.

Superb, thanks for posting that link.

Bernard Venables was a real gentleman.

But does anyone else remember a fishing character called Vernon Bedables, in a TV comedy show?

Belated thanks - a fantastic film and perfect lockdown viewing! Love the reference to fishing's 'unsmiling language' of floats and flies and again to its 'solemn verbal embroidery'! What a great turn of phrase.

Oh my word !!! That took me back !!! Especially the section 1 minute and 30 in, fishing in Seaton Sluice harbour, and then going up into The Kings Arms .., a pub still in existence. Seaton Sluice is a small village lying between Blyth and Whitley Bay on the Northumbrian coast. I lived there between my 7th. and 9th. years in a house just 475 yards south of that pub ... atop the cliffs overlooking the North Sea ... and it was from the rocks below I spent time trying to fish with one of those crabbing hand lines so popular with kids on their holidays. It really was "a kind of heaven." Thanks for bring those memories flooding back, Dave !!!
