Terry Thomas - not the absolute shower

Post by Sneezewort »

Not so much a film as a Saturday morning programme (I think) from the 70’s . Terry Thomas, Angling Today? I think it was ATV who aired it?
I have never come across it on any archive platform, yet there is plenty written on his involvement with Milward “versa” rod design elsewhere, (which I didn’t know)

He always seemed to have a cigar on the go and wearing tweeds or is that just me wistfully imagining that?

Another absolute pleasure was Derek Law’s “ a fishermans diary” or was it “a fisherman’s year”? -albeit focused over the 4 seasons, initially spring trout and grayling on the fly on the Yorkshire rivers, he did also fish for pike on a lake, and perch I think on Masham tarn, usually with a bit of floppy cane and a pin.
The narration with his Yorkshire accent was gentle and sublime - almost as soothing as the great Jack Hargreaves was to my younger ears.
