You can find her old cottage with Google Earth...and just make it out with Streetview.

A touch braw for me...no heating!!!
I may have fabricated the Kevin Costner bit,the voice over guy,(troy Mclur from the Simpsons).
Have you seen The Lost World of mr Hardy?

Over romanticised? That's quite interesting in the context of A Passion for Angling.

Overly arty perhaps.

I find the ambience of LWMH and Kiss the Water and most game fishing films quite soothing, whereas some of the more coarse orientations set my teeth on edge. Great macro lenses, but Elgaresqe sound tracks and pompous voice overs, not for me really.

Maybe call it overblown narrative, too much false emotion - that's what I mean. Passion could be irritatingly boyish at times but the photography was often lovely. I don't think it was particularly romantic.

Don't think anything as yet comes close to A Passion. Nothing makes you want to grab a rod and go a-angling as much.

Irritatingly boyish???? Surely reliving ones youth is what it's all about.....well it is for me, the only adult thing I do is go to the pub afterwards.....which is exactly where I am now.

I don't think fishing is about reliving youth. I just found it a little irritating and put on, that's all. Just my response. Still liked the programmes though, but have not seen for many years.

Well we will have to bid to differ there because going fishing for me is the one thing that keeps one foot back in my youth. When I fish I have not a care in the world and every day is different, every swim a new challenge full of opportunity even though I may have fished it a hundered times before. I fish evey week, sometimes twice a week and I still can't sleep properly the night before I go.....APFA summed up competley for me why we fish.....

Nicely put and well said, Sir. :Hat:
