I am sure I spotted a TFF badge on a chaps jacket!

Superb! Thanks for that, it did look like a mass gathering of tff members, think I may start to wear a tie for our gatherings :Hat:

Interesting film, but fish welfare didn't seem to be much of a priority!

Very good, thanks for posting. Interesting to note the different reel positions, generally much lower on the handle. Not a Wallis cast in sight either...

Was it always cold in the fifties?

Everyone has a great big overcoat on.

Good though. Just love old movies like that.
