Interesting, thanks for posting! I was a boy fishing the Stour between 1965 and 1970.

I have a feeling the film may have inter-cut together two different bits of the C&DAA stretches of the Stour - the narrower stretch at Fordwich, where boats moor at the limit of navigation; and wider reaches much further downstream - Plucks Gutter or Grove Ferry? But I am not sure as I never fished the last two places.

Pity about the snide narration - very much of its time though!
