I quite liked this one from the mid sixties . It reminds me of good times but also the tag line makes me think of times when anglers perhaps had less tackle , makes me appreciate what I have.

Really ?

Well yes, .... sort of..Richard Walker captured the record fish with an early Mitchell half bail reel in September 1953, whereas that late full bail reel is from 1968 or later...but adverts were never about 100% accuracy I guess.

From 1953, I've never seen a Comet, but it does show that Edgar Sealey were right up there producing a 'glass' rod in '53 the same year as Allcocks released their offerings in 'glass'.( note the outline of an Ambidex half-bail)

A little self-advertisement from a hook packet...interestingly describing the famous Wizard rod as a roach rod:
