Summed up angling so well ... £37 in 1964 is worth £540 today .that would be a lot of money today... .. Cor . The fella on a bike talking about one day catching a big . Makes you realise that the commercials really did fill that hole of not catching fish ... It's changed fishing . But then again things change.

I enjoyed that, the chap with the salmon at the end looks like he could do with a spot of grease on his reel.

Latest addition to the BFI archives: To Cane a Trout - 1974 a Hardy promotion film. Terrific footage on the stages of building a split cane rod - follow the link from the Caught by the River website. :Hat:

Thanks TemeLAD, Hook, Line and Sheffield 1963.... Though I was down south and little bit earlier, 1962 was when I that I took my first faltering steps in angling... Sitting between my Father & Grandfather with my little rod, trying to copy them..... Cheers mate, the loving reminiscence, which will last to my final days......

Thank you for posting TemeLAD, most considerate of you. A very interesting film.

I picked up a new way (I think) to apply the thread, without faffing about
with masking tape and a pull through loop.

Just goes to show though that Hardy, along with so many rod builders used machinery
to produce their rods. Yet attach the Hardy name to the cane and it increases the cost
