The Golden Age of Angling

I love looking at some of the delightful old films and footage of yesteryear from British Pathe and the BFI.......with only a week or so of the traditional coarse fishing season left here are some films to get you in the mood. The Kentish Stour film looks like a Golden Scale Club excursion. I especially like the film of Ray Mumford fishing and making floats with his brother Vernon (suitably attired for a fishing trip I must say, splendid jacket Vernon). Watch out for Bernard Venables in the very last film. Settle down and enjoy, pass the port Gramps!

Ray Mumford and Grove Ferry too. Memories are what they are. We lost a an LAA Shield Final at Grove Ferry and the Thames at Kingston brought back lots of memories. Great stuff Dickie.

ATB, John

Glad you like them Piscator and TT! Some wonderful footage, I bet there were a few crates of beer on board those coaches. TTFN Dickie
