Since the 19th century the craftsmen of the family firm Hardy’s have hand-made beautiful cane fishing rods and exotic salmon flies which are cherished by keen fishermen all over the world. This documentary tells of the history of the company, using interviews with family members and archive film from the 1930s, all the while making us realise what this country has lost in skills and the tradition of craft. “The greater issue accumulates forcefully but quietly - the value of craftsmanship in a global economy preoccupied with quantity.” -Ken Russell, The Times
