I came across this today and thought folks here might be interested.

Check out "The Lost World of Mr Hardy" on google and you'll find the site.

Its very special and I highly recommend it - especially anyone interested in the history and art of rod and reel making. You'll also see a guy tying a full dressed Salmon fly without a vice!

There are several snippets on "Youtube" so you can get a feel and decide if its worth it.

Thanks Adrian....btw, when I interviewed Stu Apte a while ago he told me that when he was younger he would tie his saltwater flies using an old Sears Hand plier.... and he would take the silver strip at the top of Lucky strike cigarette pack for early use of flash in his flies.

Thanks Adrian.

Sometimes it's easy to lose the passion for flyfishing among the numerous other distractions that capture my attention, but this is one of those productions that rekindles it in the span of a trailer.
