"Such casting is almost certain to bring quick results". *sigh*!

And it probably wasn't even the least bit ironic back then.

That was a great video ...

A few of those Albernie trees might still be along the highway...

Net? We don't need no stinkin' net!

That music reminded me of an old Buster Keaton/Roscoe Arbuckle movie!

Thanks for that bit of nostalgia!

I must get one of those barbless catch & release gaffs for my forthcoming trip to the Tweed............

But seriously, imagine how many fish were running those rivers back then!

I'm so encouraged to know that I'm not the only one that fishes in my Sunday church clothes!
I've lost track of the number of times I've hit the river straight from church. Or fished for a few hours in dress clothes, with only having to remove my waders to pick up my wife for an evening date. Try doing that after you've been cutting cured eggs or shrimp. What a great gentleman's sport we have. It should get the same respect as golf!

Yes, I can just imagine my wife dressing up and accompanying me to the river, admiring m manliness, cheering me on, and sighing with satisfaction as I return to shore with my gaffed steelhead.

Oh wait. No I can't.

Very cool but I couldn't help notice it was produced by the Canadian government. Perhaps a bit ironic seeing that I watched it just after signing the two petitions on behalf of the Thompson River steelhead, where I lamented that the Canadian government should do more to help that particular stock? How the times have changed.
