The Lost World of Mr Hardy

Discover a lost world from the golden age of angling

Hardy's is a dearly loved old British company. They make fishing tackle, the very best. They once counted Kings, Queens and all the Maharajahs amongst their customers. They employed an army of craftsmen and conquered an empire with their passion for angling. Today their old, used fishing tackle fetches tens of thousands at auctions, but after 140 years the company is a shadow of itself, a victim of mechanisation and globalisation. Yet the name of Hardy's is just as loved. This is the story of the passion of the craftsman, a love of fishing and an enduring need for the handmade. The film asks if there is still a place for this kind of beauty in our modern world.
