The Lost World of Mr Hardy (trailer)

This is the story of an angling passion over the centuries.

As a boy, mad keen on fly fishing, I was fascinated with the legendary Hardy’s, the ‘Rolls Royce of angling’. 25 years later, I realise just how special a place Hardy’s still have in the hearts of anglers everywhere. I wanted to know why, to find out how that name came to mean so much more than just fishing to so many people all over the world.

A film journey across 135 years was the result.

The Lost World of Mr Hardy is being hailed as a ‘modern classic’, read what the critics are saying:

“Spectacular… I defy you to watch with a dry eye”
Ken Russell, THE TIMES

“Savour the glory… relish every minute.”
Fieldsports magazine

“Unmissable. Buy it now.”
Classic Angling magazine

“I can’t recommend it highly enough!”
Fly Fishing and Fly Tying magazine
