Romano: Vintage Hardy Tackle Video

Hardy fishing tackle has been around since 1872. William Hardy and John James, two brothers who started out as gunsmiths in Alnwick, Northumberland, found that their desire to fish outgrew their love of guns. Voila, one of the sports most iconic brands was born. It’s still going strong 138 years later. If you’re lucky enough to own one of their rods or reels this trailer for “The Lost World of Mr. Hardy” should pique your interest about, “the story of a much loved family fishing tackle business and the struggle for craftsmanship in a modern world.” Enjoy. — TR
