    Worthing, West Sussex.

    Group of boys and girls with fishing rods walking along the pier.

    Shots of the sea front.

    Various shots of the young sea anglers casting their lines from the pier. Shots of them putting on bait, fixing rods and casting out their lines. Some of those angling are just dangling a line without using a rod.

    CU of a small sign asking for people not to disturb the anglers.

    Shots of some of the young girls trying their hands with the fishing lines.

    Nice shots of a boy and girl eating ice cream while watching their lines.

    Shots of some of the competitors reeling in their catches - they are all fairly puny.

    Shot of a man looking through a telescope at the end of the pier - he would need it to see the catches. More shots of fish and crabs caught.

    BV of man dressed as a child reeling in an old shoe on his line. He pulls funny faces as he reels in a kipper. The children laugh as they watch.

    Last shot of boy fishing as the sun sets over Worthing Pier.
