  • Description

    Kingston, Surrey.

    Various shots show prize-winning angler Ray Mumford at home, making floats for angling from quills and corks. We then see Ray sitting by the River Thames at Teddington, attaching a float to his rod and fishing. Ray's brother Vernon is seen 'ledgering' - fishing without a float; he covers his home-made bite detector with bread crumbs and maggots (yeuch!), attaches it to his rod and casts it in the water.

    M/S of Ray putting a handful of maggots into his home-made catapult; he shoots the wrigglers into the water to attract fish to his float. He catches a small fish and puts it into a keep-net in the water.

    There are no C/Us of squirming maggots in this story.

    Note: print is quite badly scratched. There are notes on file about Ray; he won two gold medals in the All England Championships for angling. Cuts exist - see separate record.
