• Short Summary

    Small boy Dave and his dog Dusty go fishing in the Serpentine in Hyde Park.

  • Description

    London.

    Small boy Dave and his shaggy dog Dusty sit by the Serpentine in Hyde Park. Dave holds a fishing rod. Commentator tells us there is a rule saying 'No fishing from the banks'. A park-keeper comes along and tells Dave to stop fishing. Dave makes a face, gathers his stuff together and walks off.

    The pair walk to a bridge and Dave puts his rod over the edge, on the premise that a bridge doesn't count as a bank. He ties a long piece of string to his rod and carries on fishing. The park-keeper comes walking along underneath the bridge and looks up at Dave. Dave makes a face at him and carries on.
