Sea Angling In Orkney 1968 Part 1

by David Proudfoot

Video from Mike Shepley. Shot on 16mm film in Orkney in June and November 1968, SEA ANGLING IN ORKNEY was Mike’s first joint venture into producing angling programmes with his friend and fishing companion, Michael Prichard. The programme features the legendary sea angling and beach-casting guru, Leslie Moncrieff. BA was BEA in those days – and Mike a youthful 25 years old. This is part one of that quest in the beautiful islands of Orkney just a few miles across the Pentland Firth from the Scottish mainland. It features the rugged coastline of the Island of Hoy and some excellent sport with haddock, cod and ling. The common skate and halibut come later, in parts 2 and 3. Enjoy. Mike dedicates this short clip to Mike Prichard and Les Moncrieff who are sadly no longer with us.
