Leaving aside local and Clyde steamer history for a moment I have been adding to my film archive library collections with a recent focus upon archive fishing films unsurprisingly perhaps.

This is a small excerpt from a film “Fishing in Scotland” from the 1970’s featuring Scottish fishing champion Peter Anderson as he tours some of Scotland’s most renowned rivers and lochs.

This particular excerpt showcases Loch Lomond with the well-known Balmaha Boatman  Jimmy Pearman. We follow Peter Anderson and a very youthful looking Paul Young take on Bill McEwan and “Wee Jamie” dapping for sea trout on The “Big Loch” finishing with a “Drum Up” on the shore to compare catches….. enjoy.
