Thi just came up on my HULU subscription.
Mr. Hardy of Hardy fly fishing fame.
Being a fly fisherman and a machinist it fulfilled both of my expectations.
We get views of machine tools that make, or made, some of the most coveted fly fishing stuff in the world.
Well worth the watch.
I was especially impressed with the gentleman who ties the mosst intricate tgraditional salmon flies by hand. And by hand I mean without a vise.

Years back i collected a bit of old fishing equipment, and had 3 or 4 Hardy fly reels, along with a quite old Hardy catalog, (can't remember the year, but i think no later than maybe 1930's.)
Found them at an auction sale.
