Description

Fishermen indulge their passion for deep sea and river bank angling in this vivid footage.

This footage highlights the variety of fishing experience available in Northern Ireland. There is sea angling off Donaghadee and coarse fishing amidst a number of scenic landmarks and backdrops, not least Bangor and Enniskillen. The fishermen demonstrate the techniques of their sport and proudly display their catch.

 

Notes

These colourful rushes are amongst a wealth of footage that was generated by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.  This government department had their own staff who documented the region through stills and moving images and the films they created capture various facets of life in Northern Ireland. The department was particularly busy in the mid-1950s to late 1960s, creating films that aimed to sell Northern Ireland as a holiday destination. This material captures Northern Ireland at an interesting time, post-World War Two and pre-Troubles.
