This film from Eddie Morris captures the atmosphere of an angler's outing to Turner's Hill, West Sussex. We begin with members loading their tackle onto the coach, which takes them to the venue. On arrival, the fishing begins. Every fish caught is kept in a keep net. Eddie also manages to film the lake’s pretty surroundings. After a relaxing day’s fishing the contented anglers reel in their catches for the weigh-in before returning to Eastbourne onboard the same coach.
