On the Beach

Pipe in mouth, rod in hand. What could be better for the Edwardian Angler? I am impressed by his outfit, including his boots. I can see he is fishing as the line is visible and taut. Unless, of course, his man servant is pulling on the fishing line, just out of shot? Not many people about, I notice. Where did he get that hat?

  1. Oh I do like the idea of the servant running around in the waves pulling on the line. For some fishing is merely contemplation and they don't care if they catch anything. This fellow just liked to look the part and his poor servant came home and flopped on the floor and it was left to his wife to clean him and put him away.
