Once upon a time people made things with their hands, beautiful, intricate items like cane fishing rods and exotic salmon flies. One company did this best and were loved the world over; Hardy's fishing tackle was adored by royalty, maharajas and film stars alike. Their attention to detail and quality brought fulfillment and pride to a work place where whole generations of families worked together. Now this has all but gone and we live in a world of mass production, globalization and outsourcing. But do we miss those days? Is there something special about the pride and feel of the handmade that reflects a deeper need in our everyday life?
