J R Harley Casts Again – a great gift for the fly fisherman/woman

jr hartley casts againc j hartleyWe now stock both books written by fictional author J R Hartley played by actor Norman Lumsden in the famed yellow pages adverts shown in 1983.

They are a perfect gift for the fly fisherman or woman.


When Norman Lumsden (J R Hartley) passed away in 2001 at the age of 95, the ad was broadcast again in his memory, some 20 years after its first appearance.

Then In February 2011 Yell, the yellow pages company, ran an advertising campaign featuring a fictional DJ-  Day V Lately who like J R Hartley was searching for his lost work, only this time it  was for a copy of his  trance remix Pulse and Thunder.
