Flyfishing’s place in the wider universe

From a review of World Cup Cortinas in When Saturday Comes:

“In 1970, the Ford Motor Company loaned every member of the England World Cup squad a car ahead of the forthcoming Mexico World Cup. With the exception of Jack Charlton – who requested a Ford Zodiac because he needed a bigger boot [trunk] for his fishing tackle – they each received a Cortina 1600E.”
