Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

WHAT­EVER our taste in fish­ing shows, any series fea­tur­ing Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mor­timer is must-watch TV. Paul is a very good an­gler in­deed and en­joys his fish­ing, par­tic­u­larly for tench. In fact an episode in their new series is de­voted to them.

I know this for a fact be­cause I once had Mr Whitehouse as a guest on Tight Lines and we vis­ited an Ox­ford­shire es­tate lake to fish for them.

We dis­cov­ered that Terry Hearn was one of his an­gling he­roes so we had Tel show up and be wait­ing in his bivvy to sur­prise him. Terry did ex­actly that, catch­ing a 31lb 11oz carp lit­er­ally to or­der. Sadly, our cam­era team were stuck in traf­fic and didn’t make it.

None­the­less we had a great day’s fish­ing and laugh­ing, and the tench obliged grace­fully.
