Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing: Life, Death and the Thrill of the Catch by Bob MortimerTWO COMEDY GREATS TALK LIFE, FRIENDSHIP AND THE JOYS OF FISHING...
Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse have been friends for 30 years, but when life intervened, what was once a joyous and spontaneous friendship dwindled to the odd phone call or occasional catch up. Then, Glory Be! They were both diagnosed with heart disease and realised that time is short. Theyd better spend it fishing...
So they dusted off their kits, chucked on their waders and ventured into the achingly beautiful British countryside to fish, rediscover the joys of their friendship and ruminate on some of lifes most profound questions, such as: How did we get so old? Where are all the fish? What are your favourite pocket meats? What should we do if we find a corpse?
Following the success of the BBCs Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing series, this wonderful book by two lifelong friends is a love letter to the joys of angling, the thrill of the catch and the virtue of having a right daft laff with your mates. On the fish, the equipment, the food, and the locations, Gone Fishing is the perfect book for fans of Bob Mortimer, Paul Whitehouse and for anyone who wants to read a brilliantly written and endlessly funny joint memoir on life, friendship and joys of fishing.

Mortimer and Whitehouse: Gone Fishing review – they've caught a real beauty
B ob caught a bass! A five-pound bass, a smasher! The show has the same format as The Trip : two comics, slightly exaggerating their real selves, trade banter in various spectacular settings. They fish to help each other get over treatment for nearly fatal heart problems: three stents for Whitehouse and a daunting triple bypass for Mortimer. Mortality hangs over this surreptitiously emotive series, wherever it travels. The first was something silly: a shot in episode two of Whitehouse walking away and leaving Mortimer alone.
As their delightful series Gone Fishing returns, we asked old mates Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer to tell us four things each of them has learned from the other Two old blokes chewing the fat while fishing hardly sounds like unmissable TV. Those who caught series one of Gone Fishing will know that this is not just for fishing aficionados, nor is it all larking about, since the pair, both in their 60s, touch on serious subjects such as health problems and growing old, as well as making each other, and the viewers, laugh a lot. We caught up with old mates Paul and Bob ahead of the new series to ask them what they had learned from each other over the years. This is what they told us…. I have to give Paul a big thank you for changing that.
