Lifelong friends and comedic royalty Paul Whitehouse and Bob Mortimer have more in common than just their love of laughter – on a more serious note, they have both suffered complex heart disease.
Paul is an experienced fisherman, Bob, a complete novice. Paul thought a tour of the country’s finest fishing spots might help Bob’s recovery, and along the way maybe they’d learn something about each other.
In this funny and poignant new six-part series, we eavesdrop on their expedition as they re-connect with each other and share their personal experiences of life, while testing the parameters of true friendship.
