Summary

Joining us at Audible Studios are Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse, lifelong friends, fans of fishing, and well-known comedians.  

When life got in the way of Mortimer and Whitehouse's friendship, they found their connection dwindled to occasional catch ups and one-off phone calls. Then, conveniently, they were both diagnosed with heart disease! And they realised life is short, and they should spend it together, doing what they love: fishing.  

Following the success of their BBC series, Gone Fishing, Mortimer and Whitehouse have created an audiobook of the same name, which is their love letter to the joys of angling and the simple wonder of just having a laugh with your mates.  

We spoke to Mortimer and Whitehouse about going off script to record the audiobook, how chatting about their health has got others talking, the importance of silence, wildlife loving Bob, Paul bumping into otters, the wisdom of Paul Daniels, Bob’s expertise on white goods...and the list goes on.

Perfect

I'm afraid that if you don't find this little snippet hugely enjoyable and uplifting then we can no longer be friends. Sorry.

This pair are the absolute best!

I could sit and listen to Bob and Paul all day. Absolutely love the series and over the moon a fourth is on the way. Their bond is so apparent throughout any interviews they do. A fantastic listen. I'm off to purchase the book!

A very revealing insight

A great background piece to go with the book. Definitely worth a listen. Very useful.

Great, but where's the book?!!

i really enjoyed this as i'm a big fan of these two guys. they're both very funny and have a meaningful reason for putting this tv show and book together - they both are recovering from treatment for heart disease.
At the end of this interview the announcer says the book is available for download but it isn't
(at least not in the usa) with there's no indication or information if it ever will be!
anything you can tell us Audible usa?

Great camaraderie

If you’ve watched the TV show then you’ll know what to expect here. Just 30 minutes whets the palette, but the Gone Fishing audiobook is not available!! What’s going on?
