Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing – 6 September 2020 – 6/9/2020 – Sunday – BBC Two

Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing Series 3 Episode 3 of 6

Paul and Bob head to Norfolk and attempt to ensnare a big pike – something that has eluded them so far on their fishing trips. They netted a decent-sized pike in Northern Ireland, but there are bigger and better still to be caught.

Fishing for pike means they are lakeside for this episode, under the big skies of East Anglia. As they arrive and get their gear together, Bob introduces Paul to the surprisingly varied contents of his car boot, much to Paul’s amusement. They gather their equipment and find a decent spot that should give them plenty of chances to catch and make camp for the day.

They cast out and then settle in to sit and wait for the pike to bite. They are a fearsome fish, the apex predator of the lake, and coming face to face with a giant pike is not for the faint hearted, which leads Paul and Bob to ruminate on what keeps them up at night and how the things they worry about change as they get older.

For lunch, Bob has decided against his usual style of cooking and presents Paul with some army ration packs – contents unknown. Bob simply adds hot water, leaves them to heat up and then serves. Paul gamely gives it a go, but whether the meal is successful enough to become a permanent fixture is anyone’s guess.

Bob has chosen a suitably quirky place to stay – a cosy little house converted from an old public toilet block, right on the seafront on the north Norfolk coast. The weather is wild and dramatic, and in the morning before they go fishing, Paul and Bob have a running race on the beach, battling against the wind and rain.

They then resume their quest for monster pike, with conversation turning to the challenges in life that still lie ahead. They end their trip with a visit to a local pub, where Bob reveals a hidden trick.
