I've enjoyed the show since the first one series one its nice to see a fishing program that isn't all about fishing, having a banging lifestyle and the sell. Relaxing easy to watch no technicals on which rig, setup or casting distance. Sundays one if it was the one about Rudd was enjoyable away from the beaten track and his face when he thought he had caught a new unknown species, the Ruff, was brilliant.

I enjoy the other upbeat programs but this is almost on a different level and they don't take themselves or the fishing to seriously.




And away

wonderful to watch, a joy to see two blokes just enjoying angling for what it should be. A far cry from carp angling these days in so many ways

So glad this series got the green light again, though both the wife and I said Sundays wasn't really as enjoyable as others so far!

Watched a couple of these now, loved the Lake District one, spent a bit of time up there over the years and it was nice to see the Norfolk broads, never been, nice place to stay the windmill and as for Rudd, big ones, one of my favourite fish, stunning. Great show that portrays fishing how it should be more me, relaxing, at one with nature and good times with friends, brilliant.

If Iím honest though, would it appeal to the youth, grandads go fishing

Cracking show though for me

I only started watching this after reading this thread and seeing it was on iPlayer, thanks whoever mentioned that. I downloaded a few and watched some down the lake last weekend and a few more this. One of my favourite fishing programmes already and thoroughly enjoyable, I smiled throughout. Canít wait to watch the rest.

They remind me of my Dad and his friend, 2 mates occasionally catching something and having a proper laugh while fishing, just how it should be.

Couldn't agree more. However never ask Bob to net a fish for you. Disaster written all over it.

Absolutely

The episode with the heart surgeon in it was quite brilliant

A reminder that for a lot of us, fishing isn't about 'whackers' and trophy shots.

I havenst started the latest series yet, but think it needs remembering there is a serious reason why Bob started fishing with Paul in the beginning . They had both had heart surgery and Paul in particular struggled with the life changes needed and recuperation and became quite depressed. I believe it was Pauls idea to introduce him to fishing to get him out of the house and help improve his mental health. As much as Bob plays the fool, the episode where he visited his childhood home was very moving and some of the conversations thru the different series are quite profound .... Its far more than just a fishing show imo.

Yes I remember them. Just goes to show, it's not the rod that catches the fish.

I'm almost certain that I had the blue rod that Bob got out of the car at the start of the episode! My first rod I believe!

still loving this show

not trying to big themselves up / sell me anything / get one over on some other angler or company.

great mates linked by overcoming some very serious health issues and of course, similar careers.

of course Bob is daft - that's part of the show. and part of his persona too.

given the choice of 'angling' tv presenters, i know who i'd most like to fish with...

He could have gone over just trying to stand up as we know!

Not trying to pick holes in it, I'm sure they were surrounded by support boats and other people, just a bit of an oversight along with the unhooking mat imo.
