Paul Whitehouse and Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing consultant John Bailey have been devout fishermen for longer than they care to remember.

A hobby, pastime or sport – call it what you want – they have felt the pull of the water ever since they were kids and have never missed the chance to set up on the bank and try their luck.

Now the two fishermen are going on tour to mark the publication of their new book How We Fish – The Love, Life and Joy of the Riverbank.

The duo will visit G Live in Guildford on November 4 at 7.30pm, and the ticket price includes a copy of their book.

Paul and John will celebrate the rich tapestry of fishing – from mentors to memories, philosophy to modern jargon and watercraft to becoming self-styled ‘fishing detectives’.

Punctuated by brilliant stories and recollections from fishing day trips past, How We Fish is the perfect way to spend an autumn evening in the theatre – warm, funny and rich in the wonders of the riverbank.

Paul is co-star of the BBC show Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing alongside his old friend Bob Mortimer. John Bailey has been fishing consultant on the show since it first aired in 2018.
