John Bailey's technical talks caused the lads some amusement
"During the trots I would opt for the use of a closed face to help maintain some degree of control against unexpected and strong wind"

Image 1 - "never again will Bob and Paul miss a bite whilst practicing their chamber laughs, lesson learned"

Image 2 - "they had promised each other, with such conviction, that they would be on their best behaviour at the ball, and that there would be absolutely no inebriation and subsequent pants wetting..."

Bob's estimate of the size of pva bag needed, caused much hilarity.

Paul " Fishing is a serious business Bob and it doesn't help when you stand there cackling like a Hyena. I am standing here waiting to land your fish and I bet you don't even know where your float is!"

I've got my line wrapped around his tripod legs, should I pull for a break or strike as though I got a bite?

"Paul, it might have been that big, but how can you say it was your best ever fish if you didn't both measure 'and a-weigh' it....."

Paul and Bob are good friends. They like to go fishing together. Paul loves his fishing jacket that has lots of dangly things. They both love telling stories and laughing until it is time for their medicine.

The producer got distinctly miffed when the boys failed to follow instructions and suggested that they needed to smarten up. The following day he got his wish!

Bob struggles to convince Paul that the Gudgeon from waters around Windscale really are larger than average.
Image 2
Paul admits to Bob that he feels a bit silly having waded in without any form of disgorger.

Bob's habit of carrying "pocket meat" is a source of amusement to Paul. Even Bob gets the giggles when he recalls the size of blockwurst he carried in his pocket whilst walking round Hamburg.
Image 2
Paul soon realised that asking Bob to take the shot seriously, was doomed to failure.

Bob tries to give Paul a demonstration of "Jazz Hands", but gets a little lost.
Image 2
Desperate for it not to appear in shot, Paul skilfully conceals the hip flask behind his back.

Bob: Aren’t you gonna tell him, Paul?
Paul: What? That the boat just sunk?
Nah. Let’s just see how long it takes.
