How do I tell Paul my cooking fire has spread to his car...

I was meant to bring the landing net...

Are you sure we're going to be fined for poaching? What do you mean it's last week I booked it for!

Paul, you know I said prunes are good heart food, I've just discovered they're good for filling your waders too...

Bob suddenly realises its the spare rod he's been standing on and not a branch crunching underfoot.

Bob, spots the cameraman eating a bacon sandwich and not the heart healthy falafel and bean wraps he'd prepared for them all .
Thats a great ghillie story but it can't be real. I mean there's no way someone's casting could be so bad that they hit on you on the head when you're sat so low behind them!
