  • Don't worry about running aground; just make it look like you are holding against the current and the viewers will never know!
  • Unbeknown to the three men in a boat Nessie junior was circling the bow
  • There were three in the boat, and the little one spoke, row over, row over and they all rowed over, and then fell out when one was bumped on the head and gave a shout...row over, row over...
Row Row Row your boat gently down the stream,
Merrily Merrily Merrily Merrily,
A Salmon's but a dream.

1. The Junction Angling Goats
2. Do you have a hanky'? I'm feeling quite emotional
Paul ducks down to avoid being hooked by Bob's back cast - The Ghillie had to give Bob a 'stern' warning !!

Paul - I'm telling you Bob if you twerk as the fly swings round it puts that little bit of action into the fly and the Salmon go mad for it.
Now, look you two, I'm only taking you down this pool, then I'm off.

I've got a dinner party to go to!

Making a T.V. series about angling, is a bit of a hand to mouth existence!

Barnaby, got fed up with his job in Kelso council as a clerk.

He just walked out, and luckily walked straight into another job as ghillie
on the Tweed.

He vowed to buy a fishing jacket with his first wage!

When somebody told Paul that a lot of people troll on this forum --- He obviously misunderstood!

Is he alright up there?
Paul: Yeah, he thinks he's surfing.
Ghillie: Ok, then... if you're sure.
Paul: 'course I'm sure. Anyway, he's insured.
Ghillie: Really? How much for? That's if you don't mind me asking?
Paul: Don't know offhand. A few million, at least. Why?
Ghillie: Well... thing is, I'm retiring soon. And this is an old boat, so... I thought...
Paul: Murder him?
Ghillie: Oh, no. NO!!! We could just, erm... divvy up between the three of us?
Paul: I like your thinking, but he's a mate of mine. He's like a brother.
Ghillie: Yeah? Oh, right. Yeah, of course he is. Forget I mentioned it.
Paul: Mentioned what?
Ghillie: Cheers, Paul. You're a proper geyser. Real old school.
