Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing
"Anyone who has watched 'Gone Fishing' will know that we're both great believers in the health benefits of angling. When we heard about Marina and Mick's plans for a fishing club for cancer sufferers we wanted to hear more and invited them to join us for the day. We loved meeting them both and we wish them and their wonderful charity every success"
About the book
Life is confusing for Aberdeen teenager Callum Anderson as he drifts through the lockdown summer of 2020. With exams cancelled and activities restricted, the aimless days and late, drunken nights all merge. When Callum’s behaviour puts the family dog at risk, his mother compels him to do something more productive with his time, forcing him to join a fly-fishing course on the banks of the beautiful river Dee. Callum is soon absorbed by a new passion and finds himself drawn to someone he unexpectedly meets there. Igniting a bond with his grandfather in their pursuit of the king of fish, he discovers how life is connected and how a legacy can live on.
