Welcome to the Cancer and Pisces Trust

We are a cancer charity that aims to enhance the lives of cancer sufferers through the therapeutic pastime of angling, helping them to connect with both the natural world and one another.

Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing

Mortimer & Whitehouse: Gone Fishing with Marina Gibson


"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"

Thanks to a kind donation from the Silver Ghosts book supporters, and in association with the Teenage Cancer Trust, we are delighted to be able to offer our fishing days to teenagers with cancer in 2023.


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.
