Gone Christmas Fishing 2021: Paul takes Bob on a steam train to the north of England to search for a prized English salmon. Alongside their canine companion, Ted, they fish the rivers Eden and Tyne in search of for their elusive quarry. 

They stay in a glorious manor house, where Bob prepares a mighty breakfast of craster kippers, and then in a beautiful old castle, where Bob gives Paul a present which is as emotional as it is surprising. 

They are joined on the riverbank by Paul Gascoigne, who has also always dreamt of catching a salmon, and Dr Anand Patel has a chat with Bob about how to look out for the vulnerable at Christmas time. 

At the annual work party, Gone Fishing’s employee of the year is revealed, and musical entertainment is provided by Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott, ensuring a memorable night.
