Billy Connolly, Fishing a mountain loch TV portrais.

Post by Mr B »

It was nice to see Billy Connolly with his pals fishing a mountain loch in Scotland.
He said he took a more traditional approach using a split bamboo rod.
The program was basically about a poet and fiends but there was dome lovely scenery too.
I enjoy seeing the other side to some of our celebrities that we have come to know over the years.
I took a few snaps.. TV Portraits!

The close season is an important and interesting time for the Angler who set out to catch big fish. It is a timely opportunity for him to make new tackle or renovate old. There are no end of jobs to do, apart from those horrible things called Gardens!

I think this is from an older program. He's a man that's lived life to the full.

…. and then some! An example to us all. Though every time I think of him or see his picture I burst out laughing over a joke I heard him tell years ago: about two Scotsmen in Rome, Crème de Menthe and the Pope!

I have absolutely nothing against the man and I may well be in the minority, but I have never found his brand of humour to be funny........

The two Scotsmen in Rome - is that the one about the sedan chair?
