Bob has harboured a childhood dream to catch a salmon, so he and Paul set off for the River Tay in Scotland.

Bob has harboured a childhood dream to catch a salmon, so he and Paul set off for the River Tay in Scotland full of hope and excitement for this special trip.

A ghillie guides them up the intimidating river in a boat, and they fish using various methods to catch the elusive fish. They discuss luck and fate and the part it has played in their lives.

They stay in the heart of the highlands, where Bob cooks Paul a traditional Scottish breakfast and they set off for a swift round of golf before resuming their fishing.

As the sun sets they reflect on their dreams – did they come true on this trip?
