Going back to the nineties, I and two others used to fish for him on a charter boat in Essex. He would sit in the cabin while the three of us fished for Smoothhounds. When "Fish On" was called out he would come and take over. We would then disappear into the cabin while he brought the fish on board in front of the cameras.

We obviously had a days free fishing and if we were lucky, an invitation to join him on a future "Shoot".

"Thanks lads, see you on the next trip." A miserable tight fisted old B****r.

I would prefer to say that I am British rather than European.
