Biography » other artists entretainers » keith arthur


Keith Arthur presents ‘Fisherman’s Blues’ on Talksport Radio every weekend between 6 and 8 a.m. I have to admit to not being in the least interested in angling, but I find that there’s nothing better after a very late night than sipping a cup of strong tea and listening to Keith Arthur. Not really ‘listening’ - just background wallpaper!


This morning (19 December 2004) however a couple of things Keith said did make me sit up a bit. The first was a reference, that I will paraphrase, that they should cut off the testicles of polluters; and the second was a phrase that I hadn’t heard before (no doubt people will tell me that it is very common) - referring to the height of a great fisherman who had recently passed away, Keith Arthur said:


“He would have to stand on a tanner to see over a thruppenny-bit”


Keith Arthur also presents Tight Lines, Sky Sports’ angling show.


Keith Arthur started fishing at four years of age. From 1990 to 2002 Keith wrote a column for the Angling Times.
