Episode Nine - Sal's Big Fish Story



True Story with Hamish & Andy returns with all new episodes on Channel Nine. 

In each half-hour episode, Hamish and Andy meet one regular Australian storyteller who recounts their amazing, surprising, funny and above all true story, which is simultaneously recreated by a cast of Australia’s most renowned performers.

In Episode Nine, Eighteen-year-old Sal (16 at time of story) is a laidback coastal teenager who loves fishing. He goes out with friends, family and even his teachers. His calm and practical nature makes him very popular around the small beachside town of Scotts Head, where everyone knows everyone.

One fateful Saturday morning while fishing out at sea, Sal reels in a whopping 30kg Spanish mackerel with his friend, schoolteacher and fishing partner, Joycey. Triumphant and proud, Sal takes it home that night and enjoys it with his family. As Sal puts it, “Mum cooked it up real good”. A few hours later, however, things turn south ... VERY south and the tiny local hospital, with a single nurse on duty, is certainly not ready for the carnage that is to follow.
