Radio and TV personality Ben Fordham's recent fishing trip turned into a hilarious search and retrieve mission after a mishap ended with him knee-deep in water.
The 2GB radio host was fishing on a pier with his family when a gust of wind blew a $50 note from his pocket and straight into the water.
"What about this? Fifty bucks flew out of my pocket and into the water," the 44-year-old said in an Instagram video. "But I will get it back, mark my words. I will get it."
Luckily for Fordham, the tide swept the note closer to shore, close enough for him to walk amid the shallows — albeit with a stick in hand — to retrieve it.
"That's where I lost the 50 bucks," he said in the video, as he panned the camera from the pier to the riverbank. "Come on, baby. Come to me, come to me."
Fordham's 2GB Money News colleague Brooke Corte shared a clip of the incident on Twitter, joking, "Money News Exclusive Footage @BenFordham goes fishing and catches $50."https://twitter.com/brookecorte/status/1346666577895165953
Indeed, the mission turned out to be a success and Fordham was quickly reunited with his money.
"And ladies and gentleman, with a stick … catch of the day!" he said of his retrieval mission, while triumphantly holding up the note. Watch the video above for move.
So he had better spend his $50 wisely, right?
"What will I spend it on?? Maybe a new fishing rod?" the Australian Ninja Warrior host tells 9Honey Celebrity. "On second thoughts I'm going to buy a bottle of wine and some fish and chips."
After his efforts, he deserves it!
