Video: Bromance alert! The figure skater searches for the perfect bling for a Black Sea fishing expedition with the “Access Hollywood” host.

Billy Bush and former Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir had some extra time on their hands while covering the Winter Games in Sochi and decided to spend their downtime doing exactly what you would not expect: fishing in the Black Sea. 

For figure skater-turned-NBC-commentator Johnny Weir, the first course of action before any fishing trip is to go through his wardrobe and find the perfect outfit.
