LOOKING for the perfect Father’s Day gift? Here’s a suggestion – a fishing book celebrating Mr Crabtree!
Just as a generation of anglers grew up learning to fish with Mr. Crabtree and Peter, now it’s possible to do the same again with this modern-day homage.
Budding anglers can follow Rob Olsen’s comic strips depicting John Bailey (an Angler’s Mail columnist) and a 21st Century Peter taking to the banks and fishing for all species. There are sections on knots, fish safety, carp rigs and methods and much more.
More able anglers will equally enjoy the strips and can compare notes with John as he reflects on his own fishing journey, infused with hints and tips and John’s own anecdotes taken from a 50 year angling crusade.
Fans on Crabtree and Bernard Venables and those who’d like to know more about the legacy will enjoy delving into the first section of the book, complete with photographs from the Venables’ private collection of Bernard doing what he does best.
This section also includes contributions from some of our angling royalty – Chris Yates, Hugh Miles, Terry Hearn, Kevin Clifford, Kevin Nash, Keith Elliot and Ali Hamidi on what Crabtree means to them.
It’s not to be missed! Just like the re-runs of the Mr Crabtree TV series this Sunday – yes, Father’s Day June 16th- on Quest. Full details in this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine.
