The rumours are TRUE – there are moves afoot to bring back Mr Crabtree’s amazing fishing experiences.

And Angler’s Mail plus our brilliant columnist John Bailey are involved in this exciting new project.

Our latest issue (pictured, cover-dated January 24) has a fond tribute to Mr Crabtree and his son Peter. The brilliant cartoons inspired John Bailey and generations of anglers.

But there is lots more to come, it involves TV – and you will be able to follow it all from its unique early stages via Angler’s Mail magazine.

Be sure to get the magazine issue on sale from Tuesday, January 31, 2012. Full details will be inside!
