Mr Crabtree and Peter – as they were. A new TV series will go in their footsteps…

ANGLER’S MAIL is charting the recording of a new tribute TV series to the legendary Mr Crabtree fishing cartoons.

The latest session is detailed by John Bailey, our brilliant magazine columnist.

Here, in another online bonus for you Mail fans, we bring you some bonus photos from the session where young Michael Leeming got his rod bent on some fine carp.

Be sure to follow John’s Thinking Angler every week in the magazine, for insight into the making of In The Footsteps of Mr Crabtree, and also lots of great fishing tips and fishing advice.


Early action for young Michael…


John’s in too as the carp show interest for their baits.


A few drinks for the cast and crew. Soft stuff only, you understand, for the youngest member of the cast!


Looks like these fellas are up for some floaters!


Caution is needed for everyone to avoid spooking ’em.


It’s in the can! Another successful and fascinating session is completed for this hard-working Crabtree project team.


Once again, it looks like a fun and productive session and another fine tribute to those classic famous Daily Mirror cartoons. Thanks to Toast Entertainment Group for these bonus photos!

VIDEO COMING SOON!! We will have a video from this Crabtree carp session online here soon.
