The Book

We’ve published a brand new book called  ‘Fishing in the Footsteps of Mr Crabtree’.

Available to buy now, the book is sympathetic in style to the original ‘Mr Crabtree goes Fishing’ that made Mr Crabtree a national treasure and icon to millions of fishermen, written by TV presenter and author John Bailey, with brand new cartoon strips by super-talented illustrator and great angler, Rob Olsen.

Edited by Paula Battle and published under the Mr. Crabtree Publishing imprint the book is packed with fantastic images, tips and advice. It takes a modern look at angling and will bring alive the joy and passion all anglers feel when on the bank, pursuing their target fish and all of the action and excitement of hooking, playing and landing it.

The original book inspired millions of new anglers and this new book will be a modern angling classic for today’s angler, in turn inspiring a generation of  young anglers coming into the sport.

And for the collectors amongst you, we’ll be publishing Leather-bound and Vellum versions of the book soon, so if you’d like to be kept informed, sign up for our newsletter here.
