Product Description

Product Description

If you love the heritage and history of fishing you ll already know all about Mr. Crabtree. It s likely that you refer to Crabtree swims , that you know what a gentle is and that the idea of fishing in a tweed three-piece-suit doesn t really seem that odd to you.

If you re new to the Crabtree Crusade, then it s high time you joined John Bailey and his troop of protégées as they go Fishing in the Footsteps of Mr. Crabtree , combining old and new in perfect harmony to catch their quarry.

Experience with them the highs and lows of our great sport, taking in the misty dawns and the glorious sunsets, experiencing the thrill of the rod bend, the scream of the reels, and breathless anticipation as we wait to see what s going to be on the end of that line...

Format: DVD
Lovely series of fishing adventures with stunning scenery and great wildlife/action shots; have the series on Sky Plus anyway but this is even better without the ad breaks. John Bailey as 'Mr Crabtree' is a genial host and the kids are all just brilliant. Those of us who remember the 'original' Mr Crabtree book will watch this through misty eyes; those who watched the new series/bought the new book by the same name (which did a great job of gently 'modernising' the original) will be itching to be back on the bank. That's the fishing-mad godson's birthday sorted then.

Smashing, my only criticism of John is that as soon as one of the children hooks a fish, he jumps in, snatches the rod away from them and enjoys the fight, with the poor youngster looking on, depriving the poor kid from enjoying what it's all about, bit greedy I thought (to be fair he doesn't do it all the time, but it was noticeable) sorry John, otherwise quite a lovely viewing

This DVD is a celebration of the British countryside and wildlife, as much as an angling series. Bernard Venables' classic comes alive again with John Bailey the expert angling presenter, and 6 lots of aspiring "Peters" Charming and exciting at the same time, these films bring back what it was like to be a boy, catching monster fish all those years ago. Lovely stuff.

I really enjoyed this and I thought John Bailey was perfect as Mr Crabtree. I really liked the soundtrack also plus the superb filming at first light. I thought the young man fishing the lakes was the most enthusiastic and I think the two girls might take to fishing also, they didn't strike me as being young anglers to be honest.

I bought this for my dad for father's day. Originally I planned on getting him the Compleat Angler. This was a great choice for my fly fishing nut of a dad. I popped it in to preview with my kids. It is mellow and takes some patience, but even my children 4-8 yrs. fell instantly in love with it. Watching this program leaves you feeling peaceful. As if you've just taken a serene walk through nature. I recommend for grandparents, grandchildren, fisher people and nature lovers.

I really like this set of fishing films, and I like John Bailey aswell. I'd like to go fishing with him myself, but the films are very well made and they are the kind that I could watch over and over again.

Nice idea and as I read these as a child I enjoyed the shows, 6 in all
Not as good as Catching the Impossible with Bernard Cribbins but enjoyable just the same
