Description

It is the comic strip story of a father who takes his son Peter on a series of angling adventures over the course of a year, fishing for a variety of species along the rivers and lakes of Britain. Theirs was a mobile sport, filled with discovery, wonder and piscatorial good fortune – A Crabtree never blanks!

John Bailey takes a new 'Peter' under his wing teaching him everything he needs to know to catch all the main coarse species using a mixture of traditional and modern techniques and tactics. The method that JohnH describes is known as a Nottingham cast and is absolutly fine until you are required to cast any sort of real distance, that is when you wish you had learned to Wallis/Avon cast. The Royalty remains one of the most popular and prolific Barbel fisheries in England, although amazingly The Hampshire Avon in it's lower reaches does contain more than one species! Crabtree is what we’re all about – and our book and TV series of the same name are the first steps we’ve taken to illustrate this.Fly fishing is the one that caught me and for several years in my teens, my Dad and I would nip off in the caravan for a weekend on a fly-blown river or lake. Henry from Devon and John fish numerous lakes, deploying different methods and tactics depending on the environment and enjoying the natural world as they fish for all species. I've been on a kick recently to try different types of vintage plugs, last year I gave the Flatfish a go and what do you know, they still work! You learn the difference between bottom and top fishing, the weight of tackle for different fish and circumstances. It is the comic strip story of a father who takes his son Peter on a series of angling adventures over the course of a year catching species such as chub, pike, carp, roach, tench and trout, on rivers and lakes.

And is that advantage only related to maximizing the functional aspects of the gear available at the time (cane rod/centerpin reel) such that there is no need for the technique with a modern rod and spinning or casting reel?This first series saw presenter John Bailey, [4] an internationally renowned fishing guide, fishing and walking in the footsteps of his angling hero, Mr.

It’s always difficult to re-create something as special as Mr Crabtree Goes Fishing and yet they have pulled it off quite extraordinarily. Team Crabtree have almost re-invented the wheel with this insightful, beautifully written and delightfully illustrated modern masterpiece.

Brief contributions from Hannah Bruford (Bernard Venables' daughter), Hugh Miles, Chris Yates, Pat O'Reilly, Terry Hearn, Kevin Nash, Kevin Clifford, Ali Hamidi and Keith Arthur. Crabtree explains what cast to use, but what I'm wondering is why was that casting technique advantageous? Mr Crabtree fishes for all species of coarse fish - tench, barbel, carp, chub, perch and pike - as well as trout and grayling.

I think to completely safeguard your offspring's heritage you should purchase a complete set of Bernard Venables' 'Lets Go Fishing with Mr Cherry and Jim' books ASAP, I know they are expensive but it's always better to be safe than sorry! I had another look at my copy of Crabtree at the weekend and particularly the "plugs for pike" chapter. Anyway, being errrr, well, near 40, some of the techniques and tackle used in the book both predate me and/or they are different techniques than the men who thought me how to fish ever used. INSCRIPTION ON REVERSE OF FRONT COVER PRESENTING THIS BOOK TO FORMER OWNER, OTHERWISE IN VG CONDITION.So it is that Bernard Venables left his mark on us all, even those that perhaps aren’t that familiar with his writings.
