There can be few anglers brought up in the 50s and 60s who have not been formatively influenced by Mr Crabtree. The cartoon character created by Bernard Venables was the very personification of the perfect fisher-father. Every boy dreamed of being in Peter's boots, of being taken to the riverbank, to a pre-baited swim, to fish for "Glass-Case" specimens with this master angler. These experiences are as real and relevant to today's angler as they were when Mr Crabtree first appeared in the Daily Mirror, and later in book form in "Mr Crabtree goes fishing" (1950). Apart from new cover artwork, this edition is published entirely in its original form with no changes to text or illustration.
