    by  • April 8, 2013 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    The acclaimed new series Fishing in the Footsteps of Mr Crabtree is being repeated on satellite television stations from tomorrow (April 9). You can watch it on Quest at midday every Tuesday. Talks are still going on about the series going to Sky and even possibly to Channel 4. There are also high hopes that an announcement will be made shortly about a second series being commisisoned. Those waiting for leather copies of the new book will probably have to wait until October,  we learn. The people behind the series are running a competition that offers £100 of prizes, including the book and various items of clothing. Entry is via the website and closes on April 30.


    Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. I wrote a weekly angling column for The Independent for 23 years, having previously written columns for The Guardian and Sunday Mirror. If it swims, I'll fish for it: marlin or mackerel, trout or tench, salmon or snook. I've written several books on fishing, from one for the Duke of Edinburgh's award to the notorious Catchmore Sharks (don't look at the pictures) and Bob Nudd's autobiography, How to be the World's Best Fisherman. I love exotic travel for fishing (been to Mongolia and Ecuador, the Great Barrier Reef and Arunachal Pradesh) and wish I could afford to do such trips more often. My favourite fish? Anything with fins, though I have a special love for mahseer, and I'm chairman of The Mahseer Trust.
