    Default Mr Crabtree returns to TV

    It's on Sky Sports now though rather than Shed. For those that miss it, or don't do Sky, it's also available on the website after it has aired on telly.

    Mr. Crabtree Goes Fishing – Episode 1

    Probably not the greatest fishing TV ever, but it is fishing on TV and it's not Robson Green! If you want split cane, centrepins and peacock quills, I'd suggest you don't watch it.

    Thanks for posting that Sam, I've not got Sky and will watch it via the link.

    I quite enjoyed the previous series and have been looking forward to this one coming around... I hope they keep the microphones well away from that damn ratchet this time

    I wont be watching it, i found the first series the most creepy thing i have watched in a long time...

    John Bailey came over like some kind of predatory groomer...

    then there was the fact that almost every time one of the kids hooked into a fish he completely took over, grabbing the rod off the them etc...

    NO NO NO...

    Despite my gut feeling, I did watch the first series, I won't bother with this second one though. In an effort to be polite all I will say is that Mr Bailey runs no risk of being upstaged by the young 'uns, ''he'll see to that''.

    Managed to watch the programme today while my grandaughter was sleeping and have to say I horoughly enjoyed it!

    I missed all the first series so I'm coming to this completely new and as far as I'm concerned JB does an excellent job, mind you I like Robson Green's programme so I may be out on my own with this!

    I suspect that the criticism of him grabbing the rod in the first series was noted. In this episode, he hands the kid the rod on more than one occasion. I can only recall JB landing one fish himself.

    The format is a little different too. Rather than different kids every week, it's following JB and one kid on different trips over a full summer. The bairn is patently not a complete novice.

    I have just watched it via the supplied link, thanks for that. I really do think Mr Crabtree should get a bigger landing net, I mean what would happen if he hooked one of Lord Paul's old skool chums?

    I haven't watched it and I wont. Mr Crabtree was a nice old chap with a pipe and a macintosh who wore galoshes......not some wandering hippy poet.

    Never go back.
