    Since the passing of Dick Walker and Peter Stone the race is on between all those who aspire to become anglings next elite.

    To most non- anglers I've met 'Laughing Boy' is already on the throne with Jeremy Wade on his rights and side. Both are clean, tidy, intelligent with a high degree of angling knowledge, more importantly they are non threatening in their manner and attitude.

    Crabtree was a cartoon character invented by an angler of modest skill but a good eye for a business opportunity.
    JB portrays Crabtree to be more understanding of the young anglers pleasure rather than his own, something Crabtree was not, and someone who gains a genuine excitement from his young charges successes, the Perch fishing episode a case in point.

    As an ex-teacher JB is doing the programme makers, the young anglers in his care, and all of us a great service.
    Keep up the good work JB.
    (No axe to grind, never met him or read any of his books, just a personal opinion after 60years beside the water).

    Personally I think John Bailey is a fictional character, or certainly his works are.

    A few weeks ago JB published in the Angling Times about his programs. He accepts there were mistakes but, also explains that some were unavoidable through the way the programs were made and the fact he was filming with very young people. For instance, he had the whole family's of these youngsters in the background looking on. So, fair do's to him.

    Every one hates him because he is on the telly and they are not. Simples
