    "Mr Cherry and Jim" - Angling Times strip cartoon from 1953 onwards. SIX books published by Angling Times featuring these two characters

    1/Fishing for Pike 1961
    2/Fishing for Roach 1961
    3/ Fishing for Perch 1962
    4/Fishing for Trout 1962
    5/ Lets go fish No 1 (For tench, barbel, bream and carp)1964
    6/ Lets go fishing No 2 (For Grayling, rudd, dace and chub)1964

    Mr Cherry and Jim were different, later, books to Mr Crabtree although along similar lines. There are 4 in the series: pike, perch, roach and trout. They're all very scarce and highly sought after,

    There were several impressions, but the most sought after are the ones with full colour covers. Most of them had just a single/two cover colour, i.e. blue, black and white.
