Ice Fishing With The Cranes
20 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

In my opinion, this is one of the best episodes of Frasier.

In this episode, all that Frasier wants is to hear Martin say 'I love You' to him, but trying gets him to join him and Niles ice fishing after Martin's friend Duke opts out, afterwards the Crane v. Crane rivalry begins!

Niles has some funny one liners, along with Frasier. But the end result of the bickering is better than itself

Go watch and you'll be hooked on the Ice Fishing parts
