    Stuck for a Christmas present? Why not give a year’s subscription to Classic Angling to someone? They’ll get many things that web readers don’t have access to. Just take a look at the back issues to see how vast our coverage is, whether you’re a collector, interested in the history of fishing, want to learn more about exotic locations or just enjoy a good read. Our articles range from record great whites caught from a beach in South Africa to Castro and Che Guevara fishing together in Hemingway’s tournament off Cuba; the definitive article on all the gold-plated Mitchell 300s; the founder of Scouting Robert Baden-Powell and his fishing exploits: these are typical of our content. We’ve got articles on the first fishing match, the start of striped bass fishing Malleson reels coming up. This is stuff you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll hear about books before they’re published, learn about what’s coming up at auction and read about some of the greatest undiscovered places in the world to go fishing. (Our latest issue, for example, has an article by Hoagy Carmichael on catching Alta salmon on a dry fly, and we’ve covered Mongolian taimen, Himalayan mahseer, alligator gar in Texas and goliath tigerfish on the Congo.) There are  regular columnists like John Bailey and Judith Head. What are you waiting for? Just click on the Subscribe link above, and if it’s for a Christmas present, we’ll even send a special card if you let us know.


    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.
