    A museum that has put 17 world record carvings up for sale, an insider’s analysis of what the future holds for Hardy and the first attempt to unravel the complicated involvement of the Malleson family in the New York tackle trade are among the stories in the latest issue of Classic Angling. There’s also a look at floats around the world and the hidden stories that these seemingly insignificant pieces of tackle carry. But remember: you can only get these articles by subscribing!

    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.
