• Our Book Reviews

    by  • February 10, 2013 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    All the book reviews published in Classic Angling for the past year are now available on this site free. We aren’t worried about offending publishers, which means you get a fair and honest review, rather than saying every book is wonderful. So if you’re looking to buy a fishing book, take a look to see if we’ve reviewed it. If we’ve said it’s not worth the postage, you’d probably be wise to save your money.


    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.
