    How carp got to Australia, plans for a UK angling museum (and one in the US for Mitchell too) plus the history of the world’s greatest day-ticket salmon fishing are among stories in the latest issue of Classic Angling. You’ll also find Hoagy B Carmichael talking about how he converted a Norwegian ghillie to catching salmon on dry-fly on the famed river Alta, plus the life and times of the Rev EC Alston, the man who held both the British tench and rudd records. Take a look at latest issue to find out more. But you need to subscribe to get the full thing! Why not buy it for someone (or yourself!) as a Christmas present?


    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.
