It's around this time of year that we get a lot of emails from people seeking out the most appropriate magazines to buy subscriptions for, as they do make a pretty cool gift for anglers. Not only does the recipient get a copy of their magazine every week or month (reminding them how kind you were for buying them such a thoughtful present!), but they usually get a cracking free gift, too. What's more, you don't have to fight your way through a department store full of angry mothers to get your goodies – you can do it all with the click of a mouse!
And, if you're thinking of buying a magazine subscription for yourself, now's generally a good time to do so, as the gift quality seems to go up at this time of year. Personally, I like to look for the free clothing and luggage deals, but there are also often some good tackle offers up for grabs, too.
Here are a few examples of fishing magazines available in the UK. For further details about each one, please click on the links;
