Improve Your Coarse Fishing

Even better value for money, Improve Your Coarse Fishing (IYCF) is now split in two separate publications that complement each other perfectly.

In the main ‘Improve’ you’ll find a new slant on modern fishing as they emphasise the great things about our sport and celebrate why we go angling. The best in fishing photography, more descriptive writing, longer features to let the pictures breathe and less hard core instruction have made the magazine a more relaxed read where every page reminds you how great fishing is. There’s now a  tackle section that has doubled in size and gives a lot more exposure to new kit hitting the market.

And the second part of the new IYCF is a section called Tips & Tactics – this is a technical, mechanical and explicitly ‘How To’ section that’s aimed solely at improving angler’s skills. Each issue contains expert instructional features on float, feeder, pole, carp and specialist fishing so, no matter what type of fishing the reader is interested in, there’s something to put into practice.

Here's a look at issue 249, on sale August 10th -  September 7th, 2011, courtesy of the 'Contents' page:
