Improve Your Coarse Fishing – Contents & FREE ROD Offer

Even better value for money, Improve Your Coarse Fishing 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.
