When I was a youngster, which isn't as long ago as my kids seem to think, I often used to buy fishing magazines just to see what tackle offers were about. Many people still do, so the 'What Gear 2011' guide included in this month's Trout Fisherman (TF) will certainly prove popular with those people, I'm sure.
Here's a look at what's inside the main magazine, courtesy of the 'Inside...' page:
