The cover of my copy of Trout Fisherman actually says it is on sale between December 23rd, 2010 – January 11th, 2011, but I’m going to stick my neck out here and say that I think it’s supposed to say the 21st!
Trout Fisherman magazine will fulfil your tackle, instruction and where to fish needs. If you’re into still-water fly fishing, it’s a must read, comprehensively covering techniques to catch even more fish, with detailed, informative and friendly advice.
