Hmmm "barrage of tackle.." yet on the same page theres line ,"people we like" sorry to opinionated for me ,next the mag will be representing us in parliament as the voice of angling

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

Grangers law : anything i say will  turn out the opposite or not happen at all!

Chesters

The line on the web page states: "avoids the incessant barrage of tackle and tactics". as for the people we like this is just a pen profile of the contributing writers, nothing sinsiter in that.

But my point was 2 inches below that was a reference to chameleon line LOL

If it were the point of the writer "things we like" should be "things i like" ,i dont like that line so its the royal we i presume or he may have a split personality or the reader is being ganged up on by the writers ,do they all really like it (shock)

I have this nagging feeling someones trying to sell something ,i never fully trust things where you need to open an account ,paypal has all the info a seller needs to sell and deliver ,hopefully theres no home visits to see if your clean enough to buy something LOL

 

Hopefully it sells theres been some very good "traditional" type angling mags that have folded ,some go along the lines of anything goes and the reader only has interest in a bit of it so realises his money is spent on a great deal of something he has no interest in or the opposite it firmly concentrates on a narrow field alienating those that like other similar writings .not easy making money without adverts it will be interesting to see how it gets on.

Myself i gave up reading other peoples opinion it may interfere with mine LOL

 

I have grown into an old serial doubter ,my "err just a minute" or "is that so " and "thats not how i remember it" etc spoils things ,its the same with with so called "factual" films or documentaries, i pick holes until they fall apart and i realise i could have spent time reading fiction and enjoyed it as it doesnt matter whats written its fiction

 

PS 4lb chamelion wont pull a train and 10lb wont reel in the moon its a lie unless ofcourse a bottle of pussers has been on the rounds in which case it could be slightly true

Always the cynic Chesters, and there's a 50/50 chance that we wouldn't want you any other way :D

 

Personally I think £8 is money well spent for a quality periodical (calling it merely a magazine is doing it an injustice), one that doesn't hit you in the face with advertising and product placement on every page, or indeed anywhere! Also they have a crossword now, and one that is so much better than the pitiful thing they have in one of the angling mags ....

Careful - Waterlog's cruciverbalist is our very own Vagabond - and his crosswords are fiendish! Have 'taken' Waterlog since it first came out and Fallon's Angler is a worthy rival. Thankfully they appear to being issued 'out of sync' so I can expect some quality angling reading every 6 weeks landing on my doormat!

Crosswords ,damn if there was no crosswords i would have almost bought it ,i quite like traditional but in the mind ,if old stuff was good there would be no new stuff ,i do though draw the line at tweed and flannel and i hope they dont get caught in any pics using "traditional" knotted nets of any kind.

There are a couple of "traditional" forums one even has a latin name ,i may collect the past but hopefully i dont crave it or worse live in it in my head LOL

One even talks about intrepids (swoon)

8 quid or 2.5 pints of beer is good value today ,and once you have read it you can flog it on ebay unlike urine (well perhaps japan) and get some of the cost back

 

Not read an angling book for 20 years my collection is fairly big and some classics but bought in hope of making money and the last mag i read was lent to me by my head bailiff ,if you like adverts its a great buy you will find the odd bit of writing gets in the way though
