    What is the general opinion of Match Fishing magazine price rise.

  • #2
    Most of the mags are overpriced! I used to buy a years and resurrect them each month in the subsequent year! Don't even do that now! I find the annual subscription which I've pegged for rthe Midland Angler best value for me in the Midlands!

      I subscribe to Match fishing, but i will not be once its run out. Its too expensive and full of adverts, i counted 85pages of adverts in 1 of the magazines. again i think the angler gets ripped off

        i've stopped subscribing my biggest gripe is being a silver fish angler it doesn't provide me with what i want it is carp carp carp.and the sponsored articles are a joke. and the reviews on poles are laughable. they daren't call it as it is for fear of losing advertising revenue. i looked at an article on punch fishing from the magazine 6 years ago nothing has changed same hooks diameters etc just different faces.sooner get a pint of casters.

          Would it be a fair assumption that these magazines would be more suited to the novice rather than the experience angler even though everyone of us are always hunting for a way to get an edge on everyone else?. Does that make sense. Anyway for those that have been round the block before, you should know by now that their,s always been a load of chaff amongst the wheat.

            Well sorry but I must disagree with you all !
            The price of the Mag is around the same you pay for a pint and half of maggots ? The ads help fund the Mag and since my return to wetting a line I have found it to be a good read with articles on canals and rivers however the bias is towards carp match angling is just a reflection on how many people fish that style week in week out.
            I would like to read more about the art of stick float fishing but wouldn't mind betting half of the commercial lads wouldn't know how to attach one to a line !
            Overall I'd give it a 8.5 out of 10 Always room for improvement Mr Harrell

                    Who needs modern tackle eh lads

                    So your all still using fiber glass poles, cork or crow quill floats,wicker creels and bent pins for hooks ? Ahh them were the days kids today don't know their born
                    Now I agree that no amount of top gear will make up for lack of skill and water craft but lets not get carried away.
                    Adequate fit for purpose tackle is also necessary I'm looking to upgrade my 10year old Daiwa connoisseur that groans every time I hook a decent fish does that make me a tackle tart ?
                    Anyway thought we started talking about fishing magazines ?

                          spose its ok if yer like fishin mud puddles like Moorlands ,that gets a bit of publicty in the mag ,an if you do your used ter gettin ripped off so the price of Match Fishing magazine wont worry you.

                              Innovations are born out of mans almost instinctive need to creat and improve his situation, The angling press only serves to bring these innovations in the angling world to our attention but theirs a cost. Some of us seek information other than new tackle which as far as i,m concerned is sadly lacking. If you,re a tackle tart however you must be in Hog Heaven. Glossy pictures wont improve my angling. Inccidentaly i,ve noticed it does take a fair amount of time for these new all singin all dancin products to make general distribution but thats digressing. If you,re satisfied with what you,re paying for and you,re getting "value for money" thats great. But what the magazines offer me in terms VFM falls a long way short.
