We were off to Bilboa last weekend and I found my self with a book but no fishing magazine to read.
So I went upstairs and turned the pile of FF&FT upside down and found myself looking at January 2007. I guess I had chucked out a lot of the previous copies ( after ripping out some pages), any how what a lot of good articles there are in the old edition. Unlike the copy of Trout Fisherman Sad which had rubbish content.
There was a great easy tie sedge pattern, a mention of a young Bob Preston water keeper, the washing line technique, salmon netting in Ireland, bloody salmon farms and the start of a series of articles by Mr J on casting basics.
Also a couple of good river fishing articles, something I am getting interested in after my day on the Test.

So if you have a large pile of magazines and time on you hands it's well worth doing, just picked up February 2007 for a peak Very Happy
Good stuff

I have now reached August 2008.
Mark Bowler writing his First Cast introduction refers to the ban on returning fish after capture in Switzerland and a catch and kill policy being bought into force.
A quick search of the internet seems to suggest this is still in force and comments on some forums dated 2011 seems to suggest baron waters.
Is it still the case that all fish must be killed in Switzerland and Germany?

Turning the pile upside down has been a good use for old magazines with a lot of good articals rediscovered before I dispose of the old editions.
