Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Letters -

■ Ian Alexan­der – Stick to trout fish­ing. There are plenty of other mag­a­zines to cater for all dis­ci­plines of our sport. I’ve bought other fly­fish­ing mag­a­zines which have di­luted their con­tent in this way but I still come back to TroutFish­er­man. I would love to see more ar­ti­cles on sea trout though the still­wa­ter con­tent is spot on in my opin­ion. ■ An­drew Grif­fin – I’m a coarse an­gler at heart but have fly­fished for trout and other fish for over 10 years. I en­joy these ar­ti­cles and think some peo­ple are very nar­row­minded. Fly­fish­ing is no more than a method. In cer­tain sit­u­a­tions it is the only way to catch a fish. I love the method, the porta­bil­ity and mo­bil­ity, but does it re­ally mat­ter what fish ac­tu­ally pulls your string? ■ John Weight­man – Stick with trout, mainly on the fly, and mainly in Bri­tain and Ire­land. ■ Tony Os­borne – No prob­lem with cov­er­ing all as­pects, but wouldn’t that ne­ces­si­tate a name change? ■ Chris Mul­hol­land – Stick to just trout. As a sub­scriber who has lit­tle in­ter­est in coarse fish­ing it is rather an­noy­ing to turn the page and find other species be­ing cov­ered.
