HOW ARE you liking the new look magazine? I’m guessing from the string of emails that I’m getting, and the positive feedback while out and about, that you approve of the new style. I hope so, because we’re really enjoying redesigning it! This month I’m excited about killifish – those wonderful ‘mail order’ packages you can buy as eggs and hatch at home. Steve Baker has done sterling work writing them up as our main freshwater fish feature, but even that wasn’t enough to give him an adequate ‘killie hit’. Take a peek at what’s swimming in Steve’s step-bystep set-up on page 75 – see if you can’t spot the couple of killies that came home with him after a shoptour.
Looking forward to longer nights and brighter seasons? Me too, very much so. That’s why I’ve commissioned a little ‘pondspiration’ piece for you on page 58. If you’re not a pondkeeper already, I hope this’ll give you motivation to start. Enjoy!
