Sometimes something comes along just like Waterlog did over fifteen years ago with a bright fresh approach…admittedly I can’t read it so I can’t comment on the editorial content, but being made aware of it by Pink Heron (who has a great balanced approach to carp fishing) I feel this is many swims away from the UK carping dross! In English please.
Old school meets new school…if only my Flemish was a little better!

I agree, it does look more interesting than UK fishing mags (Waterlog aside of course), apart that is from the piece on/by Martin Bowler.
Little Boots & I spend a lot of time taking the piss out of him when we watch repeats of Catching The Impossible.
The tuesday swim said:
I’m ok with Martin Bowler, he tries to add and extra dimension to his writings in the Angling Times by being a little more descriptive. I think Catching the Impossible series truly showed his passion (and some great fish) although the support of Bernard Cribbins made the programme work for me.
Oh Lord no – Cribbens was even worse – strange how people’s tastes differ.
I commented here about Bowler & Cribbens & wasn’t alone.
As an aside I once saw Cribbens at a Rugby League Challenge Cup final (Leeds vs London). He came on the pitch & sang “On Ilkley Moor Bar Tat” & “Maybe It’s Because I’m a Londoner”. Both went down very well. What a trooper.
