Waterlog ran for 100 issues after it was founded in 1996 with the objective of providing good quality, sometimes eccentric stories in magazine format for anglers who enjoy the process of fishing as much, if not more than the catch. The magazine was published quarterly and its coverage, whilst maintaining stories of high literary quality and regular spoofs, included historical, political and environmental aspects of angling. The magazine was designed and edited by Jon and Rose Ward-Allen and printed in the UK. After issue 100, Waterlog 101 - a beautiful hardback book - was produced containing a new collection of the best of angling writing . . .


A heady mix of new articles, on game, sea, coarse, angling history and travel - along with wonderful photographs and illustrations.
Waterlog 101 is beautifully printed, bound in the UK and limited to a single printing. Buy it here.
