Thursday Review: Classic Angling (Sep/Oct 2013)

The latest edition of the British magazine Classic Angling has hit the newsstand. It has a ton of interesting articles, including the cover story about a 50-pound pike and its history that is one of the most engaging stories of its kind I've read in ages. It's an unbelievable story, and very much reinforces how rare these big monsters are.

For the American audience, there are two great articles by authors familiar to American audiences. First we have Ben Wright, the spinning reel guru, who gives us the story of why it took so long for ABU to go to aluminum spools. The second is by ORCA's Mike Cacioppo who gives the skinny on Penn's first multiplier.

Additional articles by mainstays Judith Head, Neil Freeman, John Bailey, and others, as well as the assorted mixture of news and short blurbs, makes this another issue well worth perusing.
