One of the UK’s top freshwater fishing magazines has ceased publication.
Coarse Fishing Answers, owned by David Hall Publishing (DHP), has printed its last ever issue. Editor, Rob Smith, confirmed that the January 2017 magazine would be the final one in a post on its Facebook page.
He wrote: “Sadly, I have to announce that this will be the last issue of CFA.
“It seems that the need for a general coarse fishing magazine has slowly dwindled away over the last few years. There are still many pleasure anglers out there, like myself, but our thirst for information can be quenched for free on the internet.
“It’s a battle that all print magazines are now facing and I just hope that they can survive to allow those of you who still enjoy reading a ‘proper’ magazine to continue to do so.
“I hope you’ve all had as much fun reading CFA as I’ve have putting it together – see you out there on the bank.”
DHP owns a string of fishing titles, including Tackle Trade World, and also the UK’s Tackle & Guns trade show which took place this year at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.
