    Default Bit of let down

    Got mine Christmas day Rob

    Disappointed when I opened it up

    No under 10m photo's or any editorial articles

    Won't be bothering again unless it reverts to the old hard back format, the A4 was far far better

    I decided against it this year when i seen the new format.
    Turns out my mother ordered it for me as a christmas present 3 weeks before christmas and guess what, it never turned up.Then a letter came yesterday saying they were sorry but a mixup in the publishing place resulted in it not arriving for christmas day.Tried ringing them today but nothing.

    And what's the gift card they sent, it's not a gift, just a card saying it was ordered.

    Hope they revert back to old format.

    I got mine last week and i'm also very disappointed with it and i definately won't be buying it again because it is just a waste of money now. Seems like a quite a few people feel the same way and i hope someone from FISHING NEWS reads these comments and changed the style of the book back to the way it used to be. I think it was 75 this year.....an unjustified price!

    I received my copy yesterday & I was extremely dissapointed with it.
    A hell of a lot of work has gone into that publication in recent years to bring it up to the high standards that have been achieved prior to this year.
    As has been said the format has been changed this year, A5 size, paperback, no editorial, No under 10m pictures, very condensed text that is virtually un-readable.
    All this & an unbelievable number of mistakes including most of the photos being credited in-correctly
    This year the price has increased from 65 to 75 too.
    Like others, I would like to see the format returned to the previous high standard & the only way to do this is to e-mail those responsible to let them know our thoughts on either (or both) of the e-mail addresses below

    i got mine yesterday and very very disapointed.
    have spoken with david linkie who does all the hard work for this book and the decision to alter the format was nothing to do with him, a decision futher up the line was made about it.
    its just not the same without all the features that david used to add in new builds, port features etc, etc.
    hopefully they will see sense and revert it to the originall format
