    Mum and Dad brought my issue out from the UK a couple of weeks ago and I gobbled it up !
    If only it was twice the size ...., nah, it wouldn't last twice as long cos we'd all still gobble it up anyway it's so damn good.
    Thanks Pete, I'm looking forward to the next one with anticipation
    P.S. if I ever get round to writing something that might pass muster and you accepted it, just seeing it in print would be more than enough, I would be chuffed to bits and so would my Mum
    Yes, I do heartily repent. I repent I had not done more mischief; and that we did not cut the throats of them that took us, and I am extremely sorry that you aren't hanged as well as we.

    I fail to see how that's anyone's business but a contributor and the magazine. It has absolutely nothing to do with anyone else, whether the owner seeks to make money or not, or pays contributors or not.

    Like I said, I was not asking about anyone's personal agreements, just whether the magazine pays its contributors. That is a perfectly reasonable question. I find it curious how some get shirty about it: a magazine is not doing anyone a favour by publishing their writing, but some seem to see it that way. Just my view.

    I'm not 'getting shirty', far from it, just stating my view (as you have).

    "a magazine is not doing anyone a favour by publishing their writing"

    I disagree. Having work published is an achievement, it is something to be proud of. Particularly if the publication is prestigious. It's nicer than a rejection. It might lead to more work being published, book deals and perhaps even awards and literary prizes.

    I am impatient to get the next issue, I don't care if the authors were paid. The poor standard of writing in the other fishing magazines might be a result of commissioned articles having to be churned out every month in order to receive payment.

    I don't disagree that it's an achievement - if it's because it is valued, and payment is one obvious means of conferring value. Plenty of people go in for vanity publishing, in which they pay. Is that an achievement?

    I also agree that magazines that pay don't necessarily publish good writing, or at least writing that I consider good.

    But awards and prizes are extremely unlikely for fishing writing. I can't think of any winners, unless you count BB, but his prize(s) were not for fishing writing.

    Glad this thread was bumped up, I found the interview above with Jim Williams very interesting especially the furled leader bit.
