    Default Rod & Line Magazines

    I recently came into possession of 3 volumes of the old Rod & Line magazine from Volume 1 No1 1962 complete to March 1965
    The previous owner has had them set in a hardback (set of three) with a Rod & Line logo embossed on the outer cover. Other than some fading with age they are in pristine condition.
    Not that I am going to sell them as they are a worthwhile source of info but I wondered what you thought they might be worth & does anyone know if this is the complete set.

    Alan,

    I am afraid you have a few more to collect. I have copies from September, 1966 (Vol. 5, No. 6) to August, 1971 (Vol. 10, No. 5).

    ...... and, no, you can't have them!!!

    Thanks John wasn't sure when they stopped publication. Did not realise it went that far, 1971. Doubt it was much later. Rod & Line & Creel were the mags of my boyhood.If you want rid, you know who to contact

    That's right D. Mc Leod 47-49 Cowgate Kirkintilloch. They are a great source of info on all fishy things past. One to treasure. Can't say the same about back copies of Trout Fisherman more's the pity.

    Rod & Line was published until 1982 or 83. I have a few of the later copies.

    Now you surpise me did not think it went that long. Why I did not buy it at that time I do not know, though 6 years with HMAF might have been one reason. And no not "the Jail"...... Army.

    Anyone have a rod and line Volume 16, Issue 2 from 1976? Would appreciate just getting information from it, guessing most are destroyed or just in a forgotten box in the attic.
