I was just about to post about this!
Anglers Mail has a three page write up, followed by lots of information in their 'Where's Fishing' feature - in AT there's nothing[:(!]

They really should rename the paper - 'Carp Puddle Weekly' - 'cos that's all they ever write about.

I bought AT every week for about 25 years (1978-2003ish) and read it from cover-cover - starting at the back for the match coverage of course.
Nowadays I pick it up in Smiths in my lunch-hour and can read all the interesting bits in about two minutes flat.

Anglers Mail used to be a bit of a joke in comparison but is now streets ahead in articles, Where To Fish guides, even the match coverage is getting better.

Surely AT has got to be losing readers?
I wonder how many who used to buy it still do

Bye-Bye Angling Times, no more for me. To think they only re-launched a few weeks ago and merged with AT Advanced. They are so in the pockets of pellet, paste and groundbait advertisers that is all they ever go on about. Double page "articles" that are no more than an advert for the latest product launch.

I posed the same question on the AT Messageboard
http://forum.anglingtimes.co.uk/forumlive/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=11037

Nobody seemed in the slightest bit interested
I was hoping for a response from somebody on the staff editorial team but needless to say that wasn't forthcoming.
Although as the only forum not to have banned the infamous Lester I shouldn't really be surprised[:p]
