In a world where so many anglers are obsessed with size, one name resonates throughout the specimen world above (or perhaps that should be ‘below’) all others…. A retired farmer and former match angler from Lakenheath in Suffolk, Dennis Flack has dominated the small fish scene for decades. It began in the late 1980’s with …
PEOPLE WHO LIKE US
I feel your publication is well worth the money and more. Secondly ‘another fishing magazine’ does not correctly describe Fallon’s Angler. A journal, compendium, almanac. None of these are quite enough either. Simply a joyous read. I will not hesitate to recommend you to my fishing brothers. Well done and thank you.
Congratulations on producing such a marvellous magazine.
I was staying at Currarevagh a couple of days ago. Saw your mags — love them!!
“Fabulous publication, beautifully written and designed. Looks like you’ve invested a lot of effort and time into it.”
You put together an outstanding magazine, the Creel of it’s day!
“The magazine is a real treat, the quality of the writing and photography makes it something quite special, for my sake, stick with it, you are providing a valuable public service.”
I thought you might not mind me passing on my appreciation for what you have already achieved, in a difficult field. All power to you. I do like a nice medley, and I am very much enjoying my way through the first three issues, and wish you every success with this venture.
The world of fishing journalism is currently a bit of a no mans land. It lacks spunk, vigour and discipline, quite frankly. But if there’s one fellow capable of waging war on mediocrity it is Mr. Fallon with his rather splendid quarterly. Subscribe now or I will place military sanctions on you. – of Fishing …
Fallon has been thought bonkers for being bold enough to try something different in a hugely competitive and saturated market, but if the quality of the writing can be maintained I’m sure his doubters will be eating his words! Highly recommended. – from the pages of Flyfishing.co.uk
Another fine offering, these are becoming what Fridays are all about… So what if he’s been featured before and is a contributor to FA3 – such a considered response to last week’s Bits and Pieces cannot be overlooked.
“I have just received your magazines. I am so impressed with their beauty, simplicity and quality. They have such a tactile feel, a good move not making them glossy. They are sure to become a much loved favourite. I cannot wait for my husband to see them as fishing for him is as much about …
Just got one clue left to get in the crossword. Then I can start reading the articles. A man with sensible priorities from the forum The Path by the Water.
Mine turned up yesterday but Mrs Burr grabbed it first….. she was impressed. A man who married well from The Traditional Anglers Forum
Fallon’s angler reminds me of times past that gets me back out on the bank…
A terrific piece, we all know rivers like that, I drove over one for years before stopping last year and looking, rather than just seeing, and what a delight I found! – referring to Stuart Harris’ article in Issue 3.
4.40 pm…The post has just arrived, late as usual. through the letter box arrives a brown jiffy bag…joy of joys , 2 copies of Fallons Angler !!.Issues 2 and 3. that’s taken care of the close season blues. Member of the Chris Yates (Angling) group on Facebook.

Ordered!!! My favorite publication for years, they can’t come round quick enough! – from the pages of Facebook.
Now I have just finished reading issue 1, I would just like to say how much I enjoyed reading each and every article . The contributors capture the very essence of angling – the anticipation , the frustration , the expectation and the jubilation. So much so , its like armchair fishing , taking me …
There are few, if any, anglers who will be remembered as fondly as Bernard Venables. His very name conjures a sense of warmth and a source of considered, patient instruction. For many, Venables was Mr Crabtree. The man and the character he created smudging as one. Mr Crabtree Goes Fishing was published in 1949 with …
Flicking through the issue, I feel that this will almost certainly be a magazine that I will read completely, cover to cover. Member of The Path by the Water Forum
If you have not got a copy, get one. Each and every section is well written and more importantly to the Mole Mind, such as it is, entertaining. Also from ‘The Path’
I found it very enjoyable and a complete breath of fresh air compared to most publications that come out these days Member of the fine minded Traditional Fisherman’s Forum – www.traditionalfisherman.com
Excellent read. Hoping for some more please – Dave@ Hastings Member of the fine minded Traditional Fisherman’s Forum – www.traditionalfisherman.com
It (Fallon’s angler Issue 3) will provide a great antidote to all of this election nonsense. – wise words from the pages of Facebook.
Thank goodness for magazines like yours and a rallying cry against the onslaught of the “norm” – Master twittering from a master fly-angler.
…a lovely new publication ‘Fallon’s Angler’ which describes itself as ‘a medley of piscatorial prose’ and with contributors like Chris Yates this… has got to be worth following
‘Exploring a little London River’ – good read. From the world of Twitter.
I really like the magazine and website, the blend between old and new. Keep up the good work.
A cracking little piece (on Fallon’s Angler blog) about the River Ravensbourne in London. It really is amazing what is around you, even in the middle of London, when you stop and take in your surroundings. Keep up the great work on the publication.
I have just read my copy going to and returning from work in Manchester. All the articles were first class and I really enjoyed reading it. From the pages of The Traditional Anglers Forum.
It is a refreshing change from the normal fishing mags. This is 96 pages long and I have not yet seen an advert. Just well written articles. In fact the layout is like a good book. I bet these will be collectors items of the future. From the forum pages of Fishingmagic.com
Easter. No fishing, a cup of tea, and the damn fine first 2 issues of Fallon’s angler. Cheers! …. Am looking forward to the next one. Via Facebook

“If you like reading a good fishing story, then this magazine is for you. It focuses on quality writing.”
“Fallon’s Angler is a great read and mixes new with old. Great to see that my old hero Dexter Petley is still writing.” Via Facebook
“There are chapters about trout, chapters about barbel, even a chapter about squid. I could go on all night about how splendid a read this is, but I fear I might spoil it a touch for those yet to receive theirs.” Thank you SK. http://thesweetcornkid.blogspot.co.uk/
WOW. I have just received my copy of Fallon’s Angler. Now, I had high hopes for this magazine, but it has—in every way imaginable—surpassed all my expectations. It is elegant, attractive, engaging and eclectic. It is well written, well designed and well produced. There is a fine balance to it—in terms of its content, its …
I’ve just received my first issue of Fallon’s Angler! Marvellous stuff, very much impressed Russ Shaw
“Fallon’s Angler contains some lovely writing from an eclectic mix of writers, angling disciplines and locations. A masterstroke is getting that now iconic giant of angling writing Chris Yates on board, and though I suspect he would probably laugh off suggestions of being an angling icon he is really the founder of the current trend of …
“It really is a good read. I will not spoil it for those who have not read this yet, or intend to purchase a copy. Each article is laid out well, looks good and tells a story that draws you in. You can fish from Manhattan to Pembrokeshire, my old stamping ground of East London …
Many thanks to another satisfied customer who had the following kind words to say about Fallon’s Angler: “Just a quick word to say that I enjoyed the new magazine. I read it cover to cover—every single word! —not something I usually do. It really is rather excellent and I hope that it continues. I shall …
…the diary of a specialist angler in and around the Warwickshire Avon and its tributaries, is the blog of Mick Newey from Warwickshire, England. You know you’re going to enjoy it when it starts “I caught up with a couple of mates in Warwick Saturday night so fresh air was in order to cure a slightly …
