Rod and Line Magazine
« on: March 16, 2019, 04:53:58 PM »
Hi lads,

Iím looking for a rod and line magazine, number 16 from 1976. If anyone has one I donít specifically want to buy it (although I would) I would just like some information from it.

Cheers,

Sean

I got all the issues but sadly only to 1964. was it still being printed in 1976 I thought it was defunct way before then. As a matter of interest what were you looking for?

I think it ran until 1981 from what Iíve read but the editor changed a few times. The exact issue Iím after is the 1976 Vol 16 issue 2 (February). Thereís one particular article in it about a species of trout Iím interested in. Iíll just have to wait it out for one to appear on eBay, or a full collection.

If this was a British publication a copy of every issue will probably have been lodged with the National Libraries for which there has been a deposit copy requirement that dates back centuries. Searching on line for a now digitised copy might strike lucky

I found a 1976 issue but unfortunately it is March.

Snap Sandy! I found that one as well.
British National Library should hold a copy, but you are going to have to ask them to retrieve it (at a cost) and travel to London to view it in person.
It is possible that the answer to you query is available elsewhere on t'internet.
Ask away.

Go and look beyond the ranges,
Something lost beyond the ranges,
Lost and waiting for you,
Go."

Iíll see if I can find anything at the national library, a perk of my job is free rail travel! :D
I also found the one from March 1976, one month out! The answer to my query is definitely out there but the people who know rightly keep quiet. There is just a slim chance that the issue contains something about a species Iím interested in finding, the issue could prove useful or not at all. Iíve spent many hours researching and spent a decent amount on books looking for them. Lads have put up reports on the members forum here but not on this public section. Most of you will have no doubt read the reports.
