Clive Mathias, Jonathon Marshall and Koke Machine are the three devout anglers contributing to this blog. The latest post, “Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Ideas” is a simple, practical post that got us thinking of all the things we should be buying for our fish-loving fathers this Father’s Day.

Erhk maintains that he aims to inspire and incite thought about various aspects of fishing through the blog.
The Classic Angler is a more serious blog and is apt for the more experienced angler. Topics are discussed in great detail and in a manner that befits a seasoned angler’s perspective.Taking a look at the post entitled, “Some thoughts and musings on soft or ‘slow’ fly rods”, you’ll see that it has been very well written and includes great detail.

In the end he even shares an interesting recipe with Bluefish.
