The Printed version is available on Amazon or your from local tackle Shop

Take a closer look at North Wales – you might be surprised at what you find. The beautiful region situated between Chester to the east and Gwynedd to the west is incredibly diverse and quintessentially Welsh. It has a flavour all of Iit’s own. For those who simply want to slow down and unwind, there are fine pubs and restaurants, pretty country villages, and an impressive array of castles and historic houses to explore. The more energetic know the ‘Borderlands’ as unsurpassed walking country, together with its fair share of rivers to fish, with trout and coarse fish at scores of lake fisheries. Historical Flintshire (known as the Gateway to Wales) is a county of market towns. There is good sea fishing in the Dee estuary, which a haven for wildlife. The Dee itself can be fished between Queensferry and Chester, coarse and game. For game fishers, the River Alyn can be fished on two beats. Flintshire has a good mix of coarse and game fishing venues
