I have been a member for 15 years, and like many other members, I eagerly await each magazine issue... then read it cover-to-cover when it arrives. After that, I'll re-read it several times, including all my back issues. Over the years, I have become more and more disappointed in the frequency and thickness of the magazine. New members, we used to get 12 full magazines a year!
When the Jan/Feb 2013 issue arrived, imagine my further disappointment in reading material that I had already read. There is a question from "Member Greg Sorvari" entitled "Avoiding Little Cats" in the Fishing Q&A on pg18 that was word-for-word "recycled" from the Feb 2010 issue (check it out in the Fishing Q&A on p20 of that issue). What an incredible waste of my money! I understand that we have a new editor that this could have easily slipped past, but seriously... is there just not enough fresh material to fill the pages?
SO just what is going on here? How many other things are being recycled into our fewer & smaller magazines? If I am to read the same articles over and over, I'd like to do it because I want to... not because that's all there is.
