Welcome to Free Line Magazine Issue 1… A new era in carp fishing
magazines starts here. Free Line is the first ever 200-page-plus, totally
FREE online magazine! Yes, I did say FREE! At a time when carp
fishing titles are disappearing off the newsagents’ shelves faster than a
carp attached to a 5oz lead, Bountyhunter Publications have once
again stepped up to the mark and evolved with the times. Big Carp
was the first to have a digital App counterpart through Magazine
Cloner, and now Free Line is yet another groundbreaking concept.
Why? Because the age of social media is here. YouTube, Facebook,
Twitter, Instagram and half a dozen more platforms already control
hundreds of thousands of viewers, and it’s set to increase. And if you
want to be seen and be read, then this is where you have to be.
Free Line will contain all the aspects of carp fishing that I know
carp anglers love. My 30 years as editor of Big Carp has taught me this.
There will be comprehensive, unbiased catch reports, open to the
public regardless of which bait company you prefer. These catch
reports will be sponsored by lots of different companies, all offering
great monthly prizes for the best catches!! There will be edgy Big
Carp/Sub Surface style articles, so popular with BC readers, technical
pieces combined with session and campaign carping, venue variation
covering river, canal, syndicate and day ticket carping, and most
importantly, the chance for unknown, successful anglers to get their
stories published, the unsung heroes out there doing it rain, shine,
summer and winter.
The content will be a mixture of exciting new material and some
classic old BC pieces from the archives. My BC Promotions manager
Kevin Goss and I will deal with the daily running of Free Line, with
loads of posts about various aspects across all the social media
platforms. Free Line will be available via its own bespoke website and
from the Big Carp website. You will be able to download it on the bank,
in the bivvy or wherever, anywhere in the world for FREE.
There will also be a simple hyperlink access – just click and you will
arrive at the easy to use flick page design. Free Line will also have its
own bespoke App available to download through Amazon, Apple and
the Android marketplace. You can read it on your phone, on your iPad
or tablet, while fishing, at home or even at work. You will be able to
send pictures, videos and blogs direct from Facebook, Twitter or
Instagram.
As with anything totally new, we have time to evolve, upgrade and
update, so bear with us. This is only issue 1. We have loads more
aspects to introduce as we progress. As well as great articles and catch
reports, there will be news, reviews and press releases plus a whole
host of competitions. Issue 1 has a dozen French holidays to give away,
New Year at Anglers Paradise, a £700 Gowi bait boat, bait, tackle, books
and subscriptions!!
I hope you enjoy the new format. If you do, please let us know, and
if you don’t, well, please remember it’s FREE! There aren’t many things
in this life that are totally FREE but Free Line magazine is!
