Not sure what you mean by "tricky". Yes, the reports are very popular and Fisherman Papers surveys substantiate that. I successful publication like the Fisherman provides a balance of how-to articles and reports. Articles in magazines provide an entertaining format. I spend a lot of time reading outdoor magazines, especially the hunting articles. However, some articles are hokum and riddled with fake facts. Some of that crappy stuff gets past the editor, which is another problem. Over the years I have seen some poor editing and others were wonderful. Right now I am working with two editors -- The Fisherman and Surfcasters Journal -- that have savvy editors with great angling backgrounds. I have also had some dip*hit editors, most of which have retired. (Of course when you have been around as long as I have, you see a lot.) The guy that fired me over the dog thing was a real dyed-in-the-wool ding-dong who did not know fishing. I also had an editor, Frank Woolner, who made my career. He used to really blow some smoke up my ash: "Daignault, you fooking Frenchman, you can write!"
