Websites:

Purepiscator: "Saltwater or Fresh, Coarse, Game or Sea, traditional or modern, here it matters not, the idea is simply to create a varied collection of articles and writings from across the angling world."  Sadly, Purepiscator has now closed although it will remain on the web in a dormant state, so the content can still be accessed.  The good news is that a new site, Piscatoribus Sacrum, has been started and will take over where Purepiscator left off.

Fishing Magic: A leading internet site, now "under new management" as they say. 

Anglersnet: Similarly, a leading internet site for all things angling.
