  • New section - Give away your unwanted tackle

    Hi guys and girls,

    This section of the forum is designed to help juniors get into angling and get them some tackle to help them out.

    If you have any tackle you would be prepared to give away to a junior angler then please list it in this section - we all have bits and pieces lying around in the garage basically taking up space, so why not give it to a junior who can make use of it and get them out fishing.

    I havent quite deceided on the exact rules on how juniors get their hands on the tackle advertised in this section just yet.... so suggestions are welcome, here are my initial thoughts -

    Juniors age 15 or under qualify to request the advertised items. All they would have to pay is the agreed postage to get it sent to them. To prove they are a Junior they must submit a photo of themselves and give a small description of their fishing explloits to date and the waters in their local area they intend to fish.... As I say this is a "work in progress" and any more suggestions to make this section and the rules for getting the free tackle better will be taken on board.

    So guys anyone with old unwanted tackle please advertise it in here and support your sport and junior anglers.

          I have a pretty well complete set of boat rods and reels, which I have offered for collection in the "Tackle for Sale" section of these fora.

          The selection is just the job for a youngster. Cost? post only!

          .................................................. ...........................

          "Over the years I have put together a pile of boat rods, mainly self made,which have to go, due to the fact that Maw wont let me go out on the water any more........ill health, you see.........

          So! I have the following, which would suit a youngster, who would other wise not be able to afford adequate fishing kit:

          12-20lb Conoflex blank........ home build
          30 lb Old old hollow glass blank (possibly early Mustad) ........ homebuild, v. sensitive.
          30-60lb Short Abu......... v. good in DEEP water........ word well with braid.
          50lb+ Conoflex blank......... v. strong wrecker........ home build

          Several H.D. multipliers.

          The only cost will be post and packing. Will require some form of validation of youthfulness, need and justification........... South of England, Solent area, probably most convenient.

          In other words, the best sob story gets it all!"

            I have a Browning Syntec 10.5m pole that anyone could have. Its an old pole with a 1inch split in the butt section which can easily be rectified. It has no spare kits etc but would be ok for a begginners first pole for use on canals or small commercials with F1's and smaller fish etc. The pole is very this and light at full length. Based in Wigan if anyone wants to collect.

                What a fantastic idea. I may well have a few bits and bobs in the next few weeks when I've finally sorted out the pile of kit I never use...

                Anu decisions on the format yet?

                              Yes the intension of this section is to get youngsters who cant afford new tackle some free tackle from anglers who just have odd bits and bobs lying around in the garage!

                              So come on guys anyone else got anything they would like to donate to a junior.
