  • Hello from Manchester

    Hello all

    I'm a total novice with fishing. I love the outdoors, hiking, camping and so forth. Fishing is one of those things that I always wanted to try but just never got around to it. I decided it was time to remedy that, got myself a couple of starter rods, one with a spinning reel and one with a fly reel and then... corona hit. So I'm waiting on a time I can start my fishing but fingers crossed we will come through it sooner rather than later.

    Hopefully if I have any questions some of you will be patient and kind enough to share some wisdom with me.

    Cheers
    Sam

    Welcome to the site, sure your questions will be answered, what style of fishing are you planning on doing, we can perhaps point you in the right direction. Not that we have too many fly fisherman on the site.

      Thanks for the welcome Brian. I'm not sure what style really, I'll have a go at fly and spinning reel fishing and see which one suits best I suppose. Think I'll start with the spinning reel/rod and try to catch some coarse fish.. carp maybe?

        Carp are not really a target fish for a spinning rod and reel set up, that would be better used for perch and pike, mind you I suggest that you really should not tackle pike, without some supervision, whilst appearing to be a tough fish they are quite delicate. Fly fishing is not usually practiced by coarse anglers, again it needs a bit of tuition to become a bit proficient. Carp fishing is more attuned to bait fishing, in its many styles, be it float, or ledgering, Almost all baits will catch carp,

            There were still places to wet a line, during the closed season, mainly on the guise of catching trout, so never tried fluff flinging.

              Ok I'll look into picking up the fundamentals of bait fishing. I'll probably see if I can get a few hours with a well versed angler to show me the basics. That might be the best way to start.

                  Welcome Samo. Youtube has loads of fishing videos, Take a look at a few by the 'Credencis' lads and 'Winning ways' for tasters of a few things that are on offer. Enjoy.
