Anyone else into Fishing? I've literally just started 2 weeks ago lol. Bought a set from home bargains for 7 quid, decent wee kit for the price, next day Casey's boyfriends Dad gave me all his old gear, 2x 4M rods 1x 6FT 1x 4FT and a box off tackle lol
Have caught nothing yet :(

Was out last night and could see them circling the bait but no bites, wee shites must know I'm a beginner :p

Fishing in my fish tank is definitely my preferred way of catching fish. But to be fair I have only been trap fishing for crayfish(which is a invasive species in the Netherlands).

Been fishing for just over 12 years. Started off going to private carp lakes where you also find breem and rudd, also do a fair bit of sea fishing around holyhead and an torquay.

That's all the rods I was given by Casey's boyfriends Dad :cool:
2 4M rods are Shakespeare beachcaster and Triumph steadfast match float. Not sure on the other 2, got a new tip/eye put on the next shortest 1 cost me 2 quid :Dand need to order 1 for the beachcaster. Been using the Triumph for spinning off Bangor pier and I quite like the feel off it, need a few heavier spinners to really get it out, I'd say I'm casting 30 metres easy enough with it. Bought a load off new tackle too, the floats have wee stoppers for the line ?? The fella did tell me how to use them but it went outa my head probably before I'd even payed him lmfao

Morning all.

I could do with a hobby.
If the aerospace sector goes to crap as predictors I'm going to have some spare time on my hands soon.
I was thinking learn the piano but fishing sound nice and chilled.
