hi all,
just got back to splodging after 40 years!the range of tackle and accessories blew me away to start with.the last time i fished there was no such thing as commercial fisheries(at least we never heard of any)and the tackle was, by todays standards, quite basic. terms were different too. eg. todays casters were husks, hooklengths were bottoms, rods were all wood(my dad made his own split cane ones)and the casting reel was just beginning to get used!!! however i must say that todays methods are brilliant and i am enjoying my fishing so much that i wish i had returned years ago.i fish at various places in yorkshire and have just discovered the Hull and district AA who have some super ponds around humberside. already i have caught tench(6lbs) carp(16lbs) and good bream to 8lbs and roach etc.i am over the moon with this "new " hobby/sport and also well chuffed with the friendship amongst anglers. brilliant. nice to meet you all. Happy Days!!!
