Good day all,
I am thinking of taking up fly fishing, but the gear I have is Aldi's own and I use it for carp in the summer, but I don't think its up to much as the reel is very small ( only 1.5") and the rod says 6/8 on it, which I take is the weigh of the line that should be used on the reel? there isn't much line on the real and I don't know the diameter or the weight of it,some of it floats and some of it sinks, but other than that its fine
I want to have a go at Packington fly fisheries and maybe on the river Blythe at their coarse fishery. Now here's the thing, I am 'saving' my money at the moment and therefore I am on a budget. I heard the coarse fishing stuff at Go Outdoors is alright but I don't know about the fly gear.
I was thinking this rod: http://www.gooutdoor...-fly-rod-p97129 As this is shakespeare my thoughts are it maybe ok.
This reel: http://www.gooutdoor...g-fly-9-p146832
And I am unsure on the line because I would like a floating line and I cant seem to find one on their website.
I will get my leaders, tippets and flies from Fishtec.
Your thoughts on weather this will be a good kit for me to start on will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
