Hi my names Richie but Woodsie to friends.

I have just bought a kayak and fishing gear, I have a bit of experience in both but would like to learn the skills and knowledge to become a safe and advanced kayak fisherman.

I am based in Southsea and am keen to get on the water any advice on good spots and times to go would be much appreciated !

Many thanks.

Hello Woodsie and welcome to Anglers Net :)


Can't really help with good spots to kayak near Southsea, but I'll move this over to the kayaking forum, you should get more views there.

Thanks guys I didn't realise I just went into start a new topic ! !
Hooefully I'll meet some people who can help on there, just looked and liked what I saw.

I went out on my own today and was a little lost as to where to head but thoroughly enjoyed myself !

And I didn't fall in ! ! !

LOL - not falling in is a good thing and not nearly as easy to manage as people who've never tried a kayak might think.
