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 !

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.

Woodsie welcome to Anglers net not sure there are to many kayakers that get on here but the Anglers afloat and coarse kayak fishing sites are worth a look as there is an instructor guy on there that runs slef rescue courses etc....can`t remember his name but did buy a great 10# fly rod off him .

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.
