Hey there!

 

I'm Warren, 23 from Birmingham. I'm a complete rookie when it comes to fishing. I used to go fishing with my family when I was younger, but no biggie! I've been fishing twice in the past couple months, I went to Hereford for the weekend and caught my first fish which was a (I was told) a 5lb+ Barbel (my profile picture) so as you can tell i'm not exactly a hardcore angler!But  I was chuffed to bits!  :1a:

 

 

Thank you.

P.S. What's the best but cheap feeder rod to buy?  :fish:
