Hi Hibby and welcome to Anglers' Net.  What general part of the country and what sorts of waters will you be fishing?

Hi Newt I'm from County Durham. I have joined a club with a small lake/ pond which is ideal for me learning on. Has carp in upto 15lb I'm told. Really I'm looking at targeting carp, chub, bream tench etc not to into silver fishing though I'm not knocking it and will no doubt have a dabble next summer when the suns out.

Yup.  Winter fishing for those species can be very slow.  Warmer weather next Spring is probably a better option.  

 

Most of my winter fishing will be salt water or fresh water blue catfish who prefer cold weather (at least the big ones do).
