Hi everyone. I've just started fishing after spending 3 weeks fishing in Florida.

I'm here to learn about fishing in the UK off all you experienced guys, with a hope to start pike fishing in the near future.

I live in South East Wales, so if anyone lives nearby and fancies taking me along to show me ropes, the pints will be on me afterwards!!

Cheers,
Sam

Welcome to the forums Al-Samak :)

I'm too far away to take you up on your offer, but hopefully someone will oblige shortly (many of the members don't read this forum however, so you could try the coarse fishing one as well ;) ).

I'm even further than John (lots closer to Florida though) but want to add a welcome to AnglersNet.

I'm almost ashamed to admit that I only fish for largemouth bass when I visit my 2nd eldest son in Orlando. Never got on well with the salt water fishing.
