Hi all,
I'm Keith and I joined a few days ago and thought I had better introduce myself.

I'm 57 and from Hertfordshire. Although I love most types of fish my favourites are Barbel, Tench, Roach, Carp & Pike (in that order).
I have loved fishing since 1961. and helped to run our estate lake club for the past 30 years.
I am also priviledged to belong to the St. Albans Verulum AC which lease some of the better stretches of the great Ouse as well as some still waters which hold some near record sized fish.

One of my pet hates are anglers who think they know it all; as I believe that the best anglers realise that they are always learning.

Thats all that stuff out of the way. I look forward to meeting you all on the forum.

Welcome Keith.

I think most of us old timers will agree that no one can 'know it all' and I'm certainly still learning after about 60 years of fishing.
