I have crossed over to the dark side. I have a park with a small lake jammed with "bluegill" the largest of which is about 4 -6 ozs. More importantly I have a new mate who will be joining me. From the car park to the bank is about 30 steps. It has everything a fisherman really needs, snags, grass, tight banks, old fishing line - you know - the necessities for a good time. Even has a portable another 45 steps. Hopefully far enough to avoid the smell of nature in the summer months.
Below is the kit minus the terminal tackle. I will be looking for "aids" in handling such tiny hooks, line, weight, and yes floats. I have about 100 quill floats porcupine and goose (maybe)I will resurrect from a storage box. For the life of me I cannot remember the first thing about how to use them. I don't think they have a eyelet (raw). They are painted and lightly weighted as I remember(???) Two or three different lengths up to 18 inches or so (the length of the box)
The line is 1 kg (?). The reel is also called a "triggerspin" in the US. We have few naturals for bait so I will be predominately be using flys and tiny tiny artificals. Glad to be back on the bank.
