Hi all, as the title suggests I'm looking to get into fishing but after a few days of looking at what to buy I'm still none the wiser. I live in Worcester right next to a good stretch of the river Severn, so for the location I'm sorted. It's fast flowing, narrow in parts and at the moment it's quite low. People have suggested float fishing to start with but I thought that was hard to do on fast moving stretches of water? I very much like the sound of feeder fishing so I've been looking at those types of rods. This is a rod that I've come across quite a bit. Am I right in thinking that feeder fishing and ledgering can be done on the same rod as they both use a quiver tip to register bites? http://www.fishtec.co.uk/buy.cfm/feeder-rods/tf-gear-banshee-11-13'-allrounder-rod/40/yes/56207 Other then the rod I haven't got very far because I'm not sure what I'll need, it says it comes with a reel but is that pre-loaded with line or do you generally buy that separately? I'd go down to my local tackle shop but it isn't very local and it's awkward to get to. My budget can be up to around £300 all-in so if you have any suggestions or advice I'd very much welcome them. My license just arrived in the post and I can't wait to get started. Obviously I'll stick around if you need me to answer any questions.. Thanks
Hi I am new to course carp fishing and based in the UK. I have acquired a Silstar rod that is suitable for float or with a quiver tip can use as a ledger rod. BUT!! the quiver tip is missing and it is not a universal thread :-( Does anyone know where i can get one? Thanks
Hi, I havent float fished for a few years now, and need some advise really on a rod to buy. I have had a look at a few, but cannot really find any reviews on any that I like. My budget is around £50 but would stretch a little if it is worth it. I will be fishing in commericial fisheries, fishing for anything really. I have been looking at the Korum CS 13' Float, TF Gear Banshee or a Drennan Red range rod but not too sure. Are either of the 3 mentioned any good or any other recommendations? Thanks
