Good morning and hello! I'm a relative newcomer to fishing having started about 3.5 years ago but still enjoying it. There are a few people on here who may know me already and one in particular. I do post on a rival forum but hope to do so here adding some interest and humour as I go along.

I just need to find my way around and find the emoticons; a picture can convey many words.

Welcome again Mike, 

 I too am struggling to post pictures, so don't think it'd just you. I never used to have a problem until a few years ago. Not sure if it's the site, or me having more 'senior moments' than I used to.wheelchair.gif

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

I can now post pics within the post but still can't create an avatar. Hardly life and death but others can do it so there must be a way.
