    Hello to you all. Just started coarse fishing after 50 years and did not want to spend much, so I invested in a complete set up at £18 from Sports HQ. When the telescopic rod arrived the top cap used to retain the rod was broken. Contacted them for a replacement cap and they sent a complete kit, so ended up with 2 kits. I went fishing on a lake where we store our caravan and the heavens opened (no umbrella). Went out again in the afternoon and caught a small carp (chuffed). Tried again a couple of days later and caught a 10lb Bream surface fishing (over the moon). Following week a 8lb mirror. Not bad for £18. So now I am hooked (lol). Invested in a £10 baitrunner and just bought a TFG Banshee 13ft with reel for £57. I can't believe how light it is and can't wait to try it this weekend. I have now bought everything I need including an umbrella and am ready to go. Look forward to learning from other members on this site
