    Default Hello all

    Hi. I'm from Liverpool and after a 20 year break, am an angler again!
    I spent my youth fishing around Merseyside and Lancashire after getting hooked following my first perch from the Seven Sisters ponds (sadly now gone) in Liverpool.
    Life and travelling the country for work ended my fishing, but now, I'm back.
    Despite my great age, I've got 3 young kids, my 2 boys are not into the fishing, but my little 8yo girl loves it!
    I'm not a big fan of how angling appears to have "progressed" lobbing 3 rods out on buzzer waiting for a big lump to hook itself. I prefer simple rigs, minimal gear, and just enjoying being out in nature.
    Have enjoyed reading the forum, just thought I would say hello.

    Welcome to FM. Its amazing and great too how many returnees there are to fishing.
    I travelled up once to fish a match on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. I was pegged behind Aintee if I remember correctly.
    Didn't catch much. Gin clear. I could see the bottom most of the way across!

    Thanks for the welcome.
    I fish on Leeds Liverpool Canal at Aintree myself, I don't tend to catch that much myself! 2 of my kids caught their first fish on that stretch, tiny little roaches, but lots of excitement!
    Cheers all.

    Hello and welcome! All kinds of fishing are catered for here with perhaps, the pursuit of a variety of course fish, including carp,in the majority. Feel free to ask questions, create new threads and enter your experiences on the HDYGO( how did you get on) thread.
