    Default Hi guy. Absolute novice here.

    Hi guys.
    My son has been, for a while, wanting to get into fishing and so I have bought some cheap gear and we are off to a local fishery this weekend, where the owner has kindly offered to show us the ropes.
    I'm looking at spending some quality time with my son too!
    I look forward to reading and learning from this forum.

    Cheers

    Hi and welcome to Fishing Magic. Hope it all goes well. There's a thread in General Fishing, "How did you get on?". Let us know and ask away if there's anything you're not sure about.

    Being new to fishing must be like walking onto a mine feild, if there is anything you are struggling to understand. Shout up

    Thanks guys. I'll post up when I'm done on Saturday.
    I'm pretty lucky really as there are quite a few places to fish locally all within walking distance.

    Thanks Keith.
    I'm just hoping the lad catches a few. Bought him a whip, so fingers crossed.

    A whip is a great way for a beginner to start.

    Use barbless hooks to ease unhooking, both for the fish and yourselves. It makes life far easier to release if you hook the landing net mesh, clothing or yourself!

    Welcome to FM. I think that is a very good approach to get help from the fishery owner.
