    Default Hi Folks

    Whilst I have been a fisherman since childhood (local ponds and rivers) I have focused on carp since the early 70's and so neglected the rivers. Having reached the grand age of 60 ( next week)I realize that I have limited time to catch a few other nice fish that swim in our rivers and have invested in a centrepin and float rod. Initially I will be looking for chub both trotting and ledgering and hopefully mastering the Wallis cast.
    The forums seem to be packed with useful tips and advice so looking forward to exploring the site.
    Regards
    Pete

    Hello Pete and Welcome to FishingMagic

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    Welcome to the forum. You can make up for lost time now and really enjoy fishing.

    You must have caught fish other than carp in the last 50 years; nobody can be that unlucky.

    Participate in all the threads and enjoy the company.
