my young ones keep asking me to take them fishing - i have never been and know idea what to get. Don't want to spend a lot as it will probably be 2-3 times a year - would this stuff do the job?

Agree, some looks ok for part timers like me, dont understand their timing though, 3 days after the season shuts?

That should be enough to sort you for light usage with the kids. Keep the receipt incase, as you get a 3year warranty!!

You best be sure it's the right rod for the type of fishing you going to be doing e.g. sea, river, freshwater etc else you will find it difficult to feel bites or you'll snap your rod.

thanks for the info

Cheers will have a look

These are ideal for beginners.

Bought some for my so last year and it did the trick.

Just in time for the close season on the rivers..............

I was looking at this and wondering, is the rod set a good choice to try some sea fishing from a small boat?

I gather mackerel are a fairly easy catch around here so am keen to give it a go.

Advice very welcome!

just buy a 3m whip/rig set for around £5

Sounds good to me! I might bite it as well Trout and perch one for rivers i guess? The only thing i've ever done in my life was deep sea fishing... And now i live kinda mainland... Any help appreciated

Got the landing net this morning, good job for the price. Only £5.99 in N.Ireland

make sure you buy the appropriate licenses or you will be left with a hefty fine.

trout and perch live in still water also.

Do we need some sort of license? I have a vague idea that we do...

Freshwater - yes. Sea - no.

Looks decent enough stuff for beginners/ occasional users.

sooo... I'd have to get a license then... Yay. Could I be fishing basically anywhere afterwards? Sorry for the noobish questions...

most waters are owned by clubs, check first as a fee will more than likely be required to be paid. the license just pays the enviroment agency to do what they do.

I'd personally not touch the lidl/aldi stuff for 2 reasons.

1: It's cheap rubbish.
2: The tackle kits contain lots of stuff that you will never use.

Have you got a GoOutdoors near to you? They do some cheap starter stuff, and the staff are fairly knowledgeable. Or try dragoncarpdirect.com for dead cheap stuff. Or even your local tackle shop should sort you out. If you are a starter, you certainly don't need Shimano/Diawa stuff! You can invest in proper stuff later...A 3 metre whip will be fine and they usually come with a rig set (line, float and hook)

A full adult licence is available at the post office for £27. You can get day licences for a few quid, and under 16s is just a fiver for the full year. This is for a course/river licence for non-migratory species, and you can fish straight away. You definately need a licence! The fines can be rather large!
See environment-agency.gov.uk/hom…spx

Hope this helps

That kinda gets me thinking that it's not really worth it. I mean I don't mind fork out something for the EA but then you have to pay the clubs and stuff... It all adds up...

Anyone know if these rods are any good for an occasional bit of sea fishing from piers and rocks etc?

I always thought children didn't need a fishing license, I guess that has changed now.

Generally speaking if the river bank is public land you can fish it, I'm prepared to be told I'm wrong though.

you are wrong, clubs rent stretches of water off councils. you can fish it if you pay the club and have the correct licenses.

Children don't need a rod licence till they are 12 and even then it's only £5 till they're 16.

Landing net I got is not cheap rubbosh, its as good as nets 4 times the price, also some of the reels that they do are pretty good though my local didn't get any reels in this time, rod/reel combos didn't look great though tbh but worth the money they are asking.

i agree, the landing net i got was amazing! Felt VERY sturdy and strong for the £6.99 price. Also 3 year warranty.
