Hi guys/girls. Just a but of advice really. I've been fishing a few times now and I've got the bug so I'm looking for my first rod and reel (I was using borrowed equipment from a friend) does anybody know if this is a good buy for a first setup.
anglingdirect.co.uk/shakespeare-sigma-13ft-match-rod-combo

If my Google searching is correct then a match rod is used for float fishing. Which I've been told is how I want to start out as carp fishing can get boring so off putting for a beginner. Thanks in advance

I Carp/pike fish so not really delved into match/float fishing, even though Shakespeare is a good make, that seems expensive for what you can get from say Amazon or ebay, perhaps go for something like this, or have a look on Gumtree, you can probably pick up a full set. Tight lines 🎣

Looks like a link but has no address... FYI

Try again?
That's fine as your starting , it really is, decent brand, the sigma is still used by anglers in club matches as I see them often, the reel is ok too, you will be fine with that. Tight lines
