With a subject that is totally new, as this is to me, I don't have a clue who to listen to. I have heard of some of the names that came up and recognise them from the odd fishing series that have been run on the television. I found lots of videos on YouTube by Matt Hayes. These are great for someone like me who knows nothing and I know I can trust the information as being from someone who must know what he is doing.
Other than this sort of thing, the internet is a minefield of unfamiliar jargon and unqualified advice for the complete fishing numpty like me. Time to revert to the tried and tested route - books and magazines. A look through the Amazon book shop reveals a myriad of books. I discovered that a lot of them state "New and Used from 1p" I have used this before to great success so I ordered some beginners books and even including the postage only spent a few pounds.
|I do like a nice solid book!|
As I sit here typing I can here the sound of tinkering plates and cutlery, as we ate a few hours ago this can only mean one thing... Washing up! Now here is the dilemma, do I rush off and offer to help or lay low and read my new-to-me book...
...Decision made. But how to I get to the beer without going in the kitchen? It's a hard life.
