    Fishing can get as complicated as you wish, it only seems expensive now because of all the marketing etc and firms like korda, in the end they're fish and its not rocket science , I've been fishing since I was 8 , my brother was more fanatical than me in our teens early twenties (beer and the furry cup for me ) and he caught his first 40lb mirror in the mid eighties when so called modern carp fishing was in its infancy regards hair rigs and bolies , boilies all home made on my mum's aga. I find the shame of modern fishing now is people watch it on tv but sadly don't learn to catch all types of fish and learn some fishing etiquette along the way . Amount of times I've sat on my own on a lake and some teat sets up near you crashing leads all over your swim without even coming over to ask where your fishing etc.....

    2/ My new boat A Sun Dolphin imported from the States
    3/ My PB Carp 24lbs from Belgium
    4/ Drawing boat
    5/ Just leaving the water.
    I started in the late 80's fishing on the float and quiver tip rods Simon. I dabbled in all sorts of species but
    eventually got pulled towards the specimen hunting. It is mostly carp now with the occasional trip to my local
    river for a bash at the chub and barbel.
    That pike looks like a fairly long fish too. That is a nice looking carp also.
    Absolutely loving the boat.

    I agree. A lot of tackle now is designed to catch the angler and not the fish. I still class myself a an all rounder
    but have done mainly carp fishing for quite a few years now. A 40lb mirror in the 80's was some achievement.

    That sounds great jabba. My only experience of scuba diving was on Menorca. We were at Cala'n Forcat. A beautiful island.
    Have you had much success with your sea fishing? Sea Bass is my favourite eating fish. I love it.
