Hi All,
Joined the forum a couple of months ago but just haven't got round to posting yet, just been trying to learn as much as possible from all the info posted on here already, and there is a lot!
I've had my espri angler since Jan and am faily new to kayaking but a complete novice to fishing but learning quickly!

So far i have learn't:
-sharp hooks are a must
-I need a fish finder!
-Don't go out whilst still really hung over :puke:
-And vomit makes really good burley

And thanks to Keentogofish and scaramooch for letting me tag along and showing me the ropes.

Cheers.

Welcome mate .... have to disagree with you though , you dont need a sounder . You can still catch fish without one especially if you bait n burley .
In saying that i wouldnt be without one ;)

Everyone is a genius.

But if you judge a fish
on its ability to climb a tree.
it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.
