Fishing is one of the most peaceful and rewarding of all outdoor sports. Whether you're spending time with family and friends or fishing solo, fishing is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and come head-to-head with a pulsating array of fish. Making a first trip into the fishing store with its overwhelming array of colourful lures and rods and reels, though, can be somewhat overwhelming. Where to start?
Very few people want to go into fishing because of some reasons best known to them.
Fishing may be the most popular participatory sport in the UK, but most people don't have a clue what actually goes on out there on our rivers, lakes, and seas.
An average man has his fair share of misconceptions about fishing, of course. It is boring. It's always raining. Only old men go fishing. The only fish you ever catch are tiny (yet in every pond there is a giant pike big enough to swallow a swan whole).
