Hi All, new to the forum, I’ve have just started pole fishing after an absence of 25 years since i last ventured and that was sea fishing when I was 15. Hoping to pick your brains and pick up some tips. Thanks all!

Hello Thedave 

Welcome to the forum .

I'm a little confused , it doesn't take much ! , are you pole fishing for coarse fish in general , or match fishing ? .

Coarse fishing,  this weekend was my first outing in 25 years, so just wanted to connect on here and see what everyone is up too. Cheers 👍

So how was it , Thedave did you enjoy yourself ? .

I don't remember any pole fishermen on here , but there are those that like to fish for Perch and Roach and Chub .

It was a enjoyable couple of hours, didn’t spend too long out as I had my 7 year old daughter with me (her first time and she caught within the first 10 mins!) hopefully get out again this week. Cheers !

Welcome to Carp.com. 

Plenty of info on here, about most types of fishing, plus when it comes to pole fishing, I do know about elastics, flick-tips, connectors etc. I'll try my best to explain if you need help, but I have found I find it easier to explain as I do it; I used to be the person who did the sawing and cutting to fit bushes etc at the tackle shop.

 

I found pole fishing was the best way to keep my kids interested, without reel confusion, as they were catching a few and got them to feed accurately on the float.

Thanks guys! My youngest seems to enjoy herself so I’ll be out again this afternoon for a couple of hours see what we can find!. I haven’t fished myself since I was 15 and that was sea fishing, so I thought to ease myself back in, I would start with pole fishing. 👍

Welcome,aboard. 

I did quite a bit of pole fishing a good while back and is a great way to catch fish. I should imagine your daughter is only using a few sections as anything over 8/9m can be a bit tiring unless you’ve got a top spec pole. What type of waters are you fishing and what is your target/size of fish your after. What’s your set up atm mate .

my lad loved it...when i had it....sold all in pocs to get into Carping.

Last year bought him a FULL pole setup too...NEVER USED YET...brand new Avanti 11m with 2 top 2's...and a box.

Made all fresh new pole rigs...

I used to do alot of match fishing/organising matches too.

I’ve got my youngest a decent whip pole which she’s comfortable with as she’s still quite small for her age, at the minute we are only on canals, bit still catching a fair few, she’s enjoying it as she’s asking me most nights to go fishing 😂👍
