No not yet, I'm just getting back into sea fishing after a thirty year break! I'm collecting gear on a tight budget and haven't found myself a reel yet. Well I picked up an old Penn 160 with the rod but I think that might be a bit more than I can handle for beach fishing/casting. I might give it a t...

Anyone know this rod builder?

I picked up a 12ft beachcaster last night and wondered if anyone knows anything about it?

Thanks for your input Redmouse, that certainly looks like a nice setup but it's way beyond what I'm prepared to pay at the moment.

Beach reel on a budget?

Hi there, I'm looking to get back into sea fishing after a 30 odd year gap. I don't know if I'll stick with it so I want to spend the absolute minimum I can. Currently I'm looking at a second hand Shakespeare Odessa 060, it's tatty but works and is very cheap. However I've just noticed I can get a b...
