Hello

I want to take up sea fishing. I am a complete novice at any type of fishing. I need to buy some gear to get me started. I see that you can buy beachcasting rod and reel combos from around fifty quid. Are these worth buying for a complete beginner? I obviously don't want to spend too much straight off without learning more about the whole thing. I expect that I will be doing most of my fishing on the North Wales coast and on Anglesey. Any advice will be gratefully received.

Cheers

Mike

Hello and welcome

I would recommend a rod/reel combo as a starter and for around fifty quid you can buy a decent one. If you then don't like it you haven't wasted too much. I would ask at your local tackle shop for any deals that they could do. Hope it goes well.

Thank you Ray.

Am I right in thinking that I don't need any kind of licence or permit for shore fishing?
