Soleman's pretty well summed it up. What he didn't say was that yes, you can get your bait from the local tackle shop but with a lot of them, you'll probably have to order it.

So, if you get some kit sorted, fancy a trip up to Orford Ness in Suffolk for a bit of cleaning, a bit of fishing, a good crack and some really good advice? I'm sure there's a post on here somewhere about it. :lol:

Oh all right, you did. But I can hardly leap in like a harlot and invite the bloke to Orford without saying something first!! Anyway, you could have asked him and I wouldn't have had to embarrass myself with a grovelling apology to you!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ok, buy yourself a copy of Sea Anglers 'Baits and Rigs for Beginners' from Smiths. It's a good get you started sort of book.

There, now, are you coming or not? :lol: :lol:

NOT YOU you steaming great pillbox!!!! God almighty, you can tell it's a bl**dy bank holiday can't you!

Right Peak. Soleman did say about ordering bait. I did invite you to the Orford do and suggested a good book. For you. Not him. 'Cos you can really go off people quite quickly. But then, I get this kind of abuse all the time. Rotten gits that they are!

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

There Mr "I'm at work and have nothing better to do" Soleman. Or are you Mr "I'm at home and having a lazy day" Soleman? 'Cos if you are, I'm going to ring you and let one of my dogs breathe heavily down the phone at you! :lol: :lol:

Well I'm gonna aim to keep things in the "cheap, but not so cheap you'll regret it" budget :wink:

Would appreciate opinions on the following:

Rod

Reel
Is there an reason why I couldn't just use one of my baitrunner reels? I mean, what is the difference between a sea reel and a course reel other than the depth of the spool? If the answer is yes would you use the baitrunner facility or would you disengage it?
If the answer is no, what about:
