Wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of some basic setup guides and some general tips. My son is mad keen on fishing, he’s watched a few programs on tv etc, so I bought him a basic rod and reel and a few bits from go outdoors. We’ve been out to a couple of local lakes a few weeks back and a reservoir today but I don’t think we even got a nibble so we are doing some wrong I presume!
We’ve tried sweetcorn and bread at the lakes and I bought some glitter egg bait that we tried today that was well reviewed online as well as sweetcorn but still nothing.
I’d like to try and catch something before he gets totally sick but I don’t really know where to start!
Any help appreciated thanks.
Are you trying to catch Trout? What fish species are stocked at the places you have access to?
