|learn to fish|
It always used to be the case that a relative or friend got you started and away on your fishing adventures. But what if you don't actually know anyone who can show you the ropes until you feel confident enough to venture off of your own?
Experienced anglers easily forget that the learning process was at first utterly confusing and at times intimidating. Not only is there tackle to get to grips with but also the daunting business of learning a foreign language of strange technical terms and jargon - and that's before you even begin to choose where to go.
Fortunately there are an increasing number of opportunities for beginners to enjoy a more guided entry into the sport which can help to by pass much of the initial frustrating process of working it out for yourself.
Many fisheries now offer coaching sessions, the more active angling clubs will run beginners courses, particularly for youngsters, and there are many professional angling instructors available to help. The sub menu items in this section should begin to point you in the right direction. Good luck and tight lines!
