Hi all
Just a short note to introduce myself to you all.
I have been bait fishing for about 40 years from the shore , rocks and boats , but I now want to move on to lure fishing and plugging.
As I had very little idea about where to start , I have got myself a spinning rod and a few lures , and now Ive joined this forum to pick all the expert brains. Ive had a read through and you all sound like a great bunch of blokes , and hopefully i will get to meet up with a few of you to chuck a line and share a laugh or two.
I live in Cradley , which is just outside of birmingham , so I travel to either mid wales in summer for the bass , and to Aldeburgh , orford in the winter for the Cod. Either way its a few hour travel for me in any direction , so I dont get out as much as I like , but I try my best.:cry:

tight lines

Colin

Hi Trevor
I take my daughter swimming at the crystal leisure centre quite often , but its all indoors and nice and warm nowdays.
I need to drop a friend in Blackpool next weekend and am planning on spending a day or two in Anglesea trying out the new spinning rod and lures for the first time. I'll let you know closer to the time.
