ah its pretty expensive to start but as u go along getting bits here and there it works out cheap, except the bait unless u dig your own.

I must remember to go to that mark at low water on the next big spring tide, sounds like a healthy place to stock up on tackle, unfortunately our learner brethren had a short sharp shock! However it will get easier, the apprenticeship lasts a lifetime, but you do become an "improver" after 10/15yrs, Ha, Ha, Ha

Tell your mates that they need to start on a more tackle freindly vanue like a sandy beach or key wall and piers and build up to the rough stuff . Don't run before you can walk . I'm shore we've all been Noddys at the start. You as a freind should nurture them and tell them to keep the faith .and join the forum .

failing that tell them sh1t happen so times . Hee Hee

Hi Blueskip,

I've been at it for over 50 years and still learning. Every time I go out I learn something different.

Cheers

Drew
