Indeed, it is a rockling - and this means it is the first of many species you will catch during your sea fishing.

We all start somewhere, but please keep track of all species you catch - it doesn't take long to build up an enviable list.

Well done

roll on to many more fish.Not to impressed with barb on the hook though,especially with its small mouth and the git almost swallowed it.i might have to squash the barb down a bit in future and give that a try,will keep me on my toes though.

My first sea fish, a beam of an estimated weight of 4ozs, foul hooked using a telescopic rod. I remember it but it is not in my diary. I have had better since, I'm glad to say.

First fish was a 6 1/2 lb Bass off Mumbles pier when I was about 12, borrowed rod hook just dropped over the side with a piece of kipper on it (yeah I know but I didn't know any better) it's still the largest bass I've caught tho :)
