Welcome to the site m8. Can't help you on marks I'm afraid as I'm nowhere near you. As regards everything else have a good look round, don't be afraid to take a peek at the other regions and don't neglect the blue box on the top left. If you then have any more specific questions don't hesitate to ask and I'm sure someone will help you out.
hi geordie, welcome to the site, if you live near the coast just pop into one of the tackle shops and tell them what you like to do, like beach, pier rock fishing or just general all rounder. I am sure you wont get ripped off as you will be back buying bait etc.
others will add to this and befroe long your head will be full of things you want to buy
Basicly You need to decide where you are going to fish ,I found when I first started that a steepish shingle beach like the Co Durham pit beaches ( Horden)were best as theres a fair deepth of water close in.So if you fish a mark like this you can really pick any rod for the job (I would suggest somthing from the Ron Thompson or shasespere range dont go for the buget range as its false econmy but a mid priced rod say 60 to 90 pound will see you ok for a number of seasons same with reels).As for buying gear I would shop around as some shops are there to make a quick buck and dont care wot they sell you so never take what 1 says for granted and go to as many shops as you can as this serves 2 perposes youll get a feel to a shop you like and can trust also you'll gain advice and some tips on the local area and how its fishing I buy most of mt gear online or from the shops in sea angler another good source if you know what your looking for is the second hand market but be careful here .As for marks to try the pit beaches as i've already said ,north gare at hartlepool is a good mark , the river wear as well. Hope I've been some help and hope to see you on the beach soon
