I've getting back into fishing after a break of about 22 years! My last fishing was as a teenager coarse fishing (freshwater) in the uk. Of course. Much is different here and I have a lot to learn. A very limited budget and a chance to interest my 7 year old daughter means that for now we are just trying a little bit of trout fishing in the lakes around nanaimo. For now it's spinning and bait casting, would love to one day step up to fly fishing (both fresh and saltwater) and eventually fish for salmon and get into boats and all that fun. But for the near future I think I'm going to have stick with activities from shorelines and cost effective equipment.Anyway just wanted to say Hi, Great to read this site and learn the lingo (both equipment, terminology and ways of fishing very diffent from what I learned as a kid).
