Just bought a shed load of fishing gear 'cos Grandson No.002 is right into it. Trouble is - it's been decades since I last did any. Tried "casting" and nigh on ripped my bottom lip off with the hook......or the line flies about two and a half feet in distance. The bait falls off. I lose all the weights/hooks/floats and stuff. Any keen anglers (Off piers or by the sea or harbours etc), out there that can pass on some tips that will help me to look a trite better than a total klutz with a fishing pole would be greatly appreciated. Supposed to be going "on the fish" this Sunday, and I don't want to look like a f***ing nozzer again! I thank you all very, very much, Billy No-Friends-on-FaceBook.
