Q: I’ve recently taken early retirement and wish to return to shore fishing after a 40-year break. Could you please recommend a good basic rod and fixed-spool reel combo?

PF says: it is certainly worth browsing the internet, where you will find many of the larger tackle stores promoting excellent combo deals. some of these deals are even on offer inside sea angler magazine (see our reader offer on page 94).
a lot has changed in 40 years, so have a walk into your local tackle dealer and chat to him about your requirements, where i’m sure there will be a deal that suits you.
