Q: I am new to shore fish­ing and don’t have a huge amount of money to spend on kit. Is it worth me buy­ing a 12ft tele­scopic rod and reel set up from an on­line tackle com­pany?

PF says: i would avoid choos­ing a tele­scopic rod for uk shore fish­ing. These are more suited to sandy mediter­ranean beaches where there are no snags and vir­tu­ally no tide.

check your lo­cal sea an­gling club no­tice board for any beach rods that are for sale. bet­ter still, join the club and find out what the mem­bers are us­ing. i reckon one of them will know some­one, or a shop, that has a bar­gain go­ing and point you in the right di­rec­tion.
