Thanks to the admin team for accepting my application to join your forum, and hello to you all.
Unfortunately my introduction does not read as interestingly as some i have read, as I am actually just at the beginning of my journey into traditional tackle and techniques.
My turning point was a day out with a old fishing friend who I had not seen for some while, and regaining some of the fun & enjoyment I experienced in my younger years that over time had been lost.
As a long time lurker on this forum, I have slowly been re evaluating the enjoyment I was actually getting out of my fishing and found myself in a familiar situation of acquiring a mountain of unnecessary tackle that the industry had convinced me I really needed.
I am now in the process of sliming down my current tackle, and hopefully actually making a few useful items along the way.

Pull up a pew, pour a favourite tipple and enjoy the banter :cheers:

Welcome to the forum :Hat:
You'll find you soon have a lot more unnecessary tackle it'll just be a lot older, tis a slippery slope :Chuckle:
There are three things that improve with age: wine, friendship and water sense, and there's no short cut.

Welcome, there is always plenty of advice available on what to keep and what to give away or throw away.

Whereabouts in the country are you?

My biggest worry is that my wife ( when I'm dead ) will try to sell my fishing tackle for what I said I paid for it.
