Hey!:hello:

What's going on! As you see from the title I'm new here. I just wanted to find a good place online to discuss fishing because I still consider myself new to it and I would like to learn more.

Ok here is my fishing bio.

To be completely honest, I've gone out fishing about 5-6 times in my life.:angry7: I've caught a few catfish in the creek behind my house and when I went to Colorado I caught about 6 Rainbow trout in Lake Dillon.

:help:

Ok here is the real point of this post. I don't even own a fishing pole or any gear. I've always borrowed a friends. What do you guys recomend me to start out with. I was looking at a Shakespeare rod at Wal-mart that I might pick up.

Also what type of bait do you reomend to use for fishing in creeks, lakes, or ponds? (thats where I plan to do most fishing)

Anyway thanks for looking and I appreciate any help

Go by and see RACN at Crab Creek Outfitters right at the base of Lesner Bridge.

He will get you started with a quality yet inexpensive combo for your needs rather than something that will break on ya.

While freshwater fishing can be fun, you will get hooked on saltwater fishing if you try it. Go out with us a few times and get the hang of it! Best time of year is right around the corner!

Welcome!

Glad to have you here!

Do a search on whatever you like and you'll find a plethora of info.

Warning: You are about to embark on a hobby that may cause dizziness, headaches, jitters and loss of sanity if not participated in at least weekly.
