What tackle do I really NEED?
Another question sorry
As perversely said I have just come back to the UK …
I am at the moment buy tackle that I think I need for the sort of fishing I want to do. Rivers cannels and commercials for roach, bream, chub, perch, small carp and crucian carp, barbel and my favourite tench.
I have got so far
1x10ft Beastmaster commercial float
1x 10ft Beastmaster commercial feeder rod
1x shimano 13ft float Ultegra
2x shimano dl 2500fb baitrunners
1x 3000 exage
And just ordered a Avon rod 1.75t/c for fishing on the Trent
Korum chair & trolley kit, tackle bag, landing net 2 x handle a 2m & 3m, 22” spoon net, unhooking mat, and brolly
Bank sticks, hand towels, bait boxes, ground bait bowl, pellet pump, maggot feeders, cage feeders, method feeders.
Hook size 22 up to 16s, Disgorgers, forceps, shoot, plummets, set of Drennan waggle floats and puddle chucker. Bib brace & jacket boots. And the most important bit of kit brew kit.
All off this has been recommend by the tackle shop. Witch also keep trying to sell me a 16m pole and seatbox do I need a pole I’m not going to be fishing matches
Can any of you help me out here what do I really need…. am I buying too much and going over the top here

Tangler Given that you are going to cover most of the venue types you have enough gear to cover almost any given situation, I would suspect you might just be as happy catching a gudgeon as a carp, and a good day is having plenty of bites. This being the case you don't need 16 metres of carbon, however having a pole will allow you to present a baited hook better, be able to fish closer to features, to be able to feed dead accurately through a pot. It does help to have a pole on the rock hard days, very few of us set out to blank. However the pole is best fished off a seatbox, which gives you somewhere to store the made up rigs you will carry, is 16 metres needed only if you are fishing a snake lake an insist on fishing tight to the far bank, and maybe in winter when fish tend to find a bit deeper water, but in summer I bet I catch more fish within the first Few feet of water, than the last few.

A license and get out and enjoy yourself would be my advice, you will only find out what you need by not having the right kit on the dayRiver anglers Go with the flow.
