I know a few people that are interested in becoming introduced to our sport. For them to give it a try they need a basic kit of equipment at a low budget.
Do you know where they can purchase a basic kit of rod, reel, line and accessories for around £30-£40.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Wayne,

I've just got my copy of FFFT and there's a few supplements with budget gear in them - perhaps try some of the shakespeare kit, seems to be ok stuff ?

You might get better gear by buying it seperately, hope this helps.

Cheers guys,
I think they like the advanced shakesphere kit from mullarky's and in their price range.
I do feel good promoting our sport.

I started with a Shakepeare kit, it was 9' 6" travel rod, £5 reel and a mill end line, with a wallet of flies included. Never had any problems with it at all, in fact I'd still be using the travel rod if I hadn't lost it somewhere Sad

YGA are doing an incredible deal at the moment. Cortland rod, with reel and line for £49. I think the extra is worth spending to get something you can use as you improve the usual 30-40 outfits are a little 'rustic'! the cortland deal is over 50% off. I'd go for it if i didnt already have 12 bloody rods and reels.!

I must admit that I order quite a bit of stuff from YGA. They do free delivery on the web orders and are normally pretty quick on the delivery.

Sorry, misread the post - am overtired, slap wrist's etc.

On the other hand it's a free plug for the F.D.G. though.
