I've recently moved down to the Bournemouth / Poole area, and wanted to try my arm at fishing.
Ideally I'd like a 'do-it-all' set-up that I can fish local lakes, rivers and the sea (but I'm not interested in fishing off the piers).
I've got a reasonable quality telescopic rod (borrowed from my brother) and basic, but serviceable reel.
What type of line is recommended? monofilament/braided/fluorocarbon. - clear/coloured? 8-10lb?
Any help and advice is greatly appreciated.
