Calling all SIB anglers....

Hi All

As I am pretty sure that many of you boys and girls are on Facebook, I set up a group for all SIB/RIB anglers.

Hardcore SIB/RIB angler, complete novice.....or simply thinking of giving it a go?

Sick to the back teeth of mates addicted to crap Facebook games, silly online 'gifts' and all manner of rubbish cluttering up your news feed?

Well, get signed up, bang up some photos/videos/fishing banter.



Obviously, this group is in no way designed to take anything away from the excellent RIBnet forum, and it is certainly non commercial, it is more of a social thing.

A few meets during the summer months would be amazing.....

Nice one, bigscott......I'd best get some stuff up myself now!

Hi Shane

Although I usually tend to be a pretty antisocial SOB when it comes to my fishing, I do love a good social from time to time. A meet would be right up my street.

Looking forward to seeing pics of the first thornies coming over the 'Earl's' tubes. The extra space will make a massive difference when out on the water.

I'm not too keen on the old Facebook thing myself. In fact, not long ago I had to have a complete cull of all my socialising buddies due to the fact that I'm am not the slightest bit interested in whether their dog was sick in the night, or not! Added to that, they can stick reports of their Farmville activities where the sun doesn't shine. I'll stick to seeing them in the pub to talk about the important stuff..... like whether the barmaid is wearing a bra, or not ;-)

Where it does, or could, excel is in the fishing banter/chit-chat side of things. Love hearing about what people have planned, and seeing how their trips panned out.

Cheers

Wayne

On a related note, have any of you guys got a 'fishing bible' you would recommend ? I've got myself a nice, compact six foot rod and reel, but a quick squint on Amazon hasn't revealed the 'must have' reference work for the novice fisherman.

I am in a bit of a quandry, simply because our encounters with anglers along the Avon have been of the glaring variety, whereby we are disturbing their space with our noisy little dingy. I swear that they go out of their way to find hiding places behind trees where they can then spin out their invisible lines. I keep a good lookout, but when a line appears out of nowhere, all of my calmly practiced helmsmanship turns into a panicked reversing at full revs in the wrong direction.

Anyway, I guess the question is, if you don't know anything about fishing, anyone recommend any good books ?
