Hi all, my names Phil and I’m here as a result of my son (7) wanting to fish. For a while now I’ve been reading and watching anything ‘fishing’ to learn everything I can about it. Most people who fish seem to have had a mentor to show them the ropes so I wanted to be that for the boy. I’ve got some equipment so hopefully tomorrow we’ll be catching our first ever fish! I think everywhere will be busy after lockdown restrictions have been lifted slightly so I’m going to try kingforth lane fisheries, burcroft at conisbrough or roundwood ponds.
Happy to help you out, have been coaching youngsters for around 10 years Where are you based a lot of fishery's around our part of the country. I am going to be very busy over the net couple of days (not fishing)but am happy to offer advice.

Good luck mate, sure you and the lad will enjoy it! Warden (Phil) will put you right, just catch a few silver fish to get you going then move on the bigger ones. Westwood Lake near Chapletown is full of fish, even Phil catches there.
