Can someone teach me to fish?

When it comes to fishing, I’m in a league of my own –  I just can’t do it!

This Saturday is I’m going to have a go at the children’s fishing day at the New Brighton Pier. Experts will be on hand to help.  Come along – and bring a rod or drop line.

I’ve got a book on fishing from the library to find out what I’m doing wrong – if that doesn’t work, I’ll stop off at the fish and chip shop on my way home.

Apart from zinc-cream and a sun hat, what else do I need to catch a fish?
