Hi corey, welcome to the forum.

You will find plenty of advice about 'how' on here, but don't expect anyone to tell you where. The forum has a strict 'no naming waters' policy.

Welcome aboard :handshake:

For places you have miles of canals around you and all hold fish that will chase a lure.
When you have bought your rod licence look on the EA website for your region.
If you want info stick with us and dont be afraid to ask, just dont expect anyone to name any places because nothing ruins a place quicker than publicity.

If you were local to me mate I'd pm you with a few suggestions and you may find someone does. Welcome to the forum. Once you're seen joining in the discussions regularly I'm sure there will be lads who can steer you in the direction of viable waters. The absolute best thing with fishing though is to find some fishing that others havent and all you need for that is Google Earth/Explorer maps and a bit of common sense. Good luck!

Don't know your area but i ditto wjats already been said.

Ask in your local tackle shop about local clubs in particular the Birmingham club which i believe is pretty big infact many years ago it used to be the biggest in the country and could very well still be.

Regards

Martin
