Thanks for that, noted.Many welcomes fredbear and as stated lot's of knowledge lots of opinions lots to learn and at times alot to ignore.. I'm not retired but find my way round slowly.. Usually the classifieds looking at stuff that I want but don't really need..
Enjoy your journey. Start off with some maxcatch gear.. Once your fishing then get over complicated and expensive.
I'd recommend if you can to have a few casting lessons... The rest will lead you on a journey.
