Re: New guy introduction/need some help!
Welcome to the forum! This reminds me of a story told by the golfer Chi Chi Rodriquez. He was a poor kid that worked as a caddy on a golf course. They would let the kids play but they could only use one club. He learned to play every type of shot with a 5 iron.
When he got to use a whole arsenal, he became a legend largely due to learning to do lots of things with that one club when he was a kid.
Learn to play with what you have and it will make you a better fisherman when you start to expand your selection of rods.
