Beachcasting

This is the most common method used from the shore in the UK. Ledger fishing is used to fish a bait on or near the sea bed, either at range or close in.
Most species can be caught with this method.beachcasting3

When choosing a set up for Beachcasting you should aim to get a rod between 12ft and 14ft long, with a casting weight of 3oz – 6oz. This will provide you with a rod capable of fishing virtually all of the marks this site covers.

Rods alone range in price from £25 for a good glass fiber rod, up to (and exceeding) £400 for a very good full Carbon rod. Obviously the choice depends on your budget and how much you intend on fishing.
