Possibly the worst bit of advice you can give to a learner.
Fish arent suitable for beginners even if they are floaty - they're skatey which is fun in skilled hands, but just means wobbly to a beginner.
Also, fish arent great for tall/heavy people. By the time they can float someone 6ft+, they've lost the advantages of the small dimensions.
Oh, and jaffa... click on 'view more smilies' and then you too can
