    S'il vous plait,
    Est-ce que c'est correct?

    I go fishing, but not very often.
    Je vais a la peche, mais ne pas tres souvent.

    Merci d'avance

    Yes, it's correct. :thumbsup: (without the "ne")
    Though, don't forget the accents.
    "Je vais à la pêche, mais pas très souvent."

    I have tried to use the accents, but i can't use them. I think that it has something to do with the laptop that i'm using

    "ne pas très souvent" isn't very grammatical IMO. "pas très souvent" is fine but a more formal version would be "non pas très souvent". That's how it looks to me. Please, anyone correct me if this is wrong.

    Try setting up your computer (in the regional and language options in the Control Panel) to use the US International keyboard. You have to experiment a bit, but it works for me. PM me if you need any help.

    Or "Je suis un pêcheur occasionnel" which indicates that you don't go fishing very often.

    Important to get the accent/vowel-sound right..

    I think IMHO the sentence would remain simple, I find "je suis un pêcheur occasionnel" would come along a conversation, not as a first information ;-) And I find it too double meaning, be careful...
