Which Fishing Tackle Do you Need?

368 Words

Has the little boy, or girl, in you grown up to want to relive some of those special moments from your childhood. You recall wonderful memories when you and your dad, or perhaps an older sibling, used to go down to the dock at the cottage you spent your summers at and with fishing tackle you made from sticks and line you’d fish for dinner. But now you want to do it the real way and teach your child how to fish off the dock. So it is off to a sports store to buy fishing tackle.The problem is how do you know what you should you buy. You will need to get the right fishing rod, lures, lines, reel, hooks, bait and sinkers. There are also tackle boxes, thigh high fishing boots and special clothes to choose from. Fishing is a very complicated sport and you actually cannot make any purchases until you know what kind of fishing it is you want to do. Only then can you purchase the right fishing tackle. Do you want to fly fish, saltwater or freshwater fish?

The fishing tackle you require to perform the most uncomplicated type of fishing is very basic. You require the ability to cast off using a weighted line with a lure on a light fishing line. It then falls into the water and is pulled gently back in the hopes a fish will grab it thinking the lure is a meal. Fly-fishing uses a weighted line, with a leader that is very light and the fly attached behind the leader. Since these two methods are almost completely opposite to one another they require very different fishing tackle to do the job.

Another of the important choices that must be made is which hook to use. This depends on what kind of fish you are going after. The smaller the type of fish you are trying to catch the smaller the hook you’ll need. But hook size is not the only thing to consider it is also hook shape that matters. Before you decide to go fishing make sure you learn about what equipment you need so that your day can be a successful one.
