Fishing Supplies

It seems fishing lines have been cast for enjoyment and for supper as long as there have been water and fish. As the years come and go, the tools for fishing keep getting better. They have gone from simple twine on a stick to high-tech rods and lures. Depending upon what type of fish you want to catch, the tools will differ.  Have a look at some of the items.

Fishing Combos

Purchasing a rod and reel combo is a great way to go because you know the rod flexibility will work well together with the gear ratio of the reel. Another benefit is that when they are packaged together you usually can find a better price.

Fishing Line

Monofilament Fishing Line:

Used for big game fishing. With a combination of manageability, stretch, easy knot tying and other fishing friendly factors, mono is the best fishing line if ease of use is your main concern.

Fluorocarbon Fishing Line:

If you want to go fly fishing, you will likely use a fluorocarbon line for its polymer properties. Moe anglers are looking to fluorocarbons because its properties don’t absorb water. This keeps the line strong, and it doesn’t carry the stench from the water.

Braided Fishing Line:

You can get more braided fishing line on a spool than monofilament or fluorocarbon line for the same strength. You’ll need this for deep sea fishing. Also, it has very little stretch, making fishing rigs very sensitive to fish bites. Braided fishing lines are immensely flexible and can cast long distances. It usually floats and is a common choice for top water rigs, etc.

Fishing Reels

Spincasting Reel:

A closed face reel is another name used. It is used mostly for young anglers when they first start fishing.  These reels also work just fine once an angler gets more experienced as well. It’s beyond easy to use. Casting into wide open water, a spincast does just fine.

Baitcasting Reel:

These are most often large, open faced reels. They are ideal for the heavy pound test line and casting heavier lures. Once you’ve mastered them, they’re pretty well the most accurate reel out there. They’re very popular and used for anything from largemouth to catfish to saltwater fishing.

 Spinning Reel:

The spinning reel is well known as an open face reel. This may well be the most popular reel used today. It’s really easy to use and, because it comes in an assortment of sizes, they’re very adaptable.  Spinning reels, as a rule, don’t handle an overly heavy pound test. It reacts nicely to about 20.

Fly Reel:

The fly reel is used to hold line and provide drag as the fish runs.  Fly fishing is lots of fun. So, look for a fly reel that’s not going to rust if it gets wet.  Make sure it’s well built and it has a good disc drag system.

Fishing Tackle:

Fishing tackle is the hardware such as rods, reels and waders.  And, as well, hooks, lines, sinkers, floats, baits, lures, nets, spears, gaffs, traps and tackle boxes. Also, gear attached at the end of a fishing line is called terminal tackle.  This refers to hooks, leaders, swivels, sinkers, float, split rings and wire, snaps, beads, spoons, blades, spinners and clevises. On occasion, the word, fishing rig is used.

Tackle Box:

Tackle boxes come in a wide assortment of choices.  Most of them have fold out trays and this lets the angler use the different compartments to hold all of their baits and lures.
