The Equipment of the Fisherman
The time has come for you to prepare the fishing equipment to go fishing. And what better way to do it than the hand of Fishing Blog, where you will find all the information you need on the fishing equipment that should employ a good fisherman.
We will help you prepare all the fishing gear you need for a good day: the reed, the reel, the line, the hook, the bait, the leads and all other fishing accessories
The most important elements that you must have in your fishing equipment are the reed, the reel, the line and the bait, without them you will not be able to carry out this sport.
Cane is the most necessary in our fishing equipment since we can not fish an animal as slippery as the fish with our own hands, we need a utensil to help us. The fishing rod allows us to take fish without having to get wet. And along with the rest of the rigging they make the perfect fishing equipment for a productive fishing day.
The origin of the fishing rod dates back to antiquity, arose at the time when man needed to feed on aquatic creatures. The first reeds were made with bamboo, and later with an alloy of aluminum, copper, magnesium and manganese. Little by little it has evolved with a view to improving its most important characteristics. They are increasingly lighter and more flexible but at the same time more resistant because they are made of very light and resistant materials such as fiberglass and carbon. This directly benefits the fisherman since, in this way, he will tire less of holding the cane and can catch bigger prey with more comfort. When buying a cane for our equipment of fishing is advisable to have basic knowledge about its manufacture so as not to err in its choice.
Fishing rods can be divided into four large groups according to their characteristics.
Reeds without reel are those that incorporate a reel, but the line has the same length as the reed itself. This line hangs from the tip of the cane along with the bait and thus would launch. It is an obsolete and almost disused method.
Reeds with reel: are the reeds we all know. These do incorporate a fishing reel at the bottom to be able to throw away the line and pick it up.
Fixed reel reeds: this type of reeds are used for vertical fishing, since they have to add the weight of some leads so that the lure is in the bottom.
Specialized reeds: these do not need leads, they are specific for the launch of the bait without additional weight.
Each reed serves for a certain species of fish, not all specimens are fished in the same way.
The reels form another important part of our fishing equipment, they are accessories for fishing rods and their function is quite simple, they serve to carry the rolled line around it to allow its release or its collection manually or automatically. In this way, we can throw the bait further and pick it up when a specimen hits.
There are basic versatile reels and more specialized ones, but if you are going to start fishing we recommend that you do not choose a very specific reel for your fishing equipment, it is better that you decide for a multipurpose one.
We can distinguish these from reels by their characteristics. The lighter reels are designed for the capture of small specimens such as trout. Intermediates are for catching fish with a larger size and a little heavier. And heavier ones are often used for fishing large fish.
Within this classification there are several types of reels, depending on their shape and functionality. Of all this we will speak in the articles of this blog.
For a fishing rod to be effective we need a line in our fishing equipment. The basic characteristic of a line is that it is barely visible in the water, which is a very important advantage when it comes to preventing fish from being aware of our presence. The length of the line varies depending on how far we want to launch the lure. And its resistance is based on the weight and the size of the specimens with which we want to do.
So, in case of doubts about which line to choose for our fishing equipment, if one is thicker or one finer, always choose one of nylon, since these are used for both saltwater and freshwater fishing.
For a fishing day to end successfully you need a good bait in your fishing equipment. The choice of bait will depend on the fish you want to catch.
The baits are divided mainly into two large groups: natural or artificial.
Natural baits are insects, worms, worms or small fish; But they can also be pieces of bread or grains of corn. Artificial baits, by contrast, try to imitate insects, fish or earthworms in their shape, color, size and movement. The most effective bait is the one in the very middle of the fish that we want to catch, since you will be accustomed to feed on it and itch more easily.
The bait is what hides the hook, which is where the fish will sink. That is why it is imperative to have bait and hooks in our fishing equipment.
You can also choose to prime the waters before going fishing, so you will have the advantage that the fish will have become accustomed to that type of food and sting more easily.
In addition to these fishing gear that are essential, there are many other small but useful accessories that we can include in our fishing equipment to make this activity much more comfortable.
Choose the combination of gear that suits you best for your fishing equipment and dive into this incredible sport.
