Fishing is one of the best ways to relax and have some good quality time with your friends after a long hard week. But, even though fishing is a nice and relaxing pastime, you need to be prepared before you head out.
What are Fishing Tackles?
One of the most important things you have to keep in mind is that you need to have a well-stocked fishing tackle box. The fishing tackle box consists out of all the equipment that you, as a fisherman, will use on the water. The contents of your box heavily depend on the type of prey you want to catch, as well as your personal fishing preferences. Though this being the case, there are some equipment parts each tackle box should contain:
- Extra lines –If you’re on a long fishing trip, you’re almost guaranteed to snap a few (dozen) lines in the process. With this being the case, you want to have a couple of extra lines in your box, just in case.
- Extra hooks – Regardless if you’re using a french hook or a J-hook, its good to have at least one spare hook in reserve. Make sure you have a wide variety of sizes in case you catch a fish that your usual hook cant handle.
- Bobbers – Bobbers help you know when you’re getting a bite from a fish. They are an essential and very useful part of your tackle box.
- Sinkers –Very easy-to-use, but also a very important item in your box. Your hook with a worm won’t very likely sink that deep, so you will need to attach the sinker to your fishing rig.
- Plastic worms – You should always have a fresh can of worms when going fishing. If, on the other hand, you’re not a fan of alive worms, you will need a box of plastic ones. They come in sizes and colours, so you can choose depending on your preference.
- A couple of lures – Worms usually do the trick, but sometimes fishes just don’t go for them, so pack a couple of lures just in case.
- Needle nose pliers – If you are not comfortable taking the hook out of the fish, keep a set of needle nose pliers in your tackle box.
- Small first aid kit – In an emergency situation, a small first aid kit can be very helpful.
- Sunscreen – Not exactly applicable to the fishing process but very useful while doing so. From early morning until the sundown you are exposed to the sun, so it’s important you protect yourself.
