Fishing Tackle


Fishing tackle is a very important part of your fishing needs. There are many different things that should be included in your fishing tackle. Some of the things that you should use include:

  • Hooks
  • Spears
  • Nets
  • Sinkers
  • Rods
  • Waders
  • Reels
  • Lures
  • Baits
  • Beads
  • Floats

There are a few pieces of your fishing tackle that everyone must have in order to be able to hit the water which include bait, rod, reel, line, hook, and sinker. Many of the others items mentioned above are going to be more optional.

Your fishing rod, reel, and line are considered to be separately since they all combine to create the structure that you need to fish with.  The hooks, sinkers, and bait also fall into their own category since they work together.  The hook is easy enough to understand because it is what actually will grab your fish when it is being caught.

When you are ready to lure the wanted fish towards your hook, there are many types of bait that can be used such as lures, live bait, and spinners.  When you are luring, your bait and hook need to be lowered into the water deep enough so that the fish will be tempted (which is where your sinker is going to come into play). Your sinker is a weight that is going to pull your line down into the water where all of the fish will be roaming around.

Yes, there are many more types of fishing tackle than the ones listed here, but these are the main items in which your fishing tackle kit can be built.
