Fishing Tackle ? and Your Wallet


You have your fishing rod, you have your bait. Let’s go fishing! No my friend, you are mistaken. When I first started fishing many years ago, this is what I believed was the necessary apparatus. I was wrong. I went to my local fishing tackle shop and was quickly told that I needed: good quality fishing wire, fishing hooks, a fishing reel, nets, rigs and lures, floats, the list goes on. I quickly realised that the cheap rod and bait I believed I needed turned into an expensive investment that cost me well over four hundred pounds!

Luckily for you, you have what you are using now: the internet. As you may have known, or should know, shopping online is much cheaper then shopping in your high street. This is why I urge you to shop online for your fishing tackle. With more and more people shopping online, fishing tackle websites are significantly cheaper then fishing tackle shops. I have seen on many websites special deals such as buy one get one free hooks. One deal I came across was selling a Berkley B1 12 FT carp rod 2.75lb at a significantly reduced price from£219.99 to £119.99, that is a one hundred pound saving! Deals like this should not be missed. I have never in my life witnessed that much discount on an item in a store, unless the item has become redundant. The deals I have found are not simply selling redundant stock; they are being sold as special offers. Theses offers are constantly changing, which enables one to buy many types of fishing tackle at reduced prices.


It is also important for one to consider the price at which fishing tackle is increasing. With technological developments of fishing tackle such as LED baits that blink to attract fish, fishing tackle is becoming more expensive. Even though these new types of fishing tackle are improved and are proven to catch more fish, I feel that the price they are charging does not reflect how useful they would be. I have still been able to catch fish in the past, the fact that I have these new technologies at my disposal means I have catch a few more fish, but ultimately I still catch a fish if I don’t use these new innovations. If you are the more serious fisherman who prides himself on the amount of fish caught, then it would be in your best interest to purchase more expensive types of fishing tackle. However if you are more of a amateur, it would be right to say that you would be better off using the more simpler, cheaper fishing tackles. 


The general fact that online stores are beginning to sell more than local stores is why their tackle is priced lower then means that it is financially better to shop online then stores. This is why I say, be you a professional or amateur fisherman the online route for your fishing tackle is the way to go if you want to save money and untimely catch more fish.
