Fly Fishing Apparatus

Fly fishing isn’t just a normal way of fishing because it uses specific tools to catch fish. . The most common associated fish caught with fly fishing tackles is trout and salmon, however pike, bass and carp are being caught as well.

The basic apparatus in fly fishing is the fly rod, fly line, artificial fly line and fly reel. Each part of the tackle has its own vita role in catching fish. First is the fly rod which is used to cast the fly line. The length will vary between 7 to 10 feet depending on the environment where you are fishing. Usually, fly rod are made from graphite and fibreglass and in some cases bamboo. By using other materials, the fly rod will become lighter or heavier and it may also become stiff or bendy. Therefore, follow the intended materials for ht fly rod to work perfectly.

Another part is the fly line which is a plastic coated line that can be found in variety of thickness. They also range in color but usually, bright colored fly line is used to attract the prey that is intended to be caught.

Now let’s go to the major part of the fishing tackle which is the artificial flies. They are made by tying hair, feathers, fur and other natural and synthetic materials onto a hook. Artificial flies range from bright lively colours in order to stand out, or darker colours to match the environment.

Another important part of the tackle is the fly reel. This one is used to hold the fly fishing line. The fish caught depends entirely on the kind of reel used. For bigger fishes, one should consider thicker lines and gears while for smaller fishes, a manual reel can be used.

Fishing and Earthquakes – Having an Eel of a Time

It was the family summer vacation of 1982 and the Scottish Highlands were enjoying one of its rare blazing hot summers.

My dad had just bought me my first ever fishing rod from the local fishing tackle store, it was a bright shiny yellow which stood out a mile, and perhaps this was a sign of things to come!

I knew nothing about fishing but couldn’t wait to test the new rod out in the nearby Loch. My dad assembled the fishing tackle for me and off I set, fully expecting to catch lots of fish, although I hadn’t planned as far as what to do with them once I had caught them!

It was a gloriously sunny, warm day and after just a few minutes walk from where we were staying, I reached the bank of the Loch and settled into position. A friendly neighbour from one of the other log cabins was fishing just a little further up the bank and it seemed he was already having great success with his landing net already showing signs of activity!

It would only be a matter of time, I thought naively, before I was reeling in giant trout, carp and bass! I decided I wouldn’t sit down because there was sure to be lots of activity and fishing action!

I began to notice that the guy further up the bank was actually making a catch what seemed to me to be every few minutes. I also noticed and the guy confirmed as he cursed, “Another wretched eel!”, that all he was hauling in were eels! Nonetheless at least he was catching something.

An hour must have passed and I had long since sat down. The man was still cursing his luck and still reeling in the eels, while I was cursing the fact that he seemed to be stealing them all!

When I had finally given up several hours later, the final results went something like this, “man up the bank, at least 30 eels, and little ole me, 2 pieces of weed and a crisp packet!”

A couple of years later on a holiday in Wales, I went one better! In the midst of one of the most powerful earthquakes in the UK for years, I was net fishing in a stream and caught my first minnow! Hooray! I didn’t find out about the earthquake till later because I hadn’t felt a thing.

It is fair to say I am no expert fisherman but I have always retained an interest in fishing despite my humble beginnings.

Saltwater Fishing- Get The Best Fishing Reels

Irrespective where you are fishing the fishing reels must be the best quality and not let you down. If you are in the process of building your fishing kit, you should pay particular attention to the kind of equipment you are putting together. A penny pinched here and there could cost you a prized trophy on any of your fishing trips. There are different sets of equipment for different game. You definitely so not want to fish for shark with a rod and reel designed to go after carp do you? As you gain experience an angler you will be adding equipment to your fishing gear. You should only add the best and proven equipment if you want to prevent frustration and disappointment on any of your fishing trips.

The reel on your fishing rod is a very important bit of equipment, especially if you are fishing in the salt waters of the deep seas. The size of the fish that you can hook can be monstrous and put up a big fight when you try to land it. The reel is essentially a set of gears that facilitate reeling in a huge weight. When you hook a large fish such as a Marlin or a shark you will ensure that you are able to bring it in without losing your equipment. This is the reason many fishing boats have a seatbelt for the angler and a fastening system for the rod as well. The saltwater fishing reel is designed to lock in a way that will prevent the reel from un-winding. The gears on the reel facilitate the angler to effortlessly reel in the fish a little at a time.

If you hook a large fish it is going to put up a great fight to prevent you from bringing it in. You will have to be patient if you do not want to lose your hook and lure. Reel in the fish slowly allowing it to swim and trash around in the water. If your fishing rod is secured to the boat you do not have to worry about losing it, at the most you will have to cut the line and let the fish go. But if you have patience, and the right equipment, you can have the biggest fish for a trophy. Basically you’re fishing reel and line is what should not let you down.

Salt water fishing reels differ in size and use. A reel too big will not serve the purpose of fishing for smaller fish and a small reel will not be any use when you are fishing for big game. Experience will teach most of what you need to know about fishing and the equipment that is just right for the game you are after. Experienced anglers will teach you where to get that equipment from.

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.
