Do you enjoy fishing? We sure do! That’s why we created this website about everything fishing. We are going to cover everything about fishing and the gear needed to do so, everything we mention can be found on this website (http://profishinggearreviews.com/ aka: Pro Fishing Gear Reviews). Every one of our posts is going to cover something new and it will be very in depth and detailed. We are going to start by covering some of the top gear currently on the market and we will talk about the benefits of each and how you can use them to your advantage and make sure that you always have the upper hand when it comes to landing that trophy fish.
First we will begin by covering some of the most necessary gear you will need and then we will move into some of the more luxury gear that can be purchased which will help you to further yourself in your fishing career. To begin we will need to talk about fishing reels and rods. Of course you can always use a long stick and some string but currently we live in the twenty first century and if you’re like me, you probably enjoy living outside of the stone age. So, to begin, you will need to decide on which type of fishing you plan on doing. Are you going to be a fly fisher or a spinning reel/baitcasting reel fisher?
Depending on which type of fishing you choose will greatly dictate the gear you will need. If you decide to become a fly fisher then you will need to get yourself a fly fishing reel and a fly rod. These are vastly different from what you will need if you decide you would rather use a spinning reel or a baitcasting reel. You also much keep in mind that these various types of rods and reel are not interchangeable for the most part. This is something that needs to be taken into consideration when buying your fishing gear.
Another piece of gear you will need if you decide to become a fly fisherman or woman you will need to get yourself a pair of fly fishing waders. These will allow you to walk through the water so you have the ability to go to various areas within the river and it also allows you to get away from any trees or limbs that could be close to shore that can easily get snagged in your line. If you decide to get into spinning reel or baitcaster fishing then you will need to get the needed reels and rods to do so. These types of fishing rods and reels are completely different from fly fishing gear.
These rods are much smaller than a fly fishing rod. Generally speaking fly fishing rods are about 9 ft or longer whereas a rods for spinning rods and baitcasting rods might be 9 ft max. This is due to the fact that while fly fishing you need to repeatedly bring the rod forward and backward in order to get your fine out during casting. This is not the case with with spinning or baitcaster. With these you simple use sheer force to get the line out of the reel and down the rod eyelets. If you do decide to to use a baitcaster or spinning reel the you will more than likely be fishing from shore or from a boat. This means that you will more than likely not need to purchase waders because you will not be getting in the water, but if you do want to use a spinning reel or baitcaster while wading you can totally do that. That is completely up to you!
That’s one of our favorite things about fishing. You can virtually do it however you want to. And no matter how long you’ve been fishing or if it’s you first time, you could be the one to pull in the big fish. All you need is to be in the right place at the right time and you could be the one who finally catches Moby Dick. So get out there and start casting some line, you never know what you might catch!
