To pursue a new fishing hobby, you will need the right tools to put you on the right track of progress. Instead of going for the cheap stuff, why not invest in fishing gear that lasts long enough for you to improve your skills? Here are some fishing essentials if you are just starting out your luck in the water.
Rods and reels -- There’s an overwhelmingly large selection of fishing rods and reels to choose from. As a beginner, you would want a starter set such as the Zebco Spincast Combo. It comes with two spin cast setups that you can use in different fishing conditions.
Lures -- While there are plenty of lures you can choose from, remember that there are specific lures that cater to specific water conditions and specific fish. A well-rounded option is the Curly Tail Grub and Kastmaster Spoons that are popular among beginners and even expert fishermen.
Fishing line -- Definitely an essential for fishing, a line is what you need to actually bait a fish and reel your catch back in. Most beginners who purchase a pre-spooled reel prefer the Monofilament line. A fluorocarbon line is less visible in the water and resistant to stretching.
