Undoubtedly the worlds oldest and most favoured pastime is fishing and it is a sport that can be
enjoyed by people of all ages. Fishing is also a sport that is relatively inexpensive to get
into. Just a basic rod and reel is required for your first fishing trip.

There are several forms of fishing: fly fishing which mimics flies landing in the water is a more
active form of fishing. Then you have coarse fishing which falls into two categories: Match
fishing and Carp fishing. Sea fishing in yet another form of fishing and is the most popular

Whatever form of fishing you take up you can begin with just the basics. A local fishing tackle
shop will stock a number of items that will be necessary for your first fishing trip. For lake
and river fishing just a basic rod and reel will be required. Once you have got to grips with the
basics your fishing tackle can be updated as and when necessary. Sea fishing tackle is far heavier
and includes bigger reels and rods and a much stronger line. Sea fishing tackle needs to be far
more substantial due to the further casting distances and strength of the fish you're playing.
For fly fishermen the basics will include a fly rod and a spinning reel. Once again, as you learn
the sport these items can be upgraded when necessary.
