Fishing Equipment for Beginners

1. Platinums

One of the important equipment you need is sinker. Everything you throw fishing line You'll need to add one for your fishing line so your line stays balanced as your light hook and bait sink deeper. Make sure you have plenty of extra sinkers on hand as you will lose them at some point during the hunt, especially for those fishing for long periods of time. Platinums are traditionally made from lead, but newer ones are more environmentally friendly such as brass, tungsten, steel and bismuth. 

They also produce different shapes and weights depending on how deep you want your hook to go. Additionally, you can also get small split shot sinkers, which are very small round ones that you can easily attach and remove from your fishing rod. Split shots can keep your longer bobbers afloat in the water (when stacked on the bottom of your float) in addition to helping you keep the bait close to your desired depth.

2. Swivel

You will find that some live or artificial baits will twist your line until it bends. The swivel can act as a connecting device between the line and the bait, allowing your bait to spin and move freely (as in the case of live bait) without affecting the line.

The swivel has a loop on each end, but you can make it differently or add a snap to help save time and effort when rigging live baits and lines. However, be aware that the snaps on quick swivels can break easily, especially when catching larger fish. Therefore, it is beneficial to buy quality ones.

3. Hookup

Needle nose pliers are the equipment you will use to remove hooks from fish. Thanks to needle-nose pliers, you eliminate the risk of hurting yourself while removing the fish with sharp teeth or the tip of the hook. You may also need needle-nose pliers to remove the hooks from your skin in case of an accident.

Basically any pair of needle-nose pliers will do, but you're better off getting stainless steel ones with a bent, angled tip. This will make it easier to remove and/or bend the hooks for a better arc.

4. Line cutter

Fishing rods are designed to be super tough, so you'll definitely need a cutter to set up a new rod or clear an obstacle. This kitty could be anything. But anglers often choose the smallest tools possible, such as a small pair of scissors or a pocket knife, so they can easily fit in a tackle box. Choose a sharp and useful cutting tool that can also help you cut your fish food into small pieces.

5. Sunglasses

When fishing in bright sunlight, it can sometimes be difficult to see where the fish are as the sun can create glare on the surface of the water. You'll need good sunglasses with polarized lenses that allow you to better see below the surface and pinpoint the fish's location. At the same time, polarized sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun's harmful UV rays.

6. First aid kit

Even though we want to have safe and fun fishing adventures, accidents can happen occasionally. In case of minor injuries that may occur as a result of accidents, you should have a handy first aid kit with you. You should prepare a small pack with some band-aids, small bandages, waterproof medical tape, and antibacterial ointment in case a hook gets stuck in your hand or anywhere else.

7. Sunscreen

Speaking of safety, another thing you should definitely not forget is the sunscreen you will use to provide extra protection for your skin. Even if you're wearing long clothing, if you'll be fishing in the sun all day, be sure to apply a sunscreen formula to all exposed skin areas. It is beneficial for the sunscreen to be small in size. This way, the sunscreen can fit into your fishing tackle box and take it with you every time you go fishing.

8. Tool bag

The tackle bag is essential for storing all your gear, hooks, sinkers, bait, pliers and all your other small tools. It will not only help you move your belongings but will also keep everything organized.

Fishing tackle comes in many shapes and sizes depending on the type of fishing you are into (sports or recreation), preferred fishing style, the size of fish you will catch, and many other factors.

If you plan to fish from the shore, small fishing tackle boxes that can fit in your bag may be sufficient. When shore fishing, simply bring a small fishing tackle as it will be easier to carry than a large box.
