Before going deeper into the technicalities, make sure that a fishing
license is secured. To be an amateur fisherman there are basic pieces of
fishing equipment needed to complete your exciting journey in the fishing
world. Knowing the line type and matching the right rod and reel to the
fishing technique is just basic common sense. Match these tools
appropriately and expect a more enjoyable experience for a more
comfortable fishing. There are several things that causes the reel to
turn into a bird's nest, don't worry, even experienced fishermen
encounter this every now and then.

The main objective is to match the rod, the reel, the line and the lure.
These will only cost a newbie around $25 to $40 and they could last for
years. The 3 main issues when shopping for a rod are: Guides that are
attached to the rod; Grip or handle holds the rod and could come in
either cork or foam. They come in different lengths so the comfort to
the user must be considered; and the reel seat where the reel is

Dealers make a lot of fishing rods that could either be single or consist
of two or more pieces when assembled. The connection is very simple;
just connect the male and female ends together to make sure the guides
are lined up. This would only last for a minutes. Sometimes, lubricants
are needed. When shopping for a rod, slightly bend it to get the feel of
it. Again comfort should be considered when using the equipment.

Rods of any type will work. It should be around 6' long and medium
weight. Even a long stick will work. This should be long, straight and
flexible so it will not easily break. The most popular rod is Graphite
because it is so light yet so strong. Wispy rods should be up to 4m long
to be used for long casts in moderate winds.

There are a lot of fishing lines to choose from and it can be very
confusing to find the best. It is mostly made of nylon and
"monofilament" that comes in spools of different lengths that are called
Tests. The larger the fishing line the thicker it is in diameter. Find
a piece of a 4lb. or 4 lb. Test that is almost 10' long for the basic

The basic rule is that all the   gears should match. To summarize your
fishing kit, it should include   other stuff as well: net, stringer, line
clippers, fishing knife, first   aid box, a pail of bait, sunglasses,
fishing hat, and talking about   the basics, don't forget your SNACKS!
