Here’s some of the basic fishing tackle for Australia that you will need to start with:
Rod and ReelYour rod and reel combo is the most important part of your tackle.Fishing rods start from the inexpensive bamboo and fibreglass to the more expensive graphite and telescopic fishing rods.
There are four kinds of reels: spincast, spinning, baitcast and fly.The best combination of rod and reel depends on what fish you are targeting. A light rod combined with a spinner reel is the easiest to handle for a beginner. In most tackle shops you can buy this as one unit.
You will often hear of this referred to as the filament. It’s one and the same thing. The fishing line can be bought in a wide range of strengths. Stronger fishing lines will have a higher pound test number. An 8 pound test fishing line should suffice when you are starting out.
FloatsFloats help you know when the fish has taken a bite as it will drag the float under the water. Slip bobbers are the best for beginners as they are the easiest to use and adjust.
SinkersSinkers will help keep your line in the water where the fish are instead of just floating on the surface. Split shot sinkers are best for novices.
From the fishing rod racks and fishing pole holders to your fishing clothing, fishing tackle in Australia can be as basic or as advanced as you want it to be. Don’t let it get so complicated that it spoils the thrill of the catch.
If you are just starting out, get your basic gear together and go have a fun day fishing! Once you get the hang of it, you can always add on to the basics.
