A beginners Guide to Fishing Tackle (List of different Fishing tackle varieties)


So you have newly taken up to the lovely sport of fishing or have been at it for many years and happen to just wonder what are the different types of tackle that people use out there? Well we decided to make a chart of the main classes of tackle items used for fishing . We did a little digging and talking with our friends around the world, from different regions and countries and those fishing the seas, ponds, brooks, streams and rivers and thought we would put out a chart just so someone decides to look it up.

We kept the details of the use of each and what situation one can use what, for later date as we take up each tackle piece in the days to come and thought let’s just start by charting the main ones and listing their main varieties. So if you decide to go fishing, you would most definitely need a Fishing Rod, Bait, Reel (or may be a spool), Fishing Line and a Hook (We mean for Rod fishing and not if you decide to shoot spears at your fish). If you are more into the traditional forms you may skip the reel and just stick to a spool to wind in the line but we still feel the majority now go with a reel. And so, we at fishermanshub.com decided to keep the reel as part of the 5 most important tackle pieces needed for fishing. Then you may throw in a weight and/or a float depending on the types of waters and the kind of fish you intend to ferret out. So these seven or rather let us say 5 + 2 form the main elements of your tackle equipment.

              So if you go to see broadly, fishing tackle has the main tackle pieces i.e the Rod, the Line, the Fishing Reel and the bait and what they call as Terminal TackleTerminal Tackle is all the parts of the anglers equipment, excluding artificial or natural baits, attached to the end of a fishing line and these include hooks, floats and sinkers, snapsswivelssnap-swivelsplastic beads and other accessories and equipment that come in the Rod line and bait set up. Landing nets, lip grabbers and other accessories are peripheral fishing tools and not really part of the main setup. But then so to say, if you find yourself stranded on an island all by yourself and decide that you have to learn to fish for the life of it, you could save yourself by conjuring up the first 5 tackle pieces and then as the days go by and you decide to go for more varieties of fish and get more adventurous, you could as well concoct the other 2 and satiate your appetite.
