HOOK, LINE AND SINKER



BASIC ANGLING FOR THOSE JUST STARTING OUT

 

By: Steve DelTour

 

So you decided you would like to try fishing.  Who knows why?  Maybe you remembered some early childhood experience.  Maybe you have kids and would like them to spend more time in the out-of-doors and less time playing video games. Maybe you have grandkids you want to spend quality time with. It doesn’t really matter why.  But then you go to your local tackle store or better yet a Bass Pro Shop and think, now what?  You are looking at hundreds of rods. Some have reels, some don’t.  Then there are reels with no rods and not all the reels look the same.  And over there you see what looks like thousands of hooks and aisles full of bright colored fishing lures.  And then a wall full of fishing line.  That’s when you start to hyperventilate, the room starts spinning as you try to figure out what to leave to whom in your will!!

 Fear not brave soul!  Things are not as bad as they seem.  While all that fishing stuff can be confusing it can be made much simpler.  You just have to spend a little time planning and thinking about what you want to accomplish.  Fishing can be broken down in its most basic form as a hook, some line and a sinker.  All of those professional fishermen, who make the big bucks, started out just like you.  While you may not want to quit your day job and join the Bassmasters, you and your family CAN enjoy all that a day of fishing can offer.
