If you plan to fish by the shore, small tackle boxes that can fit in your bag may be enough. When bank fishing, just bring one small tackle box as it would be easier to carry than having to drag around a large one. You’ll likely need to update your box with the appropriate fishing tackles for each of your trips in order to be able to bring a small box.
Fishing rods consist of a slender pole made of strong but pliable materials. When combined with a fishing line and reel, the rod allows you to cast your line far into the water. Rods vary depending on what type of fishing you plan on doing and typically are classified by their action (how far it bends), strength (power), taper and responsiveness. Rods typically are made from graphite or fiberglass.
We get a lot of emails from anglers that are just getting into fly fishing asking us about the basic setup to get started in the sport. That's why we came up with this short list of essentials. Of course, there are lots of other elements to include as one progresses in fly fishing, but these are the basic tools that will help beginners catch their first fish on the fly.
We recommend using an 8-wt or 9-wt. 9' rod with both floating WF and WF rapid sink tip lines with 20 - 30 lb. test backing (the same outfit may be used for Trout and Northern). Use a 14 - 18 lb. test tapered leader/tippet, and wire leaders are essential. With floating lines you may wish to use a fly line one size up from the rod weight-an 8-wt. rod uses a 9-wt. line.

When fishing, the most important tool to have on the water is a rod/pole. This acts as a lever, allowing the fisherman to play a fish and ultimately bring it to shore. Both words, rod, and pole are sometimes used interchangeably, many fishermen use both terms ubiquitously when describing their gear. There are differences, and if we dig deeper into the definitions, the contrast begins to make sense.

The bad news is that all together this kit still costs a pretty penny. The good news is that you don’t need to get it all right now. If money is an issue, start out with the absolute essentials: rod, reel, fly line, leaders, tippet and flies. In the summer on smaller streams, you can always wade wet (it’s pretty refreshing, actually); a vest should be next on your list, but you can get by without it as long as you stay simple; a hat and polarized sunglasses can wait a payday or two.
If your child has outgrown toddler fishing poles in terms of skill but is still physically too small for a standard adult rod, consider the Zebco Fishing Dock Demon Spinning Combo. Designed for vertical fishing in tight spaces, it’s geared towards adults but is also great for giving kids their first taste of a grown-up set-up. Made of solid Z-glass with an EVA foam handle, the 30-inch rod is both durable and lightweight. Reviewers say that kids as young as two can handle it without assistance.
Available in Hello Kitty or Paw Patrol-inspired designs, the 29-inch rod also telescopically folds to just 17 inches for easy transport. The attached spincast reel comes with a six-pound line already spooled and has a gear ratio of 3.1:1. The combo also includes a casting plug (so that your child can master the basics at home), a snap swivel and a safety hook. The latter is barbless, so there’s no chance of hooked fingers ruining your day out.
Fishing lines are designed to be super sturdy, so you’ll definitely need a cutter to set up a new line or to get out of a snag. Any will do, but fishers typically go for the smallest ones possible, like a nail clipper or knife, so they can easily fit inside a tackle box. If you happen to also dive for fun, you can use the Dive Rite Line Cutter ($24) as a multi-purpose tool. Or, just go for a sharp, handy knife that can also help you chop your bait into small pieces.
Man with lake troutThese fish inhabit the colder, deeper waters and sometimes aren’t as easily caught. But if fished correctly can provide quite a fight and a good dinner to boot. The trout are always willing to bite your line, but getting the baits in front of their face is often times the hardest part in fishing lake trout. During the spring when the water temperature is all the same throughout the lake, trout can be caught in depths as shallow as five feet. But that only lasts a few weeks after ice out. They look for water temperatures of about 46 or 48 degrees. So during the summer months, trout can be found in depths of anywhere between 50 and 100 feet. Trout hang out on steep structure where they can have access to the deep water. So focus on sharp drop-offs.

The common earthworm is a universal bait for fresh water angling. In the quest for quality worms, some fishers culture their own worm compost or practice worm charming. Grubs and maggots are also considered excellent bait when trout fishing. Grasshoppers, flies, bees and even ants are also used as bait for trout in their season, although many anglers believe that trout or salmon roe is superior to any other bait. Studies show that natural baits like croaker and shrimp are more recognized by the fish and are more readily accepted. A good bait for red drum is menhaden.[5] Because of the risk of transmitting whirling disease, trout and salmon should not be used as bait.
The IEBIYO Fishing Pole for Kids is the perfect companion on long-distance trips. It’s also compact enough to keep in the car so that your child can cast a line whenever the opportunity arises. Measuring four feet, six inches in length, the rod features six adjustable sections that collapse to just 13.7 inches. The rod’s fiberglass, ABS and silicone construction keeps it lightweight, tipping the scales at 4.7 ounces.

Other devices which are widely used as bite indicators are floats which float in the water, and dart about if a fish bites, and quiver tips which are mounted onto the tip of the fishing rod. Bite alarms are electronic devices which bleep when a fish tugs a fishing line. Whereas floats and quiver tips are used as visual bite detectors, bite alarms are audible bite detectors.
