Let's dive right in.


Basic Supplies Needed in Fishing Kits


To be an amateur fisherman there are basic pieces of fishing equipment needed to complete your fishing kit and your exciting journey into the fishing world.


Matching Rod and Reel


When constructing fishing kits 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 more comfortable fishing.


There are several things that cause the reel to turn into a bird's nest, don't worry, even experienced fishermen encounter this every now and then.


The Main Objective of Fishing Kits

The main objective, when putting together fishing kits, 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 for the rod that come in either cork or foam.


They come in different lengths for the comfort for the user and must be considered; and the reel seat where the reel is connected.


Putting Together Fishing Kits

When putting together your fishing kit take note that 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 will only take a few 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 in fishing kits.

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.


Most Popular Rods


The most popular rods, in most fishing kits, are made with 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.


Fishing Lines

There are a lot of fishing lines to choose from and put in your fishing kit and it can be very confusing to find the best. They are mostly made of nylon and "monofilament" that come 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 rig.


The Basic Rule

The basic rule when putting together fishing kits is that all the gear should match.


To summarize fishing kits, they should include other stuff as well. Such as a 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!
