Fishing is an activity practiced by millions of people. Close to nature, fishermen spend whole days improving their techniques, while taking full advantage of what the Earth offers them. Unfortunately, fishing sometimes suffers from a negative image that makes people who may be interested in discovering it does not dare. However, starting the practice remains relatively easy.

Whether you are a regular in this sport, a novice in the field, or wanting to learn how to fish for your children, here are 5 tips for successful fishing,

Top Fishing Gear!

Before going fishing, it must be ensured that the equipment is ready and above all maintained.

It should be known, the fishing line, if it is nylon, deteriorates after 4 to 5 years. It should, therefore, be replaced regularly. Be careful also to the reel: its brake must be well adjusted otherwise the line breaks in case of “big catch” or, funny, it could be well carried by it.

These few hours of fishing may turn into a nightmare if you bring bad equipment with you! On the spot, every minute dedicated to unraveling a knot is one minute less dedicated to your sport. It is also necessary to choose a material adapted to the type of fishing that one practices.

•    If your goal is to bring a pike home, get a rod with a strong wire and a branch line (end part of a fishing line) made of steel or carbon to avoid cutting yourself.

•    For catch fishing at day or night with Best Underwater Fishing Lights, we launch priming in the form of a ball that creates a fragrant cloud attracting fish to the desired place. Use a fairly thin line. The primer (food) must also be adapted according to the place where it is launched. Depending on whether the water is hot or cold, the primer will be saltier or sweeter for optimal diffusion.

Fishing at the Right Time

Predicting a fishing day in advance is not always a good idea. We must find the right moment and the best weather conditions. The ideal is when a thinning is at the tip of your nose or when you go from bad weather to good weather and vice versa. The twilights of the evening and the morning also represent good timing.

Security

At the scene, the focus should be on safety, especially in the presence of children. This is the first thing to teach a young fisherman before he even teaches him to set his own line.

When handling the fishing rod, an accident happened quickly. There must be a space rather extended to a safe movement without disturbing others. Adults should also make sure the fishing line is of an ideal length, not too long. The hook must be adapted to the type of fishing chosen because it remains a formidable weapon that can easily hurt someone or even an eye out!

Watch well

Before you begin, carefully observe the body of water where you go fishing. You have to have a good eye to find the “posts“, that is to say, the places where the fish are lurking. If you are at the edge of a pond, there is a good chance that trout and pike, are found in deep places, where they there is vegetation or in the dead arms of the pond.

Be as discreet as possible

At the edge of the pond or the river, be as discreet as possible! The fish are particularly fierce animals. They have a sideline that allows them to detect vibrations. Every wave caused by man can make them run away. We must, therefore, teach the youngest to fish in peace and to make as little noise as possible so as not to disturb them.
