Fishing Coarse Tackle Buying Guide
Historically in the UK, recreational fishing was regarded as a sport of the upper class. The clever and elusive trouts, salmons and chars were the game fish of choice, and to fish for any other type of species would have considered "coarse fishing."
Essential Fishing Coarse Tackle
- Rods are available in small, medium big size with varying handles to handle fish of any size and weight. You need to choose fishing coarse rods based on your experience and type of fish to be caught. For instance, special rods are used by dedicated pike and carp fishermen while persons new to fishing can choose the float rod which is a general purpose rod.
- Reels are most often found as fixed spool reels which are available in various sizes and can be easily used. The arm system is very simple and can pick up the line at the turn of the handle. Other types include multiplier reels, large reels and centre pin reels. You can choose bigger reels for handling bigger fish like carp or barbel and centre pin reels can be chosen for float fishing.
- Lines and hooks are also available in various forms and are used for holding fish of more than four lbs. The type of the lines chosen would vary with the type of bait used. If you do not want to cause more damage to fish then you need to choose barbless hooks and it also helps in unhooking easy and quick. You can select small hooks when using maggots as bait and can select larger hooks when using baits like cheese, luncheon meat cube or lobworm.
- Floats and legers are normally used for suspending bait in Stillwater or down the river. Legers are normally used for keeping the bait in gravel pits situated deep inside the river or on the bed of the river.
