Hi today I'm going to show you a little bit about what's out there for fishing equipment and the different types that you need to have. It is your choice what type of fishing you can do but I'm going to show you a different array of items that they all have. First of all there are spinning reels, generally for light tackle fishing, nothing real heavy. This is a fresh water outfit. They do have salt water which is a little bit heavier. It's a lot easier, it's a very easy reel to cast. You just take your finger, flip the bail, throw it out there and then there are fly reels, fly rods. There are several different kinds. There is the click pull reel right here. Then there is ones for heavy duty fish, you want a disc drag reel and with a large arbor. This is a large arbor. It takes a lot of line up with each turn of the reel handle. You always want to get the best quality equipment that you can afford because it is going to last. It's going to last a long time. Then we have also the fly rods which are for definitely a little bit different style fishing than the spinning reels, the spinning fishing outfit. Again you want to get a good quality one. You want to get something that is probably about a five weight if you are fishing for trout or something like that. It's an all around rod. Then you get the larger ones for the bigger fish. It is a just a different form of fishing and then there are several different kinds of lines. You have this new kind of line. It's a nylon braid line. It's called a super line more or less and it's braided nylon microfibers, very strong, very abrasive resistant. Then you have different types of monofilament. This one here is a chameleon line. It really is hard to see in the water for the fish and another one we have is we have some very thin fluorocarbons. So there are a lot of options for fishing out there. It all depends on what you like to do and the best thing you can do is check with your local tackle shop and find out what is best for the type of fishing you want to do.
