Fishing Megastore Fishing Kits

Fishing is not only pleasurable, it's an adventure! You get to visit loads of new places, explore new rivers, lakes and maritime environments. It could be simply relaxing on the bank watching and waiting for a small float to bob up and down, waiting for a Pike to smash into your lure or chasing Bonefish from a skiff in Cuba. Sometimes the journey to your venue can be a simple stroll, other times it could be a long journey that takes you through some spectacular scenery. There's even the possibility that you need to trek to your chosen venue, for example a hill loch or remote river that requires some navigation. Whatever the scenario, with fishing, there's always the potential for adventure and to create valuable memories.

To experience these new adventures for yourself or with family and friends, you don't need to break the bank to buy some simple yet effective fishing tackle. For example you could be on family camping trip near the sea shore or a lake; next to a pier where there are plenty of species to go after; or live near a commercial coarse of fly fishery where you can spend a few hours in the great outdoors. In each of these scenarios, having some rudimentary gear is all you need, and if you are a beginner, simplicity is key. It's easy to get bamboozled by all the latest fishing tackle developments and terminology. Having some knowledge is helpful if you want to get by however not necessary if you are to have a memorable experience. Case in point is the Mackerel season. During this period there is an abundance of fish - in most cases - where they migrate to the warmer sea temperatures in the UK to feed on Plankton and small Baitfish. Having a 9ft or 10ft spinning rod, some 15-20lb line and few silver lures, Mackerel feathers and some lead weights is all you need. Obviously you need to have some rudimentary knowledge of setting the rod up and tying knots etc but once you've grasped those basics, there is a wide variety of maritime environments to explore: off rocks, piers, sea lochs, even from the sea shore!
