What equipment do you recommend for a fishing beginner ?
If you are thinking about getting into fishing , it can be a bit overwhelming looking at some of the prices when you walk into a tackle store , with some rods reaching up to $ 1,000 .
I ’ ve always said , you don ’ t need the most expensive gear for your fishing - that $ 100 rod will catch you the same amount of fish as that expensive rod will .
When purchasing a rod , I suggest getting one that ’ s an “ all rounder “ for the fish you are going to target the most . For example , you can buy a 3-8lb Atomic Arrowz rod ( approximately $ 130 ) which will catch you flathead , whiting , pinkies , bream , squid and much more . You don ’ t need to buy a specific rod for each species if you are just entering the fishing scene . One item that I do always spend more on is a decent squid jig as the cheaper ones don ’ t have the same success as the better jigs .
