A little about fishing

So you’ve seen someone fishing and now you want to learn how to get fishing yourself? Fantastic! Fishing is a brilliant sport that get you outside amongst nature, is cheap to do and is extremely fun.

Basically, the most popular type of fishing involves a reel fitted with line which is mounted on to a rod, on the end of the line is a hook with some bait to attract a fish.

And that’s pretty much everything you need to know about fishing…

Wait, there's a little more to it...

There are a few different types of fishing that you should read in to before you get out there and have a go! Knowing those different types of fishing and techniques used to fish allows the complete beginner to stand a great chance of catching a fish on their very first go.

Have a read through the pages in the top navigation menu, narrowing your search by what information you are looking for.

Now that you have a general idea of what fishing is all about, you need to find a place to fish! I’m currently in the process of creating an interactive directory of all fishing spots for both sea, Stillwater and river fishing throughout the UK, which I will make available publicly in the near future. But until then, you’ll just have to rely on your Googling skills to find a place to fish.

The filter options we have on each of the shop category pages allow you to specify characteristics of a product that you are looking for. The filter function will narrow down the search results depending on the criteria that our suppliers include when uploading products to the website initially.
