Fresh Bait

A lot of Fish enjoy fresh bait, to be the most playful and get the most out of the fishing experience. Using a bucket that keeps the water fresh and the water at reasonable temperature to keep the bait fish alive and kicking for longer.

Artificial Lures

There are many types of artificial lures on the market, some that take on the texture and smell of the real one just saves on the time catching bait and more time spent fishing.

Also some fish are attracted to the sparkling metal lures and this saves the awful smell of bait, and catching bait, resuable in most cases. The cases where the hook and lure are able to be retrieved from a fish.

Lures depend on the type of fish you are trying to catch, some like holographic lures, slimy lures, smelly lures and lures with the appearance of movement. This really depends on the type of fish you are trying to snag.

Rods and reels

There are many types of rods and reels. Depending on where and how you like to fish are the considerations that you could make.

Telescopic Rod

Telescopic rods are fantastic for the travelling sales man or woman, it fits in to a smaller space and keeps the car looking tidy and proffessional while giving the travelling person the ability to unwind when away from home.

Essential fishing gear

Fisherman with the right information, the right bait and the right tools is more likely going to have a sporting time fishing rather than a snoozing time fishing.

Although if you are going to go out to snooze ensure you have you skin covered with a hat, sunscreen and wear a t-shirt. Even maybe get an umberella to sit under and nap. The water acts like a very big mirror and can amplify the suns potency causing you to burn and be too hot and uncomfortable. It is important to look after your skin.

For those who wish to fish, and catch them with some expediency, require the right tools as well as information. Local information is your best bet. However its sometimes hard to get out to chat with locals about their best fishing spot, as we have limited time on holidays and how do we know we aren't talking an ammature? Research as much as possible so you can get out and make the most of your holiday.

River's Edge Fly Fishing Stainless Steel 9 Oz. Pocket Flask

This is an excellent fish lure - the screw top lid is connected to keep the lid with the flask at all times.


Fun fish products for the seriously fish mad

There are so many products for the person who loves fishing for the days where they can't be out fishing.

This to take out fishing, such as the groovey fish lure flask, that can hold whatever takes the fishermans fancy

Or a nice chorme flask with a fish 3d badge for a more tactile, and chrome lover.

Sometimes giving your fisherman a little peice of fishing memorabilia in the home can be a way to bring the relationship closer. I am thinking of allowing the smallest room in the house to have the seat that is sometimes a constant source of battle. A solid toliet seat and it amy help them to remember to put the seat back to see more of the lures. If not it is a nice thought.

The idea of fishing is to eat fish. this requires cutting out bones, after scaling and gutting. If your man enjoys the whole gammet of fishing from the catch to the eating and everything in between then they will appreciate an awesome glass chopping board with beautiful fishes painted on. So that if they enjoy cooking when they haven't been fishing they can relieve the good time of fishing with the pictures.

Silver fish key hook, gorgeous and modern, would look at home in any home and best of all a great gift for you the fishing mad!

Fish shower curtain hooks, hook up the shower curtain with lovely tropical fishes with gorgeous colours.

Cushions for the couch that have gone fishing all over them, are a great present for the fisherman who will enjoy leaving them in strategic positions instead of having to write a note. Win win!

      Thanks guys! Yep the toilet seats are a bit fishy! :)

      K. Burns I am not really one for fishing but it is a hobby of my husband and I try to be supportive and understand what makes it good, and then the household items are things I could live with making compromises over! :)

      I'm not much for fishing, but you seem to have covered all of the bases! Well written hub, and very informative!

      Woa! There cure are a lot of fish products and memorabilia! There IS also in local milk bars, that are acredited to give out fishing licenses, handbooks on the tides and the best times to go for the fish you want. I'm yet to purchase one but I think it would be a very useful gift for the avid fisherman.

      Those toilet seats look a bit fishy :P
