As we’re now diving head first into summer, you may find yourself feeling the urge to get out in the sunshine and cast a line on a fishing adventure! There’s something truly magical about enjoying the great British sunshine at a peaceful and tranquil riverside location. If you truly want to make the most of your angling trip, it could be important to invest in some of the latest fishing gadgets. At The Insurance Emporium, we want to try and help you out when it comes to reeling in a whopper! That’s why we’ve put together this guide on the essential items for your tackle box!
Don’t be a fool, get a tool!
When you’re out on a fishing trip, the odds are that you might find yourself miles away from civilisation and, most importantly, your tool kit! Taking along a multi-tool, such as a pair of Booms Multi-Tool Fishing Pliers, could be one of the best moves that you make. The Booms pliers come with thirteen different tools, meaning that you could be sorted for anything from removing hooks to reel maintenance! They are also made from stainless steel, so should last you a long time and come in handy on countless angling adventures!
Fancy fish finders
Getting on to some more technologically advanced gear, taking along an electronic fish finder might prove useful in tracking down those elusive and slippery customers! There are many options available so, in order to find the right one for you, it may come down to what type of fishing you’ll be doing. These devices use sonar technology to inform you of the presence of schools of fish underwater, as well as depth, underwater obstructions and much more! For a freshwater angler, the Venterior VT-FF001 could be a good choice!
You’ll ‘glove’ this!
With a slippery fish in one hand, a knife in the other and a hook thrown in for good measure, handling your catch could be dangerous work! Getting yourself a good fish handling glove could be important in saving you from a nasty injury. The Lindy fish handling glove could be a good choice, with cut-proof Super Fabric that is designed to protect you from cut and puncture wounds. It might be a ‘glovely’ addition to your fishing tackle!
Answer a glaring problem!
When the sun is shining bright in the sky and reflecting back off the water, sporting a pair of sunglasses could be important in protecting you from that potentially harmful glare. Grabbing a pair of polarized sunglasses, made specifically for fishing, could enhance your experience and save your eyes from potential damage. Maui Jim offer an extensive range of eyewear that could be ideal to protect your peepers during a day’s fishing!
Getting kitted out!
With the unpredictability of the British weather, it might sometimes be difficult to plan in a fishing trip. Imagine having your gear handy at all times, so you could book that cheeky afternoon off work and head for an impromptu fish! Having a travel kit with you could make that a reality. With its padded carry case and five piece rod, The Okuma spinning travel kit could be ideal to keep in the boot of the car for those times when the urge to cast a line becomes too much!
Grabbing the right fishing gadgets could make a ‘reely’ big difference to your angling adventure! It could also be worth considering some Fishing Insurance to protect your gear should anything go unexpectedly awry.
