LINES, HOOKS, LEADS, AND FLOATS
Learn more about basic fishing equipment. What are the different types of lines, hooks, sinkers and floats that you can use for fishing, practical fishing tips, and more?
In addition to a rod and reel, you will need a fishing line and fishing gear.
The fishing line is a special line that is incredibly strong and capable of withstanding the bite and battle of a fish. It can be made of many different materials, but monofilament is the most common and easiest to use if you are learning to fish.
The fishing line is manufactured in different thicknesses and strengths; this is advertised on the packaging as a “pound test”. A 10-lb test line should hold ten pounds before bursting; a 30-lb test line can hold 30 pounds, and so on. For beginners, it is wise to choose a line of about a 10-lb test.
Hooks and floats are known as fishing tackle, and they are the accessories that are tied with knots to the end of your line and that will help you catch a fish. Learn more about each of them.
These are important because they secure your line to the fish when the fish bites. Most hooks are j-shaped, but there are a few for conservation in case you plan to fish and release. As you can imagine, all fishing hooks are sharp, so handle them carefully at all times. Fishing hooks come in different sizes and are generally offered by number, from the smallest (size 32) to the largest (size 19/0). For hooks numbers 32 to 1, the higher the number, the smaller the hook. On hooks sizes 1/0 (called “one aught”) to 19/0, the higher the number, the larger the hook size. If you are learning to fish and plan to catch small fish (from a lake or lagoon), you should choose small hooks such as sizes 6 to 10.
These are weights added to your line to help sink your bait to the bottom of the water. They can also be used to anchor your line so that it won’t drift away if the current is strong.
These are circular or cylindrical in shape, and they help keep your bait at a certain depth. They also function as indicators (when a fish has hooked on your bait, your float will sink). They are very useful when starting with small fish such as panfish.
