You would think it’s pretty straight forward when it comes to choosing 3 must-have things to take on a fishing trip: rods, reels, bait and lures bang you’re done. But I’m going to tell you three things you must take that are less obvious – but just as important.
“Pics, or it didn’t happen”– is a quote I often here. We live in a world where we need to prove our stories through social media so getting your mates to believe you caught that fish of a lifetime is only one click away. There’s hundreds of different options you can choose from such as phones, Go Pros, drones and various other point and shoot style cameras. And itt’s not just about taking a photo of your catch either, it’s capturing memories, sunsets, sunrise, getting a visit from dolphins or even a large shark. Being able to relive these moments days, weeks, even years later is almost as good as when it happened.
A good quality leader is extremely important, it could be the difference in getting a bite, pulling the hooks, or getting busted off. The range of Unitika leaders have you covered for most situations like fluorocarbon leaders for bream, light inshore lure work and heavy shock leader to take the shock out of the line when fish strike on the troll – this is especially important when using braid.
3. A good quality fishing shirt
Your old fluoro work shirt might be convenient because your happy to wipe your fishy hands on them but that’s about it. A top-quality fishing shirt will be UV protective covering your skin from harmful rays as well helping to keep you cooler. On top of climate comfort and sun protection add insect protection to the list of benefits! These are all just a few things that aren’t necessarily the most important but definitely make the experience a lot more enjoyable.
