Smart Camper’s Voice: Preparing for Your Fishing Trip
How to Get Ready for a Fishing Trip
Whether you’re preparing to cast after work or for a week, here are a few things to take into account:
Lots of Water & Enough Food
On short trips, a water bottle and snack bar may get you by. Longer trips require more provisions.
Fishing Gear to Match the Game Fish
There are countless species of fish in the world’s rivers, oceans, and lakes. There are also many different ways to fish for them. You can look for different techniques in books or on the Internet. Fishing is a broad subject, but it is important to find out about the species and the climate in the particular region where you will fish. Then, let conditions dictate and get the specific gear to match your game fish.
Basic gear includes a fishing rod and reel, line, and terminal tackle such as hooks, sinkers, swivels, corks, nets, lures, and pins. If you use artificial lures, you can just take them out of the box, but if you use organic bait, you can store it in film canisters.
As fishermen, we are fans of Denver Tent Company because it’s one of the largest manufacturers of sportsmen and outfitter products in the USA. We use their tents and the Arcticreel, which has become a necessary part of the basic gear for us fishermen. It is functional, lightweight, and easily carried through the underbrush or willows. The Arcticreel keeps your fish cool and fresh through an entire day of fishing. It is made from flax canvas imported from Scotland, and it works on the principle of the desert water bag. Evaporation greatly reduces the temperature within, keeping your fish in just-out-of-the-water condition. A washable plastic liner ensures a clean, fresh creel after years of use.
I suggest that you ask for the products Denver Tent Company offers for campers, fishermen, recreational sportsmen, and in general, outdoor enthusiasts. Their products combine the best of long-term historical experience, craftsmanship, and knowledge with the latest technologies in fabric, materials, and construction techniques.
