Learn To Fish

Even if you’re new to fishing, you’re probably familiar with tackle such as rods, reels, line and bait. But the chances are that what goes between those final two things is something of a mystery to you, which is precisely why this week at Angling Direct is Terminal Tackle Week.

Terminal tackle is the tackle that goes at the end of your line, which is made up of things you likely know at least a little something about, like hooks, floats and leads, and things that are far from being common knowledge, like feeders, leaders and Spods.

While terminal tackle is far from the most cutting-edge area of fishing, it is certainly among the most important. It’s the business end of every angler’s setup, the first bit of your kit that will make direct contact with a fish and what you’re relying on to start the process of landing that fish.

And while terminal tackle isn’t exactly high-tech next to the latest bait boats and bite alarms, it can be tricky to get to gripa with because there are thousands of different products available that can be combined in myriad ways. When it comes down to it, it doesn’t how much money you’ve spent on reels and rods - if you haven’t got the right terminal tackle, your chances of catching the fish you’re targeting are slimmer than a lamprey.

This is why, to mark Terminal Tackle Week, we have put together this range of Learn To Fish packs. Whether you’re new to fishing and aren’t sure where to start when it comes to terminal tackle or you’re an experienced angler looking to learn new methods, these packs are a great shout, as they contain everything you need to get started 

The Learn To Fish Float Pack provides all the kit for float fishing, including a selection of floats and baits and ready-made rigs from innovative tackle brand Guru. Float fishing is how many anglers start out. It’s an exciting method of fishing because it involves constantly checking the float to see if you’ve got a bite, and it’s a good way of honing your watercraft.

Containing feeders, connectors, dedicated feeder groundbait and carp pellets, the Learn To Feeder Fish Pack contains the essentials for feeder fishing. This is when groundbait or pellets are pushed into a feeder along with your hookbait, and then the feeder is cast into the water. This presents your hookbait to the fish amid freebies - bait intended to attract fish and get them accustomed to it being safe to take - released by the feeder. It’s popular in coarse and match fishing, as well as carp fishing.

Method feeder fishing, which the Learn To Method Feeder Fish Pack provides the kit for, is a newer, more deadly take on feeder fishing. These teardrop-shaped feeders have several ridges that hold your groundbait mix in place and their aerodynamic shape makes them easy to cast, while their open-top design means they release the bait quickly, giving you more time to get a take.

Comprising a shouldered stick floats set, ready-made Guru rigs, a catapault for distributing freebies and much more, the Learn To Stick Float Fish Pack has the basics covered when it comes to stick float fishing, which is a great tactic for catching fish in rivers. That’s because stick floats have line attached to the top and bottom, enabling you to control the pace at which they run through moving water, presenting hookbait in a way that mimics the freebies on offer.

So there you have it; whether you’re plunging into terminal tackle for the first time or you’re an old hand looking to increase your effectiveness on the bank, our Learn To Fish packs provide everything you need in a one-stop shop.
