Fishing is a gear-first sport. If you’ve been fishing for years, now is the time to pull your kit out of the garage to repair, replace, and improve. And if you’ve gotten the fever but don’t yet have your kit, it’s time to pool your funds, do some research, and figure out what you need on your fishing gear checklist. There’s a lot you’ll need, depending largely on the type of fishing you’ll be doing. For those specialized items, best to find a local tackle store and ask some questions. But here’s the important stuff that most all types of fishermen need. Don’t forget the cooler. In most parts of the country, cold beer is just as vital as a rod.

A fishing gear is the tool with which aquatic resources are captured, whereas the fishing method is how the gear is used. Gear also includes harvesting organisms when no particular gear (tool) or boat is involved. Furthermore, the same fishing gear can be used in different ways by different fishers.
