Summer (auxiliary) fishing gear

 

In summer you are free to take part in any outdoor activity you wish without worrying about the cold, wind or rain. If you love summer fishing trips with your friends, you should know what the most suitable gear you should take with you is, besides the appropriate rods and reels.

 

During summer days, people are not the only ones going outdoors. All sorts of insects surface, particularly nasty mosquitos. That is why I consider a bug spray to be the first item you throw in your bag before going on a fishing trip. Remember that mosquitoes spend most of their time near water, so you’ll spend a lot of time together.

Your second worry should be the sun. In hot summer days, spending more time seated in the same place can be quite dangerous for your skin and for your well-being. Make sure you use sunscreen when you leave your place and that you carry a tube with you on the trip.

Add some more protection against the sun by wearing a big hat with a neck cape so that you are entirely protected. Also, light clothes, made with materials that let the air protrude freely through the fabric will make your stay more comfortable, because you won’t have to deal with pouring rivers of sweat.

A comfy tent or at least a sleeping bag is something you must take with you, if you’re planning to go on a fishing trip, even though you plan on returning the same day. Who knows, maybe your adventure sense awakens and you decide to spend a night or several into the wild. And, if you’re staying up late, don’t forget to have a lantern at hand always.

Don’t forget to take a tackle box with you, where all your gear can be organized in a proper way. Even though you may know what the fishing conditions are, things can change on the spot: the water can be filled with vegetation that can trap your bait, tangle your line, break your fishing rod, etc. That is why you should be prepared: have bait and line that floats, a sturdy rod and spare parts and bait, just in case you might get in a tricky situation.

 

You may leave home confident that you will catch plenty of fish to feed yourself on the spot (after cooking it on a barbecue, of course so let’s not forget about the barbecue and some kitchen utensils you can use to cook your fish), but you must definitely take some food with you, at least a sandwich or two. Especially if you are headed towards a remote place, there’s a big chance that you don’t find a place where you can procure food supplies for the day and fishing isn’t nearly as fun when you have the collywobbles.

 

Finally, let’s not forget about the fun part: friends and beer. A summer fishing day is nothing without your friends and a good cold beer (oh, yes, ask a friend to bring an ice bucket to store the beer in). If you have them, everything will sort itself out in the end.

Money saving tips

 

Fishing and hunting gear can cost a lot of money, and some of it might be spent accidentally. If you don’t know that you’ll be getting the best value for the right price, perhaps you ought to refrain from purchasing that new line, lure, reel, or rod. In addition, being a bit conscious about the things you already own and whether or not they’re still usable enough to raise up to par is the right way to go about things. Do you really need a professional rod and reel combo in order to catch that bass? Or can you do with the ones you already own?

While some people argue that saving money when shopping for fishing and hunting equipment is close to impossible, we’re here to disagree. One of the first pieces of advice that we can give you is to research the products online. On the one hand, this practice will let you find out about the opinions that other buyers have about the units you may want to spend your dollars on. On the other hand, reading reviews and other articles will allow you to understand your needs a whole lot better and manage to correlate your personal requirements with the features of the model you wish to buy.

Have you ever taken advantage of such a discount? While many of the items you may want to get can strictly be ordered by using the services of the magazine, some of these can be found online. What’s more, utilizing websites such as Amazon or the one of the manufacturing brand is an excellent way to benefit from seasonal sales and discounts. Whenever fishing season begins, most online retailers will organize some sort of promotion. Be sure to compare the prices you’ll find in most of these marketplaces as this will allow you to get the best one.

Whether you’re looking for consumables, a hunting row, or a rod and reel, the fact of the matter is that you pay attention to your expenses in order to get the bang for the buck. If you have hunters or fishermen among your friends, don’t hesitate to contact them and ask for their opinion when deciding on one model over the next. With the experience they may have accumulated over the years, they may be capable of giving you precious advice that you wouldn’t receive from a salesperson interested strictly in selling as many pricey products as possible. It goes without saying that consultants have their role in the entire decision-making process, but often times it is recommended to make up your mind by yourself. A fellow hunter or fishermen may sometimes want to get rid of the items he or she is not using anymore. In that case, you ought to be part of your local community and find out if the units that these people might be selling aren’t precisely the ones you may be looking for.

How to find affordable and quality hunting gear?

 

Hunting has never been a cheap activity and there are probably only a few passionate people that are willing to invest in a capable hunting gear. Moreover, a skilled hunter knows you can’t afford buying cheap hunting equipment, as you never know what dangers await you during a hunt. In some cases, you may need to adapt some of the equipment you possess to fit the places you go hunting or add new pieces to your kit. As such, you need to find ways through which you can buy hunting gear that is functional and doesn’t make you spend your whole salary on it. So, what can you do for that?

 

      Keep yourself informed

 

magazinesIf you want to put your hands on the best hunting gear at the best price, you must always be informed. You choose how: either through magazines that you receive in your mailbox, brochures from various stores or accounts on various hunting gear pages that will afterwards send you email with all their offers and new arrivals. Don’t forget to keep in touch with local stores as well, to make sure you are the first person to know when new products arrive.

Why should you always be informed? Well, periodically, many stores have on sale products, when they propose advantageous packages that you can buy at half the price you would have otherwise paid for them. The problem with these is that you never know when they happen and how much they last, so you must be prepared for any opportunity that arises. The same for online newsletters, the more you subscribe to, the more chances you get to find quality products at lower prices.

 

      Don’t ignore garage sales

 

garage saleHunting is not an activity anyone can handle, at a certain age or due to various circumstances like moving, people decide giving up their hunting gear next to a great part of their things, as they are no longer useful. Many of them will advertise the sale on social media (so make sure you are a member of Facebook hunting groups), in papers or through flyers and posters. Scout your area for any upcoming garage sale events and see what they have in store for you.

Do your shopping online

 

As you may already know, there are a few websites that specialize in selling new or second hand products. Sometimes, those you find online can be cheaper than the ones you find in specialized stores. Periodically, check web pages such as Craiglist, CamoFire or Dvor that are all reliable web pages from which you can purchase great hunting gear. The last two are even specialized in hunting items. On the other hand, you could also find items that are affordable to buy from the local store, while they are pricier online.

      

Keep in touch with fellow hunters

 

Those belonging to the same community will always be inclined to help fellow members in need, give away stuff they don’t use anymore (not necessarily that is broken, but items that don’t fit, for example) or trade them for useful pieces of equipment. Either way, these will be cheaper than buying them from a store. And, as many hunters will buy quality equipment, knowing what’s best for them, quality will be guaranteed.
