Continuing our look at some of the best gear used by Fishbrain pro staff, we caught up with Misty Wells to talk about her bass setup. Normally known for her saltwater fishing, Misty is packing her bass gear on the way to a fishing tournament hosted by country music start, Luke Combs.
When the weekend nears, we can feel the anxiety build up. We want to be back on the water and we want to be there as soon as we can. When the alarm goes off Saturday morning, we are often out the door like a shot, heading toward our favorite body of water and another adventure in fishing. With this rush, however, often comes the habit of leaving some of our precious gear behind.
There are many differences between fly fishing and conventional spinning tackle, but the predominant difference is the use of fly line and the different varieties. Choosing the proper fly line is not always obvious, as they come in several different varieties and some can be used for overlapping situations. Below is Fishbrain's guide to the diferent fly line types and which kind you should choose for each fly fishing situation.
We are looking at a few of those rods and reels that we have always wanted, but just couldn't pull the trigger on. We don't just dream of far off destinations and exotic species, sometimes our dreams are about that beautiful new rod, or reel that may not need, but know we deserve.
This holiday season, we hope you take the opportunity to stoke the fishing fire in the next generation of anglers, just as it was stoked in you. Here we offer some of our favorite gifts, from the Fishbrain store, to not only get children interested in fishing, but help them take that next step into making it a lifelong passion.
