So you are about to start your first fishing trip? You don’t have an idea on what to bring? Well, I have good news for you, it is not complicated as you might think. Apart from bringing fishing equipment, there is no big difference between fishing and a regular trip.
Let me tell you what I bring on my regular fishing trip:
FOOD AND DRINKS
It is quite obvious, you have to eat something to remain focused on fishing. It is important to choose proper food for a day. The things I always bring with me:
home-made bread (my favorite recipe), pistachios, protein bars, crackers, and bananas
thermos with hot tea, 2l of water, orange juice
CLOTHES AND ACCESSORIES
You have to be prepared for weather anomalies and other random events. Keep in mind that you are going to spend time surrounded by nature. Apart from obvious benefits, there are also some drawbacks – you are exposed to throng of different insects, such as mosquitos or forceps. The consequneces of getting bite by one of them may be tragic to you. That’s why I always take with me:
Anti-bug spray, raincoat, walkie-talkie, fleece, GPS, emergency kit, sunscreen protection cream, some cash for unexpected expenses.
You have to be prepared for the worst scenario. In case of storm, you might get stuck on some small island or even worse, on the water. In order to survice you need some special equipment. That’s why I always bring with me:
Sleeping bags, flashlights, sleeping pad, matches, flare, personal flotation device, thermoactive appareal, and tent.
I hope that you will find this information useful and enjoy your first fishing trip. Fishing is a lot fun, but you need to be prepared for unexpected. As usual, I strongly advise on fishing on your own. Try to go there with at least one of your friends.
