Fishing Basics

In the sport of fishing, an angler’s equipment and understanding of fish behavior and habitats are two of the most important elements toward a fulfilling fishing adventure.

Similarly, understanding how to properly clean, prep and cook your catch can also impact your fishing experience, as can knowing how to correctly release a fish back into the water to be caught another day.

Here you’ll find basic information about fishing equipment and techniques that will help you make the most of your time on the water.
