GearIn order to be successful at freshwater fishing there are a few items that you need to have. One item that is necessary is your fishing rod and reel. The rod is the long flexible shaft that helps to cast and aim the line that is held within the reel. Another important item to have with you when fishing is a pliers and/or hookout. With these you can ensure that you will be able to get the hook out of the fish's mouth in the least amount of time possible. One of the most important things to have with you is a tackle box. Inside the tackle box you will want to keep all of your lures and other tools. You can also store your fishing license in the tackle box.
