Fishing is a great time killer, and there is nothing better than eating fresh fish and seafood. Whether you want to fish from the beach or a river bank, or in a boat, there is all the equipment to suit your needs.

If you prefer the bush, you can try fly fishing in a lake or dam. Fly fishing is considered a bit more challenging than conventional fishing, but once you get the hang of it you will be fine.

Deep sea and game fishing are great fun and very exciting when you get that big hook up. You can look at going on a one day charter, or stay on the boat for a few nights or even a week! There are lots of charter operators heading out from a wharf near you.

To get started you will need some of the following fishing gear,

  • Rods
  • Reels
  • Fishing line
  • Hooks
  • Sinkers
  • Swivels
  • Traces
  • Lures
  • Floats
  • Burley and burley buckets
  • Fishing knives
  • Tackle boxes
  • Jigs
