The sport and art of fishing has kept men, and women, fascinated for centuries. At one time, fishing was a survival skill, with fish providing food in the days before the mass-market food and grocery industry. Today, people fish for pleasure, although many still cook and eat their catch. Depending on where you fish and what type of fishing you practice, different fishing kits cater to different needs. Learn about different fishing kit options to learn which one is right for you.
Freshwater Accessory Kits
Find everything you need to make the catch with a freshwater fishing kit, like the Abu Ready-to-Go Freshwater Kit. With this kit, both novice and experienced freshwater anglers get a 2.7-metre rod, an Abu Cardinal Reel, and 14-pound Trilene line that expands 300 metres. Other freshwater fishing kits provide everything you need to take care of your catch. You can find kits with cleaning and filleting equipment, including knives, scalers, and angler's clippers in a handy tackle box that keeps everything in one place and neatly organised.
