Fishing From Scratch
Fishing is an activity millennial. As is well known, it was a common practice of ancient civilizations in search of food, so it is linked to the traditions of many peoples, especially the coastal ones. The well-known fishing rod and hook were not always used. According to some fossils found in caves of Spain and France, the harpoon was the instrument used by the first settlers. It was also common to use arrows and spears in other communities.
The studios account for hooks dating back to the Stone Age, carved from bone, wood, stone, and even mother-of-pearl shell. The first hooks were needle-pointed at both ends. The bait with the characteristic shape that we know today would appear in the Bronze Age. Nowadays it has specialized so much this craft that is known up to four thousand types of hook.
The Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans, in ancient times knew the fishing with cane, line and hook, very similar to as it is done today. Egyptians in the Pharaonic period used to fish in the abundance of the Nile River. The Bible emphasizes in its passages the importance of fishing for these territories, giving it a spiritual connotation by giving the epithet “Fisherman of Men” to Jesus, son of God . In the East, between the Japanese and Chinese people there are indications of fishing with bamboo cane for thousands of years. As is plausible, fishing is linked to the development of societies, both historical, cultural and economic in many countries, which have their main commercial activity.
Fishing as a recreational activity also has its origins hundreds of years ago. There are documents from ancient China where we talk about fishing for entertainment.And approaching the Middle Ages, books of natural sciences explain the best techniques and methods of fishing, as in the case of the Book of San Albano (1496) or The Complete Angler (1653) by Isaac Walton, both published in England. At present, recreational fishing has become for many a profession and the sport fishing championships are common, even many professionals of this sport advocate because it is considered within the Olympic games.
To All These … What Is Fishing
Fishing is the action of taking fish and other animals out of the water. It can be done in inland waters (rivers, lagoons) or in the sea. Today there are different types of fishing, which is done for commercial purposes can be industrial and craft, depending on the techniques and tools used for it, its goal is to obtain the largest number of fish possible for human consumption.
On the other hand, we have recreational fishing (the one at hand here) or sport fishing, which is not lucrative and its primary objective, unlike the previous one, is the recreation. Extracted species are generally returned to their environment so as not to disturb the ecosystem’s equilibrium. This is not to say, that sometimes they are not consumed, in a family bonfire or on a grill, but at this small scale there is no greater environmental impact.
Fishing For All Tastes
Fishing as entertainment offers countless advantages. The main thing is that it can be done by everyone, regardless of age or sex. It can become a very relaxing family activity for the elderly and even fun for the little ones in the house. Also, it is not expensive. If you do not pretend to be a professional, with a simple and economical equipment and basic knowledge, going fishing can become a really gratifying hobby. It is not necessary to have special skills or a specific physical condition to fish.
Contact with nature and explore new places may be the perfect remedy to escape the pressures of the hectic city life and breathe fresh air. Or it may simply be the excuse to make that family trip postponed several times. And, why not? It can also be the lonely retreat so necessary on some occasions to get out of the rut. Another advantage of fishing is that it is not limited to a geographical area, it is possible to do it in fresh or salt water, which means that we will not have to travel great distances to do it, there can always be a small creek or lake nearby.
There is only one universal requirement for fishing: patience. It is very important if you have decided to practice this activity. Even if you do not have much, it would be an ideal exercise to cultivate patience. It is possible that we do not catch more than a cold as it is popularly said, but this happens even to the professionals. This does not mean that it is not possible to have a good time, alone or with friends and family There are many variables that affect fishing and many can not be controlled. You just have to have some knowledge to get started in this activity.
Right From The Start
We then wondered what he would have to do to fish. Well the first thing would be to locate the place. Depending on this it is determined whether it is fresh, salty water, on the shore, high or from a boat. Apart from this we will only need a good rod, thread or line and bait are enough to get the desired specimen. Even if you do not have access to a fishing rod, a good spool and a few gear (lead, bait and bait) can be useful for the moment.
Let’s start with the fishing rod. Generally freshwater fishing requires equipment of less size than fishing at sea. The advantage of the cane is that it allows to throw the hook as far as possible, thus the fish will notice less the presence of the fisherman and will be more ready to prowl the bait. There are several types of reeds, depending on the level of experience or where you go fishing. They are made of different materials like bamboo, wood, and are now made even of fiberglass, which cheapened and popularized the sport. There are also carbon fibers most commonly used by professionals because of their high cost.
Other names with which we have to familiarize ourselves are “reel” and “line” or “line”. The reel is the object where the line is stored, that is, where the thread that will hold the hook is wound. Just like the fishing rod, the reels have evolved a lot and today can become very sophisticated with mechanisms that help the fisherman to launch the line. Finally, the line, as we said is the thread generally nylon; To choose an ideal one must take into account the thickness of said line since the resistance of this influences in the variety and weight of the specimens that we can or want to fish. This resistance is measured in pounds.
Similarly, there are other implements that are hooks and baits of course. Let’s go little by little to make it simpler. As is known, the hook is the sharp hook where the fish will be inserted. Their shape and size also vary depending on the size of the fish or animal to be captured and the species. The bait is attached to the bait or lure, which can be natural or artificial. Inside the first is the “dead baits” such as worms, worms, dough preparations, small fish, larvae, insects; It can also be “live bait” that would be the same minnows or live worms. There are also artificial lures. There are many types: metal artificial fish, spinner baits, soft baits , spoons , which are simply small objects that mimic the shape of natural baits and have flashy colors for fish.
Finally, it is common to use other implements next to the hook as weights or weights whose function is to take the hook to deeper water. The size of the lead depends on the depth that we want to reach. We also use floats that indicate where our lure is located and also serve to verify if “has chopped” a fish.
In addition, our fishing partners already mentioned, do not forget to wear suitable tops and pants for fishing. Sunscreen or shelter depending on season and weather conditions. It is also recommended to wear sunglasses and hats or hats if it is to be done in the daytime. Recall that it is an activity that requires a lot of time generally in the open.
Already having our basic knowledge of fishing, we can delve a little more in this sport practice. There are different fishing methods. The best known are spinning and casting the main difference between them lies in the type of reel that is used.
The spinning is the most suitable for beginners, the reel uses a fixed coil system that contributes to the launch of the line and prevents entanglement of it. They also have an automatic winding system that contributes to the speed at the time of collection for novice fishermen. This technique is easily mastered. In the spinning reed the hoops of the same go from the largest located at the lower end to the smallest at the top. Usually the cane are divided into two pieces, so they are easier to move.
For its part, casting is the modality practiced by the most experienced. The system is a spinning coil, which allows the line to be thrown at greater distances and with a higher pick up speed. Allows you to control the distance and accuracy of the set with your thumb. Unlike the spinning rods, in casting the hoops have the same size, they are all small. It also has several brake systems: magnetic and centrifugal.
Another important fact to consider is the size of the cane, which generally depends on the height of the person who will use it. They also depend, of course, on the weight of the species to be fished and the type of water.
With this brief introduction, you can already go to have a good time going fishing.Do not forget your gear and the willingness to be in touch with nature and pause in the routine. Patience, you know, indispensable in your implements. Now, good fishing!
