Freshwater Fishing Reels

May 9, 2008
Bass Fishing is becoming just as popular as a day out at the zoo or a picnic in the local park. Family day outings are now involving bass fishing. At this present moment in time Bass fishing is supposedly to be the number one freshwater sport in the USA and anyone who participates in this very self fulfilling sport will proudly tell you why. Approximate figures show that the bass fishing industry is between 65 to 70% higher than most other forms of fresh water fishing.

Bass fishing is a freshwater sport that naturally appeals to a lot of outdoorsmen. It's a relaxing way to spend the day outside, enjoying the scenery. And once you snag a fish, the activity becomes very rewarding. Some bass fishing enthusiasts decide to go pro and compete at the pro level. Bass fishing tournaments are the place to put your angling and fishing skills to the test, against the best of the best.

So, how would an avid bass fisher explain this growing popularity? Most bass fishers love the great outdoors, and think there's no better way to relax than enjoying an outdoor activity such as bass fishing. And once the first start biting, the activity gets more exciting. There's a great feeling of reward when you actually catch something, too. Some amateur bass fishers take their love of the sport - and their talent - to the professional level where they compete in tournaments designed to showcase their fishing skills.

The action of a fishing rod is the behavior of the rod while being cast by an individual. The action of the rod may be the same for all the people who cast with it and it may be different for every person who casts with it. Very few casters cast exactly alike. Their hand, arm, muscular and nervous systems are never exactly alike and they consequently perform a cast with a rod differently than any other hand and arm, etc.

The action of most rods will react substantially the same for all casters, however. When a rod does not react the same for one caster as another, the action of the rod for each caster is different. That is, a rod may be called a stiff action by one caster and a medium stiff action by another, and both are correct. The action of a rod, then, depends directly on the particular caster using it and may vary from caster to caster.

There's absolutely nothing worse than to have a fish on the hook and have the line snap! Well, no more snapping of fishing line with the latest development in monofilament fishing lines. Monofilament fishing lines come in a wide range of colors, sizes, thickness and strength. Although it's stronger than some of the other more conventional fishing lines, they are cheaper.

What makes monofilament fishing lines so much better? For starters, they hold knots quite well and give off a transparent appearance in the water. They have a unique coating that keeps the fishing line from snapping - and taking your fish with it. While monofilament fishing lines are strong and inexpensive, they don't stretch as well as other types of fishing lines.

Another great advancement in the world of fishing is a device that can locate a school of fish nearby. Just picture yourself out on the lake, trying to catch some fish, and you turn on the toy you got online. Wait for a few beeps and then the device tells you that just 500 yards from your current location is a big school of fish. This device is like a high-tech scanning machine that surveys the entire body of water to find a school of fish, just waiting to be caught!
