Basic Fishing Methods

Aug 17, 2007
Fishing as we know it is a way of catching aquatic animals for food and for monetary purposes. This process may involve different methods or techniques. These techniques would greatly depend upon the fisherman, his available resources and the situation that he is into. The end though would always justify the means. Listed below are some basic fishing techniques and styles which involve minimal materials and are commonly used around the world with some techniques however done only in some countries in relation with tradition.

Hand fishing

This style involves minimal equipments; obviously, the main equipment here would be the fisherman's hands. Pearl divers catch oysters with their bare hands. Crabs and lobsters are also sometimes caught by hand. In some parts of the British Isles there is this process called trout tickling. This process gets as literal as it sounds. The fisherman tickles the trout's under belly making it go in a mesmerized state making it possible for the fisherman to catch the fish and throw it in dry land or a fish container. Hand line fishing is an old technique which is still common today. This involves a fishing line with weight and hooks attached in the end of the line. The process is simple. The line is pulled up and down underwater to attract the fishes to the lures which are attached to the hooks.

Kite fishing

This technique was said to have been started in China but is now being practiced in some countries like Papua New Guinea, Melbourne, New Zealand and some Pacific islands. The process involves a kite with a line and hooks. The advantage of this style is to keep the fisherman ashore. This may be good for those without boats. Those who have boats sometimes do kite fishing to fish in some parts of the sea where it is dangerous to bring the boat due to massive coral existence or shallow waters. Modern kite fishers use big and synthetic kites hand held or attached in sleds.

Line fishing

This style is the most common fishing practice. This method is also called angling. Lines are attached to hooks with baits. This is common to sport fishing, although other dorms and variations of this style, line fishing still remains to be one of the most effective techniques.

Fishing will always remain as one of the basic forms of hunting. The techniques listed above are limited to the most basic practice of fishing. As simple as it is, each of these techniques never failed to satisfy those who practice it because the guarantee of catching is good. It will all then depend on the time and the area where the fisherman would go.
