My all-time favorite fishing equipment

Whenever you have some spare time and you need to get away from the crowd, you should relax and catch up with your old pals on a small fishing trip. I get this feeling from time to time so I always make sure my fishing gear is ready for a journey.

The majority of the people I know have a hard time learning which piece of equipment matters most and what is crucial to pack with you when going fishing. After years of learning everything there is to know about this wonderful outdoor hobby, I’ve managed to create a little must-have list that compiles my all-time favorite fishing gear that I use during each fishing session.

Besides my favorite rod that I never ever leave my house without, I like to put an extra line in my fishing tackle box. Sometimes the fishing line breaks or gets tangled so it’s a great idea to have a spare one with the rest of your tools. Since the line depends a lot on the area you’re fishing and the kind of fishing you’re hoping to catch, you need to make sure that you get an adequate one. For example, you must get a durable and heavier fishing line if you plan on fishing in a rough environment because it can reduce the chances to snap. On the other hand, if you’re only going for a quick fishing trip in crystal clear lakes, a thin, clean line will do.

No matter what kind of fishing you’re into, don’t forget to stock your fishing box with all sorts of hooks. I usually like to have a traditional J-hook but I believe you can add the french hook as well. Nevertheless, no matter what type of hook you decide to carry, get a bunch of them in different sizes.

 

 

Let’s move on to bobbers or floaters, as many anglers called them. These are the ones responsible for alerting you when the fish grabs the bait. Basically, the bobber will sink when the fish bites so you’ll know the when to reel in the catch. Depending on your personal needs and preferences, you can choose between white plastic and round red bobbers. Fishing enthusiasts tend to prefer round bobbers because they can be easily clipped to the line. However, they can impose a limit on how deep you cast the line.

Because putting only a hook and a worm alone makes the rod sink too fast and too deep, you’ll most certainly need to attach some sort of weight that compensates. These are called sinkers and are typically made of lead. Before using them, check whether there are laws that prevent them due to environmental issues.

 

 

Finding your way through Canada

 

Canada is a great holiday destination that has so much to offer for everyone looking to get in touch with an interesting culture that combines rural landscapes with cosmopolitan cities. Considered by numerous studies and reports as one of the most livable countries in the world, Canada won’t disappoint you no matter what activities you’re interested in.

If you’re not the outdoor type, you should know that Canada is not all about natural landscapes and camping trips. This beautiful country is filled with modern and multicultural cities known for their unique personality. Destinations such as Toronto, Vancouver or Montreal are known all around the Globe. However, there are several other cities that are worth to consider.

 

 

For example, some places are famous for their marine culture while others boast fantastic mountainous landscapes or their French heritage. Because Canadian cities are a tad smaller compared to those in the USA, you can take your RV GPS and take full advantage of what this country has to offer.

The first thing tourists notice when they arrive in Canada is that people are friendly and like to communicate, while crimes are relatively low.

If you decide to see Vancouver, this is one of the hot spots in Canada thanks to the number of people that want to live here. This city is surrounded by water and has a cool mountain range that you can admire. Apart from this, the winters here are extremely moderate and don’t include so much snow. This is extremely important because Canada is known for its harsh winters.

 

Another destination that you might find appealing is Calgary in Alberta. Known for the Calgary Stampede which is an annual rodeo event that attracts many people every July, this city is your path to the Rocky Mountains.

I don’t think there’s a person left in this world that hasn’t heard about Niagara Falls. Even though it can get a little crowded, you must see the beauty of this powerful waterfall so make sure you put a mark on your itinerary.

 

 

The biggest city in Canada is Ontario. Mistakenly considered the capital of Canada, the city is, in fact, a unique mix of all sorts of cultures such as English, Chinese, Irish, Scottish, Italian, and East Indian. If you want to enjoy the best food as well as venues and museums, you must visit Ontario while finding your way through Canada.

In addition to this wide array of large cities, Canada boasts a large number of natural wonders. Because the country has a big coastline, you can take the RV and visit everything you’ve always dreamed to see starting with the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks, the Dinosaur Provincial Park and ending with the Nahanni National Park Reserve.
