You never want to on a hunting excursion or any kind of fishing trip without the proper gear. That’s a common mistake that a lot of beginners make and some intermediates too, I’m sad to say. Now here’s a comprehensive list of things that you need to pack in order to make your hunting excursion much more efficient and hassle free. After all a lot of us are just fishing for fun and how can you have fun when you’re sitting there suffering from your mistakes or are making your life harder by not having the right gear? Without further ado, here’s what you need:
- Fishing rod. I know I shouldn’t be saying this but you can get so caught up in your trip that you might forget the most important thing to bring. A fishing rod is an important tool to bring as it allows you to catch the fish the proper way. I suppose you can go and start spear fishing, which is also very interesting and a brand
novel experience that you and your family can enjoy as you go back to your roots. But most likely you’re here to find some nice fishes and for that you’re going to need to bring a fishing rod with you as otherwise you won’t really catch anything, if much at all.
- Umbrella. An umbrella is a highly versatile tool. If you went out on a fishing trip and sat there for hours on end, you’d most likely get a sunburn unless you bring a sunscreen out. But more on that in the next point, for now let’s focus on umbrellas. Umbrellas are also very good at keeping the winds at bay in case it gets windy. You can easily just simply tilt it to prevent a gush of wind disturbing your peace.
Another benefit of umbrellas is that they also offer protection against rain and drizzle. If you go out on your trip and are trying to not get wet, I’d highly recommend that you invest in an umbrella. You can get those beach umbrellas as they tend to do a fairly good job against the sunshine and the rain. Even if it is hailing, these umbrellas can potentially shield you , although I do find it odd to carry a beach umbrella into an icy lake or something, you’re much better off just bringing warmer clothes with yourself.
- Sunscreen. If you’re out fishing, you’re likely just sitting there not moving much for hours on end. And how can you do that and expect to not get nasty sunburn at the end of the day? This I s where sunscreens come in. The sunscreen is highly beneficial to your health and tries to aim with one that has SPF of 50. A fun fact is that any sunscreen that are over SPF 50 work pretty much identically as the ones who are SPF 50 as that’s the highest benefit that a single sunscreen can give you.
That concludes this post about the gear that you have to pack. I plan on writing a part 2 to this as there is truly quite a lot of gear that you can pack with you on a fishing trip or a hunting trip and I wouldn’t want to make you miss anything that is important. I’ll probably get the article up sometime next week. That’s all for today folks, and I hope you all beautiful people have a fantastic and glories day!
