On fisheries you can often meet anglers who are nothing like professionals loaded with equipment. And it’s good that this is happening, because fishing does not have to mean hard sports competition, on the contrary, it can be great entertainment, and its additional advantage is contact with nature.

In order to catch fish with spinning and to do it effectively, you don’t need sophisticated equipment, let alone a large amount of it on the fishery. All you need is a fishing rod and a willingness to fish, but real novices should know what they will need for fishing and why they are going to the store.

Necessary spinning equipment

A rod or a rod for recreational fishing from the shore should be fairly universal, with a cast of 5 to 35 grams and a length of up to 270 centimeters. This does not only apply to specialist fishing, when the angler is focused on a specific fish. In such cases, lighter rods are recommended forperch, heavier rods forcatfish, andlongeraspIt is worth remembering that a good fishing shop provides advisory support in this matter and will also help you choose the right reel for the rod. Example rod: Jaxon Rod Zaffira Spinning – 2.70m / 10-40g



A reel with a fixed spool or a multiplier , but the latter choice is for more experienced anglers. You just have to learn how to use the multiplier efficiently, as handling a reel with a fixed spool is child’s play and just a few minutes of practice. If you have difficulty casting with one hand, it is worth learning from underhand casting, using two hands, which is used by experienced brush anglers.

A line is a line or braid

The thinner the line, the easier it is to handle while fishing. Of course, braided lines are more durable than monofilaments , as they consist not of one line, but of many thinner threads tangled together, but for beginners, monofilament is recommended. Currently, technology has advanced so much that even single lines have very good strength parameters. Sample braid: Braider braid x8 Olive Green 0.18mm 150m 21.40kg Konge


Artificial lures are something that a spinning angler is obliged to do, as it is forbidden to spin using lures other than artificial ones . However, there is no question of this being a limitation. The number of lures that a spinning angler has to choose from is simply huge.

At one time , spoons were the most popular lures in our country, but this was rather due to the limited availability of other lures and, in a way, the need to use spinners. Many of the ones used in fisheries were actually made by themselves in home workshops. An example of a spinner: Dam FZ Standard Blacky EFFZETT No.4/10gr spinner


Spinners were less popular , and even now anglers consider them to limit fishing to just a few fish. The fact is that the most popular pike in our waters is rarely tempted to spin, and zander can be practically forgotten. Both spoons and spinners are reinforced with treble hooks using connecting rings.

Rubber lures once practically unavailable, and now the most popular among those used on fisheries. We distinguish primarily rippers  and twisters , i.e. imitations of small fish and all kinds of other creatures that predatory fish encounter in their environment. These types of lures are usually armed with single hooks, loaded with a lead head, the so-called jigs . Of the currently used and liked by spinning anglers, the most popular are Polish hooves, and their great advantage is the low price.

Wobblers , in turn, are the most expensive of the lures used and are usually made of light balsa wood. They resemble fish in shape and are also painted exactly as the fish looks in reality. They are usually armed with two or three pairs of treble hooks and it depends on the size of the lure. There are wobblers with a lip, thanks to which the desired depth of leading the lure is obtained, and wobblers without a lip. The depth of guiding these is regulated by the spinningist with a stick.

We must store the lures in containers, thanks to which we avoid tangling them and enable free access to them and easy selection. Fishing boxes are the best for this , as they will also hold spare treble hooks, jig heads and steel or tungsten leaders necessary for pike fishing.

Additional spinning equipment

You don’t need much for a walk with a fishing rod, just something in which the angler will be able to carry the lures freely, additionally a water bottle or a raincoat in case of bad weather. It can be a bag, but the most handy will be a fishing backpack , which does not restrict movement even when fishing.

The angler should wear clothing that is comfortable and at the same time provides enough pockets for other necessary items, such as a fishing knife or fishing pliers . The latter are necessary if we want to avoid discomfort when removing the fish bait from the mouth. In the case of pikes, the lack of tongs can result in painful finger injuries.

An example of a fishing knife: Ontario Fishing Knife 9.5cm Blade



A landing net is not recommended , but a gaff may be necessary if the angler intends to catch catfish or may expect one. In addition, we take the fish out of the water by hand and you can get used to it quite easily. It is important not to grab the line when removing the fish, but to pull the fish towards you with the rod. Grasping the line stiffens the connection with the fish, which in the event of a sudden rush of the fish to escape, which happens very often, will cause the line to break.

It is best to wear comfortable shoes on dry ground, and rubber boots on wet ground. When we are going to wade in the water or fish in swampy areas, waders or waders are already necessary .
