Fishing gear for Camping and RVing

Fishing is commonly referred to as angling and of an "angle" (fish hook). The hook is usually attached to a fishing line and the line is often attached to a fishing rod. Fishing rods are usually fitted with a fishing reel that functions as a mechanism for storing, retrieving and paying out the line. The hook itself can be dressed with lures or bait.

Fishing equipment comes in many types and sizes. While Camping or RVing you are limited on space and thus require fishing equipment that is compact in size but has the quality and performance of non-compact gear. Below we have listed details about the (4) primary types of fishing (Bait Casting, Spin Casting, Fly Fishing and Spinning) along with you your chance to review and price gear in each category..
BAIT CASTING FISHING
DETAILS:
Bait casting and spin casting differ essentially in the type of reel, the rod length, and the strength of the line used. Bait casting usually employs a reel with heavier line, often in the 10- to 20-pound (4,500- to 9,000-gram) test range. Bait casting is the most popular equipment used in Bass Fishing.

FLY FISHING

SPIN CASTING FISHING

SPINNING FISHING
DETAILS:
Spinning fishing uses what is called an open faced reel along with a rod containing extra large eyelets. The line is released from the reel by flipping a bail open and than casting the rod. For line retrieval the bail is flipped back closed and holds the line while the handle rotates the line back onto the reels spool.
