TAKE ME FISHING 101: Basic Gear Assembly [Official]


(music)>>THE FISHING DEPARTMENT AT A SPORTING GOODS STORE CAN BE A LITTLE OVERWHELMING. BUT REALLY THERE ARE JUST A FEW BASIC PIECES OF EQUIPMENT YOU NEED TO GET STARTED. COME ON, I’LL SHOW YOU. SO LET’S START WITH THE ROD AND REEL. WE’RE GOING TO USE A VERY BASIC SPINCASTING ROD AND REEL BECAUSE THIS IS THE EASIEST FOR A BEGINNER TO USE. FOR A TWO PIECE ROD, CONNECT THE TWO PIECES AND THEN LINE UP THE LINE GUIDES. YOU CAN EVEN LOOK DOWN TO MAKE SURE THEY’RE IN LINE. THEN, YOU PUNCH THE BUTTON TO RELEASE THE LINE SO THAT YOU CAN THREAD THE LINE THROUGH THE EYES, STARTING WITH THE LOWEST ONE AND GOING ALL THE WAY UP THROUGH THE TOP. NOW YOU’RE READY TO PUT ON YOUR HOOK, BOBBER AND SINKER. I’M GOING TO USE THIS OVERSIZED MODEL FOR DEMONSTRATION PURPOSES AND SHOW YOU HOW TO TIE A PALOMAR KNOT. FIRST, DOUBLE FOUR INCHES OF LINE TO FORM A LOOP AND PASS THE LOOP THROUGH THE EYE OF THE FISHING HOOK. LET THE HOOK DANGLE LOOSE. TIE AN OVERHAND KNOT IN THE DOUBLE LINE. DON’T TWIST OR TIGHTEN THE LINE. PULL THE LOOP FAR ENOUGH TO PASS IT COMPLETELY OVER THE HOOK. WHEN YOU’RE WORKING WITH MONOFILAMENT LINE YOU WANT TO WET THE LINE RIGHT AT THE KNOT BEFORE YOU TIGHTEN IT TO KEEP THE LINE STRONGER. ONCE YOU’VE GOT YOUR KNOT TIED, YOU’RE READY TO ATTACH YOUR BOBBER AND SINKER. WE RECOMMEND USING NON-LEAD, SPLIT SHOT SINKERS LIKE THIS ONE. PLACE THE SINKER ON THE LINE ABOUT SIX INCHES FROM THE HOOK AND SECURE IT WITH PLIERS. TO ATTACH YOUR BOBBER, MASH DOWN THE TOP TAB TO EXPOSE THE BOTTOM HOOK AND HOOK IT TO THE LINE. THEN PUT YOUR THUMB ON THE BOTTOM AND PUSH DOWN THE TOP TAB TO RELEASE THE TOP HOOK AND ATTACH. WHERE TO PLACE YOUR BOBBER DEPENDS ON HOW DEEP YOU WANT YOUR BAIT. THE CLOSER TO THE HOOK IT IS, THE SHALLOWER YOUR BAIT WILL BE. WITH SOME BAIT ON YOUR HOOK, THAT’S ALL THERE IS TO IT! DON’T BE INTIMIDATED BY ALL THE GEAR YOU SEE IN STORES. NOW LET’S GO OUT AND WET A LINE! (music)>>YOU MUST HAVE THE ROD AND THE REEL. THAT CREATES THE UNITY FOR THE MARRIAGE. BUT JUST ONE WITHOUT THE OTHER, YOU’D NEVER BE ABLE TO CATCH THE TROPHY. BUT ONCE YOU HAVE THE ROD AND THE REEL AND LINE YOU STILL HAVE TO PUT A BAIT ON THE END. THAT BAIT IS THE ROMANCE. KEEP ROMANCE ALIVE.

  1. @philly442 lol, well sir about 15 years ago our class went on a fishing field trip. We was just a bunch of 2nd graders and the only kid that caught a fish was a girl by the name of Jenifer. Made us guys look like dopes.

  2. thank you for this..my children and I want to try to do some first time fishing and it's nice to have someone to show us how to do this!

  3. she did not show(on the big model)that the loop that goes over the hook, has to go over the knot in order to execute a proper palomar knot….otherwise good video….

  4. Hooks are sharp. Be very careful. Also, fish can have sharp spines on them. Be very careful. Don't go fishing without adult supervision. You could be serious
