You’ve visited one of our free Let’s Fish! events and now you want your own kit. Here’s what to ask for from your local fishing tackle shop. Be warned, some small shops may try to sell you equipment that's unsuitable for canal fishing.
To have the best chance of catching some fish, you'll need a few basic items of equipment. The list below has been put together by our professional, experienced Let's Fish! coaches to get you up and fishing in no time.
If you can’t find suitable rigs in your local store, come along to another Let’s Fish! event and ask one of our coaches for advice on how to make up your own rigs and tie your own hooks. Many Let’s Fish! clubs also run classroom sessions where you can learn these skills.
