Like many people, you may have a huge passion for fishing, but never ventured off of banks and jetties in your life. If you want a breath of fresh air or are just looking for more challenges in the water, there are various essential bits of kit and tackle you should bring with you. If you’ve been wandering around your local camping store in Perth with no clue as to what you’re looking for, here’s a little guide to get you on the water sooner rather than later.
