Fishing is a very common hobby for people around the globe, although it is a means of living for most of the people and the only source of income.  Seafood is unique cuisine in East Asia, South Korea, Japan, China, USA and Iceland that are the primary consumers of seafood. There are large fishing bets around the water lines from, where daily tons of fish are caught to send to the market.

But fishing is also an enjoyable hobby. People go fishing whenever they find the time or during vacations. Few pick up this hobby as a family tradition that keeps on going from generation to generation while other has this as occasional interest. For those who have been on fishing with the family since childhood, they almost learn everything they need to know about fishing while growing up while others who are relatively new or just thought to go on fishing for the first time they research a lot for all the things that they should know about fishing.


Here is a short list of stuff that you must have ready with you for your first fishing experience:

1-    Fishing equipment

3-    Food for fish

To catch the fish to the hook, you need fish food to attach to the hook so that when the fish comes to eat it gets caught. You can buy such food from local stores in your city.

4-    Life-saving equipment
