While an adventure trip sounds amazing and very tempting, but at times you need to think about the financial situation as well. Very few people understand that it is possible to manage a wonderful fishing trip with very little money. I try to get good bargains on equipment as I have oodles of experience behind me and I know the niche in and out and dreamguides is my favourite, for all the required paraphernalia.
I can suggest some useful tips for the adventure trip, based on my experiences.
Do not buy any expensive tools and fishing lines etc. If it is just one trip, then you can hire the set from a service for a fraction of the price.
Repair the hooks and reuse them. Do not throw away any gear that can be repaired using, glue and pliers or can be retied.
Fishing line is expensive and most of it is wasted and not used. So use a backing for the part that is not used and buy less line for the main part of fishing.
Reverse the line and braided part. Use the new part and worn part alternatively so that it lasts longer.
Use and buy only what you really need. You do not need to have all the lines, hooks and bobbers in all the colors. Stick to the basics really essential for the kind of fishing that you are going to indulge in.
Buy sinkers in cheaper variety wherever tungsten is not needed.
Stay closer to your home and save money on long drives. Similarly, you can go to places where the license is cheaper and you do not need an expensive campsite for that fishing adventure.
Another important tip is to reuse the plastics. In addition, just buy new hooks to make the old baits functional again.
With some experience, you will learn to use these tricks and then it will be more pleasure going on fishing expeditions when you can have more fun without spending a fortune.
