Preparation for Wild Fishing

Wild fishing is literally fishing in wild places, almost untouched and completely immersed in nature. With the wild fishing, you will visit unexplored places and preserved by the most uncontaminated nature. It is, therefore, necessary to observe the few and simple rules to live the activity in the best possible way, safely and in full respect of the environment.

Are you a fisherman and do you already have your equipment? Read on and make sure you don’t miss anything!

EQUIPMENT FOR WILD FISHING

First of all, it is advisable to know the correct equipment to use for this activity. The wild fishing can be practiced with spinning fishing or fly fishing and each type has its specific tools. In particular, the equipment used is the following:

  • the 7 foot fly rod with tail 4 or tail 5 or spinning;
  • the reel for the 2000 or 3000 spinning;
  • wire ranging from 0.16 to 0.25;
  • rigid or silicone artificial baits and types of fly based on the season and environment in which you find yourself.

Then there are other fundamental tools that you need to bring to practice wild fishing safely:

  • the topographic map (fundamental for orientation in wild places);
  • the first aid kit;
  • a knife;
  • a water bottle;
  • something to eat;
  • a rain jacket (even if it’s sunny);
  • polarized glasses to see better in the water and also for safety reasons in case the bait is released from the wire;
  • bait with a single hook without barbs, so as not to hurt the fish and to protect the hands and arms;
  • a headlamp, especially if you are fishing at sunset and returning in the dark;
  • mountain equipment and clothing;
  • waders with a narrow belt.

Facing the activity with an expert guide, you will have fewer thoughts and will be able to receive all the indications on the environment and the territory that you will go through, on the techniques to use and on the specific baits.

HOW A WILD FISHING EXIT IS TAKEN

We will explain to you in brief how a wild fishing outing takes place without giving too much away so as not to spoil the surprise and leave you the excitement of discovering the activity step by step, launch after launch.

The activity begins with an excursion to reach the desired place to start the wild fishing. First of all dress and start to go up the fishing area, observing the environment and choosing the hole to start and the bait to try. Depending on the clarity or opacity of the water, the color of the lure is also chosen and usually the best results are obtained with baits that simulate small fish or insects typical of the environment in which they are found.

It should also be remembered that with fly fishing, fish attack by hunger, with spinning fishing, for defense. So we start with some baits and see what stimulates the attack to find the ideal bait.

During an outing you will then learn to identify the areas of the stream where there are certain fish based on the season, for example the trout marbled in water deaths and or the brown trout under the falls and therefore it is necessary to analyze all this before starting to launch the baits. 

BEHAVIORS TO OBSERVE

The important thing is to try to blend in with the natural environment and not create too many vibrations. One must always adapt to the environment in which one finds oneself, for example if one finds oneself in anthropic and small environments, one launches the bait from afar hidden behind some natural element, like a rock. In summary, a fisherman must create as little disturbance as possible to the surrounding environment and merge with it.

An expert guide will teach you all these simple and important rules to live an experience immersed in the wildest nature and in complete respect for the flora and fauna of the environment.
