Frequently Asked Questions

What fishing tools does TackleWest stock?

While your fishing rods, reels, and lures are important to the success you have out on the water, another thing that should be considered is the kind of tools you're armed with. While it's hard to have a bad time fishing, it's hard to fish without having the right tools.

Whether you prefer a catch-and-release style or to catch and prepare your fish, we offer a range of brag mats and scales for every kind of angler. We have knives and fighting belts for those tougher fights, and lip grips, gaffs, and nets to assist you safely and efficiently in hooking and catching that fish. Whether you brag to your mates about your catch or bring it home for dinner, don't get caught without the right tool for the job.

We also have a range of tackle and tools to help prepare your gear. With pliers, knot-tying tools, line cutters, crimping tools, sharpeners, sinker moulds, headlamps, and other tool accessories, we provide a wide range of essential fishing gear to help you set your tackle up for success.

What are some essential fishing tools?

  • Pliers: One of the most basic fishing tools every angler should carry. Whether you fish from shore, rocks, or boats, they are useful for cutting lines, removing hooks from fish, and in emergencies. Line cutters and knives can also be used in similar situations.

  • Nets: A good landing net makes the task of retrieving much easier. They allow you to reach the fish safely and without having to compromise on your catch. Lip grips and gaffs could also be used in similar situations.

  • Scales: You never know when you might catch your personal best. Having a small digital scale on hand is useful to verify the size of your catch.

  • Headlamps: These are for eager fishos who stay out late into the night or are up before the sun. Adjustable lumen brightness and long-lasting battery life are the most useful features.

Which fishing tools do I need?

The answer depends on your fishing style and technique. There are many different kinds of tools you can use to make your fishing experience an easier one. For example, headlamps are ideal for anglers who prefer night fishing, lip grips are great for those who prefer to catch and release or need a stronger grip when reeling one in. Nets can be used in a variety of ways, from catch and release to scooping up one on a boat. Pliers are useful for necessary tackle maintenance and quick fixes.
