Popular Methods of fishing
Angling is a common and extremely popular method of fishing. This is where a baited hook tied to a string is used and this is sunk by attaching a sinker to add the weight. The bait is used to attract the fish and these baits will vary from live creatures (fish, worms) to pieces of plastic (artificial baits) which all serve to attract the fishes. Whilst angling with a road is a famous technique, the other known fishing methods are bank fishing, casting, float tubes, fly fishing, rock fishing and remote controlled fishing where it is done by a remotely controlled boat.
Different fishes are given different ratings on how difficult it is to catch them. In Australia the premier fish would include the barramundi, brown trouts, sail fish and Black Marlins. Black Marlins are considered the prime catch on any fishing expedition in the sea. These fish are so fast, powerful and takes great skill to handle. Great care should be taken in catching some of these fish such as the sail fish and the marlins, as they are extremely agile and fast therefore can cause serious injury to anyone who is not careful.
