Whether you are a deep sea fisherman or a river specialist, matters not. You are taking part in one of the most noble of all enterprises. What with modern technologies and all, it is still a requirement and preferred practice of all professed fishing professionals and hobbyists to reel them in by hand. But somewhere along the line, the tide caught up with them. All over the globe, fishing regulations have become even more draconian.
This seems to be quite unfair for one reason alone. While small-scale fishermen, adhering to a cultural tradition that has (so far) stood the test of time and needing to fish to put food on the table, are being severely punished, the deep sea trawlers owned by those giant multinationals, continue to plow the oceans of its scarce resources, unchecked. Surely, the time has come to reverse this unfair state of affairs.
The world, and its oceanic and inland stocks would be a better place for it. Aquaculture has been recognized as a strong sustainable force for good. But for the old fisherman who continues to allow the waters to lick his ankles, this still seems to be going against the natural relationship between man and his catch. Relax. Wherever you are, you are still allowed to go fishing. In order to make your small enterprise a successful one, revitalize your fishing appurtenances with a custom fishing rod.
And everything else that goes into your toolkit needs to be customized as well. There are two good reasons for customizing your fishing toolkit. The equipment suits your style of fishing. It also suits the type of catch you are trying to reel in. A good idea, given that you are now so hamstrung with all those restrictions.
