Q: I’ve just started LRF. What would you take with you for a day’s LRF?

AK & DS say: The less kit the bet­ter, we would say. Keep light and mo­bile for the most en­joy­ment.

Aside from a rod and reel, es­sen­tials in­clude a shoul­der bag con­tain­ing small amounts of tackle. Jig­heads, small hooks, drop­shot weights and large split shot cover at least three dif­fer­ent rigs.

Lure choice is up to you. Part of the fun is work­ing through dif­fer­ent lures. A range of colours can help if you don’t know what the water clar­ity is like at your cho­sen mark.

A spool of fluoro­car­bon leader is es­sen­tial if you use braid main­line. Add snips for cut­ting line and a small set of for­ceps or pliers for un­hook­ing. Po­larised sun­glasses and a land­ing net can both prove use­ful.
