No one wants to miss out on a big catch due to a broken fishing guide. Don't forget about tip guides - these smaller guides are important to ensuring the success of your fishing trip, and they're also prone to accidents due to their tip-of-the-rod placement. Because of this, you'll want to keep extras on hand.
When you arrive at a fishing spot, all of your focus is on hitting the water and hooking your prize. Adding rod hook keepers to your assortment of rod and reel care items helps protect rods and shield hooks from damage during transport or storage, so all of your equipment is ready for use the moment you need it. Rod hook keepers also help prevent tangled fishing line, minimizing time spent on the shore dealing with snags and knots to help you cast out more quickly.
Accidents happen, and no matter how carefully fishing equipment is treated, it may need eventual repairs. Choosing fishing rod repair kits means that everything needed for common repairs, such as replacing the tip, is collected in one easy-to-use pack. You may also want to stock up on hot melt glue to have a ready supply available, and don't forget about wrapping thread for securely adding guides.
