Tools Of The Trade – Terminal Tackle

Share this Post:

One of the least glamorous yet most important facets of fishing equipment is terminal tackle. This is gear that’s attached to the end of a fishing line including hooks, sinkers, leaders, snaps, swivels, split rings, clevises, and the list goes on.

For the most part, this area of tackle is the least expensive. However, an angler still needs to be wary of “cheaping out” just to save a few cents. Landing the trophy of a lifetime with your high-end rod and reel spooled with top-quality line and a $25 bait is in dire straits if that flimsy snap breaks!

Having a big box full of terminal tackle is highly unnecessary; however, having a good supply of the essentials (like hooks, sinkers, snaps, swivels and split rings in a few sizes) will save your fishing day more often than not.

Terminal tackle is—and always will be—a vital component of fishing gear.
