What is Angling?
For those who don’t know what Angling is, it is pretty simple! Angling is the method of fishing that uses a fish hook. The hook is attached to a fishing line and the line is then attached to the rod. Our modern fishing gear is also fitted with a fishing reel that stores and retrieves the line. Once you have that basic setup, going fishing in Saskatchewan will be so much easier. You will then need bait, a lure a bite indicator, some weights and maybe even a sinker but don’t worry about it, we have everything you need right here at Pokey's Tackle Shop.
Who is Using Angling Fishing?
Angling fishing is the main way of fishing for sport fishing but it’s also used in some commercial fishing operations. Catch and release fishing is being practiced more and more by sports fishermen. The species of fish pursued by anglers vary with geography, in Saskatchewan people usually fish for those species: bass, pike, walleye, muskellunge, yellow perch, and trout.
