Fishing can be a great way to unwind in nature and build confidence at the same time. Relax by the water and then, when you feel a bite, reel in the catch for an unbeatable sense of achievement – not to mention an upper body workout!
There are loads of benefits to fishing, including the opportunity to make friends with like-minded folk, top up your Vitamin D levels by spending time outside, and even reduce your blood pressure.
Like most hobbies, though, you need to have the right kit to get maximum enjoyment – fishing rod and reel, lines, weights, hooks, bobbers and lures, and whatever else you need for a day at the water’s edge.
Don’t let the financial investment put you off, though. DivideBuy works with a range of retailers who supply interest free fishing tackle on finance, so you can spread the cost of casting off.
An easier way to finance fly fishing

Surrender to the pull of lure fishing
If you prefer something a bit weightier to pull in the pike, pollock or maybe even a mackerel, have a look at lure fishing. Also known as spin fishing, lure fishing typically uses heavier lures, sometimes imitating fish, to attract a bite.
For successful lure fishing, you’ll need a rod, reel, line and a monofilament of fluorocarbon leader – plus the lures, of course.
There are all kinds of lures to choose from, including soft plastic baits that look like lizards or frogs, spoons – so named because they’re curved and made from metal – and spinnerbaits, which vibrate and trick the fish into thinking they are a tasty morsel.
Then there are jigs, which are handy for targeting bottom-feeding fish, like plaice, because they sink well, and plugs – also known as crankbaits – which can be colourful and shaped like different kinds of bait. Or if you’re after the elusive carp, Future Carping might have the secret weapon you need to land a whopper.
Browse what’s on offer from our partner fishing tackle shops and pick out the perfect lures to level up your fishing skills.
