As autumn starts to move towards winter, the fishing season is slowing down and you might be feeling less inclined to head out on an angling adventure! As you look back on some magical times by the water in 2018, you probably wouldn’t be blamed for getting excited about 2019 and the thought of what’s to come! A new year and the start of the fishing season often means a lot of new equipment and some exciting trends! At The Insurance Emporium, we like to keep on top of the latest developments! Check out our predicted angling trends for 2019!
To those who don’t fish, the smell of fishing bait might just turn your stomach! As seasoned anglers may already know, attracting certain fish to have a nibble on your bait can mean that you need to make it more tempting and even smellier! Using a coating on your bait or boilies is becoming more popular and seems to be continuing into 2019. New products are be arriving all the time, such as Stinky Stuff, a relatively new start-up who offer spray-on fishing bait additives! One man’s stink is another fish’s supper!
Get lured in!
Lures seem to be constantly changing and evolving, with new technology and trends dictating what people are choosing to use as part of their tackle. When it comes to saltwater hard lures, stickbaits are expected to continue their popularity with hard-plastic lures being top of the pile for saltwater fishing. On top of this, inline single hooks seem to be increasing in popularity in place of trebles. These types of hooks are said to keep fish hooked more effectively and make it easier for the angler to unhook!
Reel-ly personalised gear!
A trend that first started in Japan now seems to be spreading across the world, meaning that personalised fishing gear could be the way to go in 2019! Reels are the most commonly customised piece of kit, with the ability to change them for increased performance or simply for aesthetic value. Whether you replace the spools for a skeletonised version or add colour-accented knobs and handles, there are plenty of options available for anglers to hit the water both looking good and performing well!
For those who don’t fancy slipping on their waders and standing in the great outdoors, there are various fishing simulator games being released to the market that could make having a realistic fishing experience from the comfort of your sofa a possibility! Ultimate Fishing Simulator by PlayWay is released in 2019 and has been painstakingly made to offer the opportunity to catch dozens of species of fish in real locations all over the world… all from the warmth of your own home!
