There have been many kinds of fishing gear since ancient times. Most of the fishing gears in ancient times were made of animal bones or stones. Most of modern fishing gear is made of new materials and equipment, which can be divided into 4 types.


Net fishing gear, the aquatic products caught by net fishing gear in the world account for more than 80% of the total fish catch. Net fishing gear is composed of nets, ropes, floats (such as floating barrels, floating bodies, floating balls, etc.), sinkers, etc. According to different fishing objects and operation methods, fishing gear is divided into 9 categories such as gill nets, seine nets, trawl nets, stretch nets, large pull nets, laying nets, copying nets, masking nets, and traps.


Fishing gear usually consists of hooks, bait, fishing line, etc., and some are also equipped with floats, sinkers, fishing rods or other accessories. The hook is the part that is tied to the fishing line and acts as a hook. There are two types of inverted tooth structure and non-inverted tooth structure. The choice of bait is often the key to the success or failure of the harvest, and it can be divided into two types: real bait and artificial bait.



The thorns are fishing gears with properties such as raking and stinging. The former is a rake with sharp claws, which digs and captures the fishing objects that are submerged in the sandy bottom; the latter includes fish darts, gun saws, long-handled hooks and other projectiles and empty hooks, which are aimed at the captured objects during operation. Captured by entering the body, or using empty hooks and spikes.


Cage pots use the habit of some fishing objects to like to drill holes, and set up cages, pots, conch shells, etc. Such as eel cages, shrimp cages, conch cages, etc.


In addition to these four types, there is also an important material for making fishing gear. Nowadays, many materials for making fishing gear are made of fiber materials, which need to have corresponding functions. Compression resistance, softness, etc. are all factors that need to be considered.
