There is something very special about the sport of angling. It can be both relaxing and exhilarating and you can travel into some beautiful parts of the country to participate. Whether you are a serious angler, or just relish the occasional fishing trip, there is plenty of enjoyment to be had.
According to a Study of Freshwater Angling in England, this enjoyment is also important to the economy with anglers contributing £1.4 billion annually as a result of their spending. On average, each angler spends around £400 on equipment like rods, keep nets, and plastic buckets for fishing.
The same report also recognised that coarse fishing was the most popular form of angling in the country. We may be approaching the close season for coarse fishing in the UK, but if you are an enthusiast there is still plenty of fishing-related activity to keep you busy. This includes preparing your kit for when the season starts again, in June. When you are doing this, remember to add plastic fishing buckets to your list of essential items.
You may not realise just how useful a plastic bucket can be when you are heading out to the riverbank, or even just your local park. Look at these ways to use a plastic bucket when you are fishing, for inspiration.
You can see the benefits of using buckets for bait and other purposes but you may be worried about fish being deterred by brightly coloured buckets on the bank. After all, every angler knows that fish can be easily spooked. This usually happens due to movement and colour rather than sound as sounds like talking do not travel very well under the water.
This is why the fishing and bait buckets at H&O Plastics come in naturally camouflaged colours. They are available in black and different shades of green. This means that you can happily use the buckets on the riverbank without disturbing the fish in your swim.
During the close season for coarse fishing, take a look at some plastic buckets. As you can see, they have a multitude of uses, so they make an excellent addition to your kit.
