I'm planning on getting out to try some Pike fishing in Sweden this autumn. Never tried it before so I could do with a few basic pointers on equipment, suggestions for the following:
a) Rod type, length, action, and power.
b) Bait/lure, hook size
c) Reel type
d) Line type and strength
e) Specialized equipment (I've seen some stuff about a metal leader) & rigging - A rigging diagram would be great!
f) Tips on techniques...
A lot to cover there, would appreciate any advice really including answers for small parts of the post!
