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!

Here is my local tackle shop if you want to see what sort of equipment I have to choose from sportfiskepoolen.se –  GriffinEvo Oct 25 '13 at 8:56
Since you aren't having much luck with this question being answered you might try splitting it up into more answerable sections. Such as one question focused on equipment, and then another on technique for starters. You could honestly have one single question just dealing with the rod type and going into more detail with that. As it stands it's just too broad to get sufficient answers. –  manoftheson 2 days ago
