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!
