Ahead of the inaugural All Girls Fishing Competition at Fishing Paradise @ ORTO, here are some handy tips for the participants angling for the first time.

  1. Keep your fingernails short and neat. Long ones tend to trap dirt, and are very difficult to clean.
  2. Wear cooling clothing and bring accessories to help with the weather. Cotton is lightweight and comfortable.
  3. Grass and mud get slippery when wet, so avoid slippers and other footwear with little grip.
  4. If it is too hot and you do not expect a shaded area to fish, bring a sun hat and sunglasses.
  5. If you intend to spend significant time in the sun, have a bottle of sunscreen handy, as it needs to be reapplied every two to three hours.
If you look hard enough, you can find gear that matches your favourite clothes.
  1. Keep a big bottle of tap water and a roll of toilet paper in your fishing bag so you can clean up whenever and wherever you feel like it.
  2. Before fishing, tie your hooks to your leader lines at home. It can take time for beginners to get the hang of it.
  3. If you did not have time to get a tackle box, an old photo album can also be used to hold your pre-tied rigs.
  4. Many seasoned anglers use their bare hands, but I suggest a pair of pliers to remove hooks from your catch. They are also useful for debarbing your hooks.
  5. Recycle plastic bags from the supermarket and throw your trash into a makeshift bin. Not only does this ensure a clean and neat space, it keeps the nasty pests away!
