Making and then catching fish on your own bait will bring more to your fishing experience than any expensive kit could ever do.
For me its the second most important thing.
The sense of achievement and satisfaction you will get when you catch fish on it will far outweigh the effort required.
Not only will you save a load of money but you will also have a big edge over the fish and other anglers!
