This is a universal method of fishing with several maneuvers and adaptations respective to the regions and topography.

Angling: This is a classic way of fishing with the help of a rod, which has a hook or an angle attached to it, with a sinker to help it remain underwater.

Angling can again be categorized into line fishing or rod angling. Other common ways that are classified into angling are droplining, jigging, longlining, trolling, handlining, casting, fly fishing, kayak fishing, kite fishing and banking.

Netting: It is the most common form of commercial or subsistence fishing with the help of nets. In this huge nets are either dropped and lifted, or strewn from a cliff, or taken to mid sea with the help of boats etc. Any method involving a net to bait fish is known as netting and the varieties are Chinese fishing, cast net, ghost net, drift net etc. The turnout of this technique is usually in huge quantities for selling purposes.
