Fishing Tips for Beginners

Fishing is an easy sport to pick up; we can get you started with just a few tips You'll need a rod and reel with the right rigging

When you tie on your hook or lure, use a knot that won't come loose on the first tug Thread your line through the eye of the hook or lure about six inches and fold it back on itself Holding both pieces of line, rotate the hook ten half turns until the line is twisted Insert the end of the line between the hook and the first twist, making a loop Bring it back through that loop, and pull on both pieces of line; that will tighten the knot and snug it up against the eye

Trim the end leaving about a quarter inch Don't just bite it off; it's really hard on your teeth I'm using a weight and bobber and a nice, juicy worm; this is good for bluegill, catfish, carp, crappie, and trout If you thread the worm onto the hook it's less likely to be picked off by the smaller fish
