                                                          Fishing Tips For Beginners
                                                                 By Garvin Douglas

   If you are new to fishing you might be overwhelmed by the amount of information you are presented
with. There are numerous sources of fishing information from books, shops, friends and family, the
Internet and many others. Don't be intimidated by it all. Instead, focus initially on a few simple tips to
help make your first fishing trip a success.

1. Fishing with bait.

 To get the bait to the fish you will need to use a weight. The weight you need will depend on where
you are fishing. A bank sinker and a number 2 hook should be ok to begin with.

 Using a swivel will prevent the sinker from sliding. If you want to protect the knot use a lightweight
bead positioned between the weight and swivel.

 Bait - the most popular and easy to obtain type of bait is worms. Some fishermen also like to use livers
or chicken in particular. You must make sure your bait is cold so it does not fall off the hook. However,
you should experiment with different types of bait and see what produces the best results.

2. Where to Find Fishing Bait

 Bait sources for a successful fishing trip are plentiful. Many people like to catch their bait themselves
since then they know where it came from and are familiar with its freshness. Or, if you favor
convenience, you can simply purchase your bait at a fishing shop.

 There are, of course, pros and cons to buying or catching your bait. If you buy it you will have exactly
what you want, but can sometimes pay an inflated price depending where you shop. On the other
hand, catching your own bait is free, so you save money.

 However, you may spend a lengthy day gathering the amount of bait you need, so it can be very
time-consuming. One great bait for fishing is earthworms, and they can easily be obtained for free.

3. The 3 basic methods to fish.

Drift-fishing. This, as the name suggests, allows the line to drift in the current that you have cast into.

You can do this up or down stream.

 Plunking. This method uses weights to keep the bait in place after you have cast out. If you would like
to use the current to assist you slightly, just use a lighter weight.

 Back-bouncing. This method relies on you lifting your rod up 1 or 2 feet and letting the lure settle back
down again. While you are doing this, reel your line in slightly allowing it to stay taught.

 4. Fishing from a boat. First you need to decide in what location you will be fishing. This allows you
choose the weight of your jigheads.

 Using a heavy weight and keeping your line straight, you will be able to drift with the current. Slow
trolling with a bottom walker is good when boat fishing.

 If you follow these quick tips you will be enjoying your first fishing trip with minimal problems. In fact,
take a friend or family member with you to share your enjoyment. Just be cautious and carry safety
equipment and a first aid kit with you at all times in case of an emergency. It is also a very good idea to
take a cell phone along with you.

Fly fishing is a unique activity to be practiced while in a kayak and is not favoured by many kayakers.
Fly fishing from a kayak is not very easy and requires great control and experience. However, once
paddlers can master this art, fly fishing from a kayak can be a very exciting and equally fun filled

Fly Fishing Using a Kayak

 Usually the amateur kayakers do not indulge in fly fishing from a kayak because they do not have the
skill to balance the kayak while fishing. Kayaks are mainly used for fly fishing only on such lakes and
ponds where no other watercraft can be used. Kayaks are very comfortable, fast, can save a lot of
energy and allow exploring remote fishing areas.

 Yet another advantage of fly fishing from a kayak is it does not make any noise. In the absence of any
noisy propeller or flippers, paddlers can silently approach the fish and get a good catch. The greatest
advantage of a kayak for fly fishing is that paddlers can reach those areas where no other fisherman
can venture.

Kayaks for Fly Fishing

 Often, many fly fishing enthusiasts keen on using a kayak are perplexed about the most efficient type
of kayak for fly fishing. The most preferred kayak for fly fishing is a flatwater kayak that is as short as
possible. A kayak about 9 feet in length is a great kayak that can provide a great kayaking as well as a
fly fishing experience.

 A smaller kayak is easier to control and balance while fly fishing. Kayakers must bear in mind that
smaller flatwater kayaks have limited tracking capabilities and do not go very fast as well. However,
they are perfect for those who do not plan to venture very far (beyond 3 miles). These kayaks are easy
to maneuver as compared to larger flatwater kayaks, which is a key factor in fly fishing.

 Fly fishing kayaks must be great at maneuverability at a reasonable speed so that kayakers can
explore the most secluded weeds, shallow waterways, bulrushes and tules.

 The fishing fraternity is divided over the topic of using a sit-in or sit on top kayaks for fly fishing.
Traditionally, paddlers interested in fly fishing used the usual sit-in kayaks only. However, off late many
use the new sit on top kayaks as they provide greater stability and are closer to the water surface.
Many paddlers also like to use special angler kayaks that are equipped with fishing accessories for fly
