This section of the site contains Basic Guides and
the different methods used by anglers in the pursuit of catching
The following articles are not intended to provide
expert advice but are simple guides for anglers, or those beginning
to take up fishing with little or no experience at all, about how to
get started with the different methods of angling and how to and
when to use them.
Basic Fishing Guides do not go into every aspect of the different
fishing methods (to do this I would need to write a few books on the
subjects) but hopefully they will give enough information for you to
grasp the principles behind the methods and will enable you apply
them and catch a few fish. All articles are written using a simple
to follow, detailed step by step format.
If you are a total beginner or fairly new to the
sport of angling, I suggest you have a read of the beginners section
and also the tackle and bait guides linked from the left of this
page. These articles are primarily written to help the new anglers
learn about the different fishing tackle, baits and methods so that
they can enjoy the sport of fishing along with the many million
other anglers around the world.
