By: Paul Zayer

You have decided that you want to learn to fish. We will call it Fishing 101. There are many ways to learn, the hardest is trial and error. It sure is better to find a teacher for one-on-one lessons. But lets stick to the basics of learning how to fish.

1. Buy seasickness medication

Nothing is worst than seasickness to ruin your fishing. Most seasickness medication e.g. Bonine can do the job. Even seasoned fishermen are known to take some on rough days. Take one prior to go to sleep, a second one when you wake up and one more before you board.

2. Buy a reference book

A lot of good books can be obtained at your bookstores and on the Web. The book will provide you instructions as well as terms and definitions. You might not understand everything at once but you should know anyway. Find out different ways to tie sorts of knots. This knowledge will be helpful for other purposes all your life.

3. Go to a party

There are party boats that carry from fifteen to as many as sixty anglers. The boat supplies everything like bait, reel, rod, hooks and sinkers. They assist you in fishing and take the fish off the hook for you. Mates will see you and will in general stay close to help you. Party boats generally will cost you between 25 to 70 dollars a day, and you can keep the fish. The party boat is a bargain for beginners.

4. Pick your pier

Assuming you have already acquired skills to operate a rod and reel, you need to look for a fishing pier. A lot of coastal towns have one public pier or pay-to-fish pier. You can buy bate and rent tackle at the piers. If you have problems, there are many pier anglers that can help and offer you tips.

5. Party or pier

You may want to do either step three or four or both at this point. To really learn how to fish and be good at it, the best thing to do is to do both several times.

6. The reel deal

What you are using up to this point is probably the conventional reel. The conventional reel has been designed for many wear and tear. You may now want to consider other sorts and makes of reels. Preferably you have met persons and perhaps made a friend or two who can help you in selecting a reel. You can even get tips by asking a tackle shop employee.

You need to know the mechanics of the reel and the other equipment. Learning to cast, tie knots and bait are not that complicated. You also need to learn where to fish. Successful fishermen know where the fish are located. Fish go from place to place and knowledgeable anglers are aware of these patterns and can anticipate where the fish are located. As you can see learning how to fish is not that hard really. You just have to put your mind to it and practice. Good luck with your new fishing adventures.
