    please can somebody help a helpless but keen beginer to coarse fishing..!!!
    I've done quite a bit of sea fishing but really wont to start coarse fishing but i really need some help to get me started. Can anybody tell me how you set the right depth with your float so your bait is on the bottom and how do you know how much shot to put on the line and how to space it right. And last of all with sea fishing when you join the trace to main line you use a swivel how do you do it with coarse fishing. I don't know anybody to ask at my local lake yet so all help would be recived with many thanks..

    Darren I think that you should try the beginners pages on the site.
    David Cooper has completed an excellent series of articles that cover what you are asking.
    I can't be bothered trying to remember a hyperloop or whatever (isn't that a rod???)

    Hi Darren,

    As Dave O'L says above, David Cooper has covered all the basics in a series of articles which includes float fishing.

    Follow the hyperlink by clicking here and this will take you to David's first article.
    Scroll to the bottom of that page to find further articles in the series.

    Graham has an article on useful anglers knots here

    If you want to tie a hook to nylon use the loop to loop method.

    Double overhand knot-make a big loop of your main line, wrap it round your thumb twice, and then put the end of the loop through the 2 coils on your thumb.

    Figure of 8 knot- make a loop, take it back over itself then take the loop end back through the the coil youve just made.

    hard to explain in just words!! The fig 8 knot is the stronger one because the line doesnt strangle.
