Hi, I am 12 and going on holiday to stalham on monday and am taking some fishing rods.

I was wondering if anyone could help me set my rods up. I have been fishing for a few weeks now but still don't know hot to set up a float properly.

I normally find the depth of water then put the float on the line and put 2 weights either side of the float then a couple of smaller weights down the line and tie the hook on. So the hook length is the depth of the water.

Is that right? is it best to always fish on the bottom and also how do i know where the fish are. Do i just put a maggot on the hook, cast out and if i don't catch anything then move on somewhere else?

I also need help with carp hair rigs.

I have been given hair rigs , and i just need to attatch a boilie which i can do. But at the other end of the rig there is a loop. do i just tie my line to theat loop, put a big weight on and cast out. do i neeed a certain float?

Any help would be greatly appreatiated. Thanks

Hi Mitchsnake and welcome to our forum.

It's almost 2:30am over here where I live, but I thought I'd have a quick hunt on the internet for some nice reading for you. I haven't had a chance to read through it all myself, but I hope it will be useful.    

I looked for something that was layed out in sections, because I thought that you might like to print it out and have something to read on your journey.

Have a great holiday on the broads and please let us know how you got on:

Hi, these links are great and really helped me. Thankyou so much. I really appretiate all the help and i should now catch some decent fish.

I am going to print every bit of info that i get from everyone  and take it with me. I have also wrote notes of some of the best places to fish on the broads that i got from this forum.

Will take pics of the fish i catch and post it on here when i come back along with the exact location caught, haven't got scales though so can't weigh the fish if i get big ones. lol

Thanks everyone.

You'll have to help Grant out as well Smile  one thing I would say is don't use a keep net in this weather release them straight back in the river. Quite a lot of good sized fish have been floating about dead in the heat they need to be able to be able to breath and the salinity level must be quite high because there are Sea Bass on Breydon at the moment edibale sized one at that.

ok will look out for moonfleet. Thanks everyone for all your help. Won't use a keepnet then, was going to but don't want to harm the fish so will leave it at home.

Can't wait till tomorrow. Going to do some night fishing with my dad as well. Really excited.  Smile

If you hunt round you find there are some threads sbout carp fishing.

If night fishing and using a gas latern just check with the yard, if on your own boat keep any opened gas appliance and any spent cartridges in the gas locker they can leak especially if they get hot. Not obvious because the flow of gas in use cools the remaining contents which later expand.

Good luck anyway always want to night fish at your age but my grandfather never took me Mad
