    Look very carefully at what others are doing, and then do something completely different!

    If you're writing an article on top tips, go on a fishing forum and get peoples top tips.

    Then copy into your article, saves loads of time thinking them up yourself

    What I would like to know is:

    "If you could offer a new angler one top tip to help them with their fishing - what would it be?"..

    I need a minimum of 100 responses to validate the research so please help me out!

    Why would you presume he's fishing for carp? We're talking about a beginner here. Surely what he should be learning is how to catch smaller species using the float, especially if we are talking about a youngster. Then he can move on to the larger species once the basics of angling and watercraft are understood.

    What dose it matter? Replace carp with fish and jobs done. Its the same advice either way.
    Why should he catch small fish first? If he has no intrest in roach and perch hes not going to enjoy it is he?

    For the same reason I would question someone being taught to pike fish or barbel fish first. That is simply fishing for a single species and the new angler will miss out many valuable aspects of fishing because they can be so specialised. It also encourages the notion of so called 'nuisance fish', a term I strongly object to. Quite simply, teach the newbie to fish first and then they can decide on the species they would prefer to target.

    The fish don't care what rod you have...

    The fish don't care if you have all 'branded' tackle...

    Enjoy it and don't get too hung up about things...

    Don't fish a lake for carp that have no carp in it. Ensure that you have the latest rods, reels, line, bedchair, bivvy and luggage. Ensure that the latest rig technology is adhered to. Watch all 627 Korda DVDs, Make sure you are a member of several angling forums for all the best tips, fill the lake in with the most expensive bait you can find. Cast as close to the middle of the lake as possible, this is where all the carp are, don't fish the margins as you can't play your radio full up, dance or talk loudly if you do. Take a tablet computer so you can watch film and play games whilst fishing, do not look at the water as the carp might jump out and make you jump. If you do see a carp jump out, just look back at the computer as you might miss something exciting in your film.
