Best advice is to join a club, local tackle shop or local paper for details. Fish their matches and you will learn very quickly.

Spend some time each match sitting behind someone who is catching and pick their brains. Ask if its OK first as not everyone likes an audience. Then go back to your peg and try out what you have learned. Don't be intimidated. In a typical club you will have all levels of ability and most people go for the fun and banter, though some will be serious and after the money. You'll soon learn who is who.

Maybe even ask if you can go out on a pleasure session or two with other members and then you and they will have more time for a bit of coaching. And don't be put off by the tackle. A good angler doesn't need all the best gear, though it does help.
