Well it depends on what type of fish you're trying to catch. Take a look at http://www.scalzfishing.com/ There's a lot of good information on Surf Perch, Shark and Ray, Bass, Rock and Ling Cod fishing and much more.

 common sense and patience can catch yourself a fish but rigging a pole you might want to google how to rig a fishing pole or check on instructables the latter would be my decision first

To the top-right of every page is a search box.

Try these results, and then alter your search to get more specific.

This kind of answer discourages people from asking questions- especially young people!

It is like your kid asking you how to build a paper air plane and you tell him look it up in the encyclopedia.

There are many people who fish and can answer the question and we love questions like this as they are the reason instructables exist.

If YOU would like to learn to fish see my instructable:

If you noticed, I gave a direct link to the information he needed.  I'm not a fisherman, but I do know that a full answer to the question would have required many thousands of words, since the vagueness of the question would require answers for all kinds of fish in all kinds of water.
Why would you even respond to a question on fishing when you admit you are not a fisherman ?

If the person is smart enough to post a question then they already know how to use search- don't you think ?

Instead of posting these smug no help answers that discourage people why not go write some good instructables on subjects you actually know something about and answer questions related to those subjects and direct people to your instuctables for help ?

There are way too many people here thinking they have to answer every question or post a comment on every instructable and are just doing it as an ego trip.

Stick to subjects you are very familiar with and your answers will be more appreciated !

Give you the answer and you haven't learned anything. Better to learn to search and you can search for a lifetime.

I'd rather teach them to search for their own answers first.  That way they don't have to always depend on other people to tell them what to do and how to do it.

If you check the date and time stamp my answer came at the end of several that mentioned links to what they were looking for.

I still stand my my answer as a gentle push to do their own searches first.  If they did do searches first the I congratulate them.
There were only 2 answers and yours was the second!

this setup has never failed to get me a nice bucket of good trout, first you take a string, then you attatch a bent paper clip to that string, then you tape a quarter-stick to that paper clip, light it and throw it in the water, some good fish should float to the surface, collect them and place them in a bucket.
