Welcome.  If you are missing fish or losing them its probably down to your hooks or the way your rig is tied and correcting either of those is not expensive.

 

Post on the coarse section describing what sort of waters you are fishing, what rod, ree, rigs & hooks you are using, and exactly what is happening and you can probably get some good ideas for catching rather than not.
