Tying stern-to to shore

There are many anchorages in my area where tying off to shore is beneficial. So far I have avoided doing this.
This summer I plan on heading to an area where space is limited and many anchorages recommend tying stern-to.
Any hints on how to do it so I don't look like a complete moron?
What length line(s) would you recommend to carry for this?
Thanks.
