you will need either willow water or rooting hormone, sphagnum moss and a water proof wrapping material.
(I use Visqueen pieces cut to wrap around the branch and moss twice and long enough to be tied to the branch above and below where I want the roots growing).
For layering this time of year pick a branch that is at least as large in diameter as your thumb, make 4 narrow V slits 3" long in the bark, these need to be deep enough that you almost get to the solid wood but not through it.
Willow water can be used in place of rooting hormone if it is fresh.
