Default Re: carpin

ok first off you should use a 8wt rod for em. but you could land up to a 13lb carp on 6x tippet with a 5 weight rod. but for the big ones i wouldn't trust it. patterns are mostly brown they bite the best on them. you want to target them when they got their tails up in the water and their head is in the ground then you know that they are feeding. i read where some guys got 20lbs plus and they where in a boat and they had to follow the carp with they boat because they were almost out of backing. so i hope this info helps
