Default Carp flies and tactics

Hey all. I know we have the "Carpin" thread going but this is geared towards anyone starting out on carp such as myself. I wasn't aware until recently that I live near some really great carp waters. I have never targeted carp before but am now looking forward to trying my hand at it. I was wondering if anyone could give me the basics of what I'll need, such as:
  • Rod weight
  • Leader/tippet size
  • Must-have flies
  • Extra gear
  • Strategies to hooking up
  • How to play the carp once you're hooked

Really any advice would be great. Thanks in advance.
