Default carpin

Hi everybody,

The more and more i see people catching carp on a fly the more i want to catch one.

I have a few questions ablout this fish and catching it.

First question. what weight of rod should i use: i know i shouldn't use my little 5 weight on those fish. ive seen people shoot 20 pounders on average where i'll be going with my fly rod.

What flys should i use: i dont have any clue on that

What: fish should i target: should i target splashing fish with their tails in the air, fish swim along the shoreline or fish basking in the sun.

What size of tippet: I want to catch the fish not lose it.

Thanks for your advice everyone.

"I have a river runs through it on blue ray, so yeah, I guess you could say I know a thing or two about fly fishing."
