What Equipment do I Need?

Recommended Posts

If I were to buy a rod and line for carp fishing, how strong should it be? I currently have a 14-pound rod (Same strength line), but usually only use this for small fish. 

Also, what kind of bait/hooks work best for carp fishing? 


I plan to start carp fishing this summer, so that's why I'm asking.

14lb rod??? Rods are rated as test curves and are calculated by clamping the butt section vertically and then pulling the line with a spring balance until the tip is horizontal.


This is a good starting point.

Wow, I didn't know that. I just thought that was the point at which the rod snapped. Should a 14-lb rod be okay, though?
