This is wade & sight fishing to carp feeding in shallow water. These fish will average 5 to 10 pounds and fight like a bull dog.
-5 to 8wt rods with matching reel & floating line. You will need at least 50yds of backing.
-9ft leader tapered to 10lb test.
-Waders, if warm enough you can wade wet.
-Wading staff, helps you in the mud along the edges.
