Most anglers take their fishing very seriously but the British take things to a whole new level with their Carp Fishing Tackle and Toys.

Carp Fishing has yet to become popular in the US but in Britain and even Australia where people fish for carp for environmental reasons as much as for sport, carp fishing has been enormously popular.

Most people in the States see Carp as a 'junk fish' but more and more people are fishing for these fish for entertainment and game value as well as the fact you can catch carp at some really monstrous sizes.

Carp are fairly easy to catch, though you do have to be patient and it pays to not play with your rod too much as carp have very good senses when it comes to vibration and they can be easily frightened from taking bait when there is a lot of commotion near your cast. Also keep the tension off on your line, if a carp senses tension on the bait chances are it will become spooked.



The best bait to use are pre-prepared dough, although you can make your own dough for carp from a huge number of recipes that are available online, Creamed corn also works very well too and its probably a good idea to bring a few different baits to experiment with and see which works best for you.

The British are totally crazy about their carp fishing and some of their toys are a little over the top, but for someone who is really serious about their fishing gadgets like the bite indicators can be an extremely handy little tool to have.

In the way of Carp Fishing Tackle, it really depends on the size and species of carp you are looking to catch. As carp can be easily spooked the smallest hook and the lightest test line possible as if a carp sees the line it may think twice before taking your bait.

The trick with selecting the best Carp Fishing Tackle is a fine balance between having the lightest line and smallest hook as to not frighten carp off as well as having a strong enough line to cope with a fair size fish as well as a strong enough hook to withstand the punishment a carp can give. If your looking to land a true monster Carp, try and use a low visibility line to prevent any fish being spooked .

Typically carp are not a fast or explosive type of fish once hooked although they are very strong and can provide a good sustained struggle which is why they make great game fish.

One thing that is probably most important when trying for Carp is to be patient, let the fish suck and nibble at the bait as it takes a little while for a Carp to feel completely comfortable and fully take a bait.
