Fishing is one of the simplest life skills to begin with, as it primarily requires just a fishing rod. To start, run your float between a couple of float stops, placing one above the float on your line, then the float itself, followed by two more float stops. The first step involves threading your float onto your mainline and securing it with a couple of large split shots.
Match rods are often used in competitions where anglers aim to catch the most fish within a time limit. A rod with a progressive action is advised for playing larger carp, as it helps prevent unwanted hook pulls. These rods, known for their parabolic action, are capable of handling bigger fish in rivers and stillwaters. The ideal float rods balance subtlety and play-action according to the size of the fish targeted.
Carp poles are known for their accuracy, speed, and control, especially when targeting large, powerful fish. The density of a fishing rod also matters; those with higher density than water will sink, while lower density rods will float. Our selection of rod and reel combos caters to various fishing styles and budgets, ensuring you find the perfect match for your needs.
When dealing with surface tow on water, straight wagglers are recommended for fishing over-depth. Our range includes waggler rods, quiver feeder, float, and match rods, offering a wide selection for every angler. A buoyant tip combined with a heavy 5xNo8 loading is essential to anchor the float securely, ensuring it submerges only when there’s a genuine bite.
