Carp fishing is a popular and challenging sport that requires specialized equipment to be successful. At HF Angling, we offer a wide range of carp fishing tackle to suit every angler’s needs. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, we have the gear you need to catch the big one.
Rods are the foundation of any carp fishing setup, and we have a variety of options to choose from. Our carp rods are designed to handle the weight and power of a large carp fish. They are typically longer and stronger than other types of fishing rods. If you’re into feeder fishing, we also have feeder rods that are shorter and more flexible than other types of fishing rods. Our match rods are designed for match fishing, where anglers compete to catch the most or biggest fish. They are sensitive, allowing anglers to detect bites easily, and are typically shorter than other types of fishing rods.
Reels are another important piece of carp fishing tackle, and we have a variety of options to choose from. Our bait runner reels have a secondary drag system that allows the angler to keep the line in a free spool while fishing. This allows the fish to take the bait without feeling resistance, making it more likely for the fish to be hooked. We also have multiplier reels that have a gear ratio that multiplies the turning of the handle, allowing for faster retrieval of the line. This can be useful when trying to quickly reel in a large fish.
Lines are an essential part of carp fishing tackle, and we have a variety of options to choose from. Our monofilament lines are a versatile line that can be used in a variety of fishing situations and are suitable for most types of fish. We also have braided lines that are made from multiple strands of material braided together and fluorocarbon lines that are made from a fluoropolymer which has properties that are similar to monofilament but are more invisible underwater.
Terminal tackle is an essential part of carp fishing tackle. Terminal tackle includes items such as swivels, leads, rig tubing, and rig rings. These items are used to create and maintain the rig, or the setup of the fishing line and bait. Swivels are used to prevent the line from twisting, leads are used to weight the rig, rig tubing is used to protect the line from abrasion and prevent tangling, and rig rings are used to attach the rig to the line.
Bivvies and shelters are an important part of carp fishing equipment, providing protection from the elements and privacy while fishing. They are often used in carp fishing and come in a variety of styles and sizes, such as one-man, two-man, and even three-man bivvies. Sleeping bags and fishing bed chairs are also important equipment to ensure you have a good night’s rest after a long day on the water. We have different types of sleeping bags, chairs and bed chairs to suit different needs and weather conditions.
Carp fishing also requires specialised nets and landing mats, which are designed to protect fish from injury during landing and handling. Landing mats are used to create a soft surface for the fish to land on and to protect the fish from the hard ground. Bite alarms and bite indicators are also important for alerting anglers to a bite, allowing them to quickly and effectively reel in their catch.
Bait boats are a unique type of carp fishing equipment that are used to remotely deliver bait to a specific location. These boats are controlled by a remote and can be used to place bait in hard-to-reach areas, making it easier for anglers to target specific fish. Umbrellas, sunscreen, and bug spray’s are also important for protecting yourself from the elements as are thermal clothing and rainwear.
Finally, a good carp fisherman should always have a first aid kit, portable water filter, a camping stove, portable power bank and multi-tool, knife, lamp, batteries, tools and a tackle box. This will help to keep you safe, comfortable and well-prepared for any situation.
