Rods for Carp Fishing

If you’re a keen angler and have your heart set on catching a prize-winning carp, then you’ll need to ensure you have the best carp fishing rod. However, no matter what type of carp rod you’re looking for we stock a huge range of carp fishing rods to suit every angler.

Choosing your Carp Fishing Rod

When deciding which rod to buy there are several key attributes you may wish to take into account.

Test Curve

The first and the most important is the test curve of the rod. If you are fishing at close range on small waters, then a 2.5lb or 2.75lb test curve is fine. However, if you are fishing a large gravel pit and need to cast a long way then a 3.25lb or 3.5lb is ideal. For medium size waters a 3lb test curve is ideal.

The basic rule of thumb is the further you need to cast, the heavier the test curve of the rod. If the fish in your lake are large or if the water is very weedy making it harder to land the fish once it’s hooked you may need to increase the test curve slightly.

Another thing that may influence the required test curve of the carp rod you choose is the need to cast a PVA bag. A PVA bag full of pellets and a lead can be quite heavy and therefore a larger test curve will help.

It may be helpful to know that the most popular test curve for fishing in this country is a 3lb test curve.

Length

When choosing your carp rod, you may wish to consider the length of the rod. The traditional length of a carp rod is 12ft, however, there are also a variation of lengths now available on the market. If you’re looking for a long-distance casting rod than you may wish to get a 13ft rod. Alternatively, there are also a range of 6ft to 10ft length rods – great for getting your rod into smaller gaps.
