In the summer period when temperatures are high we sometimes like go out in the early mornings to fly fish for carp. What gear do you need? A fly rod with a good backbone like the #7 SAGE X If you want to make your fishing more exciting you can the REDINGTON Butterstick fiber glass rod which you will see in use later in the video. The fly reel should be a large arbor style reel. Have a good brake system. Futhermore is a high capacity for backing needed because the carps often run into the backing. Then you need a normal WF floating line like the RIO Gold. And a tapered leader with tip diameter of 0.25 mm or even 0.30 mm This depends on the size of the fish that you are fishing for. For flies we recommend bread imitations. Sometimes the carps will also take damsel nymphs or other flies. This you have to experiment with yourself. Especially when it has been warm for a longer period the carps will be actively looking for food This is the time that fly fishing for carps can be very effective. You will of course need a lake or river that have a good population of carps. I this case we brought the BOTE paddle board to go after the carps with. With this you can get very close to the feeding carps and do some pürsch fishing. The BOTE paddle boards is also excellent for pike fishing When in place you now need to place you fly near the feeding carps. Important is that when you set the hook wait for a while so that the carps will have time to turn with the fly. Otherwise the fish will not be hooked efficiently But you can wait for to long either. Because then the carp will spit out the hook again. This type of fishing is very hard and exciting form of sight fishing Even for a professional like Rudi Heger it can be hard to set the hook right every time. Have fun with the fly fishing for carps!
