ROD SETUP

It all depends what your targeting. If your chasing carp then a 3-5 or 4-8 kilo rod with a 3000 or 4000 size reel is very appropriate. Heavier line starting from 10 pound would be a good starting point. When targeting Redfin fish as light as possible which will make the experience more fun and improve your chances. Redfin will actively take many baits or lures. To maximize your chances fish with a 2 – 4  or 1 – 3 kilo rod. The main line spooled with 4 pound braid finished with a good quality leader.
