Winter. Tackle for carp
To catch carp in the winter is not as easy as to draw out the hole even more difficult. The fish took the bait, you need a detailed approach to the choice of winter gear, but consider the upcoming fight during playing.
More successful is the winter float rod with a bait casting or spinning reel. The use of reels allows the angler to absorb sudden jerks carp and more versatile and convenient to make catching large specimens. But here we must remember that in extreme cold, spinning reel can bring some problems.
To equip a fishing rod appropriate fishing line is not very thick, ranging from 0.25 mm to 0.2 mm in diameter. If you use braided cords snap, their thickness may vary between 0.04 mm – 0.06 mm. In the cases of catching wild carp (carp) in remote areas with snags, better to take the line thicker, up to 0.3 mm. If fishing is carried out without the use of the float, and with a sensitive nod, then the line should be kept all the time in the tense situation.

For example, during warming, fishing for carp it is better to use small floats 40-30 mm sliding type or “Wager”. In the frost of the well-proven alarm float type “Tablet”. Also, in a severe frost, when there is a likelihood of freezing of the fishing line, fishing is better to attach a removable float that after hooking the fish, you can easily unfasten.
