I wanted to put together a simple parts list for my carp fishing so far. This is to help new people. I will provide links to Ebay to what I personally ordered, or similar items. I will not link to things that can be purchased at Walmart or "locally" Stage 1 I started carp fishing in the way many have before, using a method feeder. I started with lightweight method feeders because my first rod and reel was a walleye combo from Walmart. I cut a 12-15inch length of flourocarbon to attach to the swivel inside the method feeder, and a surgeon's loop at the other end. That way I could easily remove the method feeders instead of having 15-35g bouncing off the rod. To the other end of the swivel, I tie a #6 curved shank hook with braid into a KD rig. On the hair, or the looped end sticking out behind the hook, I attach a piece of fake corn, and use a boilie stop to keep the fake corn from sliding off. The hooklength should be between 3-5 inches. Feel free to experiment. The tools you will need, or that will in the least be very advantageous are these. From left to right, is a knot puller, a gated baiting needle, a baiting needle, and a drill. You can use the baiting needle to puncture the fake corn, and hook it onto the hair. It's also great for tying small surgeon's loops. The gated baiting needle can be used for more fragile things, like real corn, or small edible things as the gated baiting needle uses smaller wire than the baiting needle. Stage 2 After fishing with method feeders for a while, i decided I wanted to cast farther. So, in place of the method feeder, I starting using PVA bags. I purchased these, and also this tool seen in the previous video. I used the same flourocarbon leader, and used the same hooklength. With PVA bags, you will need to use a PVA friendly (read low water content) bait, but can prepare them before going out, and store them. It will also allow you to inject liquids, like oils, honey, liquid deer attractants or even strawberry jam, into the bags after they are finished using a marinade injector. If something above needs more explanation, please feel free to post and I will add links or whatever else is needed.
