Fishing for common carp

Choosing a fishing place. Where a trophy carp is unlikely to take a nozzle. Bait-bait. Tackles for catching carp on the top.

Fishing for carp is long-established
In the southern provinces, and now in the territories and regions, fishing for sharks was the most common thing. Oilcake is still called Makukha there. But much has changed in our time.

Large carp is caught on special carp rods with a length of 3.6-3.9 meters and a fishing line power of 2.7-3.5 lb. Test indicators of these rods are usually 135-150 grams. Equipment in this case is also used by cyprinids, where ready-made installations can be used.
