Tippet Inquiry:

Discussion in 'Warm Water Species' started by FLYRODR, Mar 28, 2010.

  1. Would like to hear what size / length tippets are being used when carping... are carp leader shy? I'm usually fishng within a foot or two of water and have wondered if a heavy tippet would discourage them from picking up the fly.
     
  2. no less than 2x, 1 x seems about right. Carp are very spooky but not leader shy....you need to lead themby about 2 feet. If you line them its over
     
  3. Yeah, I recently bought some 12# flouro that should do the deed when carping... Seems you can get away with goin pretty thick on the carp. Just DONT line them!
