Tippet Inquiry:



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.

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

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!
