Both spinning and spin-cast rods spooled with 8- to 10-pound-test line work well for all but our largest carp. Many anglers prefer spinning reels with rear drag controls for easier adjustment when fighting a large carp. Use hooks in sizes 4 to 8, with shanks long enough to hold the bait of your choice.
For that reason, what is the best fishing line on the market?
So is, what is the best hook length line for carp?
Anything from 2 inches to 5 inches would be ok for fishing over beds of bait. When fishing single hook bait tactics, or with a couple of stringers, I generally use longer rigs from 8 inches right up to 18 inches in length. The longer links have more natural movement and I find they produce more takes.
What is the best breaking strain line for carp fishing?
What is the best line strength for carp fishing?
Use 10lbs line (0.20 – 0.30) for distance work. ...
Choose 15lbs to 20lbs line (0.28 – 0.45) for general carp fishing. ...
Go to 25lbs line (0.35 to 0.50) for carp and catfish fishing in an ultra rugged environment.

The 4 strands incredibly strong braid line is extremely abrasion resistant and made for fishing around hard structure.
Long Lasting Coating – Unlike braid lines using water-based dyes that wear off easily and allow water to penetrate the fibers, the braided line utilizes an unique coating that is the best at preventing color fading and color loss, and increases UV resistance.
Extreme Sensitivity - You can cast farther and better, clearly feel any slight bites with the thin and low memory braided fishing line. Your hook setting power increases dramatically giving you higher percentages of hookup ratio and fish landed.
Smooth & No Burr - This braided line contains smooth plait without burr and allow you to conveniently pass the lines through the rod guides for improved casting experience.
Wide Application - Whether you fish for bass, trout, walleye, muskie or any other species, our line will perform great in freshwater, saltwater, surf fishing, ice fishing or bow fishing.
Just how much farther braid casts remains debatable, but its smaller diameter compared with mono means it flies through the air and cuts through water more easily. ... The stronger braid allows them to pull fish from structure quickly where mono might give the fish time and distance to wrap a few roots.
With fluorocarbon, you're getting low visibility, thin diameter, and good sensitivity. It has some stretch when you set the hook, but not as much as monofilament. It also tends to be abrasion resistant. ... Fluorocarbon falls much faster than mono, so use that to your advantage!
Although the Daiwa Hypersensor (above) may offer a reduced diameter and a higher abrasion resistance – Daiwa Sensor is great value, but just as effective! Available in either dark brown, or as a clear monofilament – it is a carp fishing line that has won multiple awards!
