    Default Newbie to fishing

    Hi all, I'm completely new to fishing and tbh don't have a clue what I'm doing/talking about. Me and my boy are wanting to get into a bit of carp fishing but don't know what the right rod and reel would be for a good starting point, from doing a bit of research online I've been thinking about buying a Fox Warrior X 12ft 2.75 rod and combining it with the Daiwa Tournament SS2600. Just wondered what people's thoughts where on this combo and if it would be sufficient to last hopefully last a long time?! Cheers in advance, Joe.

    Wouldn't be my choice.

    Daiwa Emblem 5000s (Golds) reels (with a 12 lb line) plus a 3lb TC rod the Tackle Box rods are certainly worthy or the Soniks.

    That would be a fine starting choice. For the most part, rods are rods and a daiwa or shimano reel will last as long as you need it to.
    Pink reel seats on your rods?!

    what was it that drew you to carp fishing and not another branch of the sport?
