I'd back Peter about Snowbee, for the average caster they are ideal with a decent head length and a long thin running line, almost a shooting head but with better control. I've done a lot of this style of Carp fishing (mostly abroad) but also in the UK. If you're simply using pellets and getting the fish on top then its easy enough. BUT I got tired of this and started to nymph fish for them, I used a 5 weight mostly with a 6 weight Snowbee. I carried 3 types of nymph like I did for trot fishing, but in Dragonfly patterns, all dark green, with one small brighter spot on the head, long rubber legs too. One heavy for 6' plus, one medium 3' and one ultra-light. Most fish were caught in water under 3' deep. You don't get the take of a trout, you have to watch the line from tiny twitches. You also move the nymph slowly or not at all, they take on the drop or once its landed the water is mostly mudded. Some still-waters have a decent hatch of Damsel flies in summer, and they will take an imitation of them too. Blue or green worked for me, just resist the urge to move things like you would for pike or trout. Hope it works out for you Pike69.Hi guys I need carp floating fly line and there is a large market out there, so some advice is needed, pls.
