Black Friday is not far away. However, some retailers are already announcing their offers. I’ve been sifting through all of the deals so far, from rods and reels, to bite alarms and bivvies. Here are our favourite offers so far on Carp Squad recommended gear.
If you’ve been waiting to purchase some new carp fishing gear, Black Friday is definitely the time to do it!
We’ll be updating this list throughout the week, but let’s take a look at them early deals:

Advanta Discovery CCX Straight 6 Bed – Our Pick
