Tips for Buying Carp Gifts
Buying gifts for carp anglers is not always easy, particularly if they have a favourite brand of if you’re not sure what equipment they already have.
That being said, here are some tips to make sure that your gifts are a hit, from someone who has been given some terrible carp fishing gifts in the past. (That sounds very ungrateful I know!)
Don’t buy carp gifts from Argos or Etsy
Typically any carp fishing items that you find on these sites are poorly made and are not up to the demands of modern day carp angling. I would avoid both of these for that reason.
Instead, head to your local tackle shop and ask the guys in store about gifts and they will be able to point you in the right direction. Here’s something I was given once in a secret santa. Not ideal for taking fishing, but OK for storing leads in the basement!
Avoid buying terminal tackle
Carp anglers can be very particular about the terminal tackle they use, tending to stick to certain items and rigs that have worked for them in the past.
For that reason, I would steer clear of any terminal tackle items such as hooks, swivels, hooklink materials etc. Instead try to opt for gifts that will get some use whilst fishing but also doing other activities too. That’s why clothes are always a winner!
Check their favourite brands first
Carp anglers have favourite brands and can be very weird about mixing and matching. Try to get a sneak peak at their gear to see what brands they use for luggage, clothing etc. Stick with that and you’ll be on to a winner.
