Question by green_crayon: best fishing reel for big carp fishing and best rod help please, money isnt issue?
Hi there,

I am wanting to buy a rod for big car fishing, but i want an all rounder rod, caus i want to go fishing in my nearby lake which has roach and such.

I was just wondering what would be the best reel to buy, ive heard shimano reels are good but which one would be best.

Also what would be the best rod to buy?

Overall i want a reel and rod which is pratical for all types of fishing and would be alright for big fish as well.
