@trublubug typically I'm aight fishing to carp within 40 feet that are tailing. The water is pretty muddy, so I can only see their tail. I only have a 6 weight right now, but with this carp I felt undergunned, so I'll be getting an 8 weight soon.
Sounds like a plan Mitchell although if you have landed them on the 6, you've demonstrated some real skill.
I usually hunt my carp with a 6 and only use an 8 when I need to toss a bigger fly. I think you mentioned in another post that your carp like big flies so the 8 seems a good idea to me. I use an 8 or 9 for big frog patterns or giant streamers.
