im planning on going to willowcroft in wisbech st marys, which has 60lb catfish and 48lb+ carp, and i think is a little bit weedy.

if your after 60lb cat you will need some thing like CATFISH-PRO Catlink XT if you get it in 40lb it will be ok for carp as well pure aramid (Kevlar) braided. I have had all my U.K cats on Sufix heavy skin but my ones have only gone to the 30lb mark.

if it is a bit weedy, get the strongest lb braid for the cats with a size 2/0 hook with 4 22mm halibut pellets (donkey chokes)
