You wont go far wrong with Halibut Pellets or luncheon meat Eddie and dont forget that barbel love hempseed as well.
You want a decent rod of around 1.5 test suitable for feeder/ledger work and a good solid reel,a baitrunners an advantage but not essential. I'd suggets 10lb main line 12lb if its snaggy with a hair rigged pellet on a lower breaking strain hooklink and a running (safe) ledger rig. Good luck and If I can be of any further help just pm me.
