The TK range of caps was designed by our in-house fashion designer. They're fashionable and functional and have been designed with you, the carp angler in mind. Choose from Kamo, Black or Olive to best suit your taste!
This timeless sunglasses style is uber-cool, and there are three versions to choose from, all of which have the finest quality lenses. First, we have the matt-tortoiseshell Classics with a brown lens. Then, there’s the matt-black framed version, which boasts grey lenses, and finally there’s the demi-tortoiseshell models with yellow lenses.
Lightweight Hoodie Black,
These new lightweight hoodies have been designed with both tailoring and flexibility in mind. They’re made from a cotton/polyester/spandex mix that’s light, stretchy and washes well. They’re a snug fit, but the spandex element allows total freedom when casting.
These are not your average outdoor trousers! The deeper you look into their design and features, the more breathtaking attention to detail is revealed. Our in-house fashion designer remodelled the military combat trouser, with style and carp-fishing functionality firmly in mind. The brief was to improve an outdoor classic, and he's done just that. The Original Kombats are lightweight, and quick drying, so you'll quickly dry out from an unscheduled dip, or a heavy summer shower. The material chosen is a 150gsm ripstop fabric that's stretchy, so the Kombats won't rip as you move and it also features innovative mountaineering-grade mosquito repellent and moisture-wicking technology. There are nine pockets on the trousers, both external, and cunningly hidden, so you can keep all your essentials with you at all times, without fear of losing them. The Original Kombats are available in dark olive and rifle green, and in the following sizes: S(w30), M(w32), L(w34) XL(w36), 2XL(w38), 3XL(w40) all regular leg length.
3-Rod Buzz Bars,
These buzz bars have been machined from stainless steel to the highest standards possible by JAG Products. There are four sizes in the range, which allow you to mix and match to create the splay that you want between the rod tips. Go from no splay at all by choosing matching buzz bars for back and front, to massive splay by choosing the narrowest at the back and the widest at the front, and everything in between!
These adjustable upright sections are available in three sizes (3.5in, 5.5in and 8in) so that your rods can be set up exactly how you want them. They have been precision engineered by stainless wizards JAG Products, to guarantee that they're the best quality available.
Ensure that your rod tips are level by adjusting the knurled collar on the top of the upright.
These clever stabilisers have been machined from stainless steel by JAG Products, and prevent your Singlez System from twisting on violent takes.We recommend using a stabiliser at the back and front of your setup.
Touchdown is a performance mono that has been designed to help you feel more as the lead impacts the bottom. This has been achieved by reducing the stretch, while maintaining the abrasion resistance and casting performance. It sinks well and has great knot strength. We've made it available in two versions, a low-viz green and a dark brown colour to suit all the lake bed conditions that you're likely to encounter. Touchdown is available in 10lb, 12lb, 15lb and 20lb, covering you for all carp angling disciplines.
Kable is Korda's first leadcore. Rather than simply producing a 'me-too' product, the product development team decided to try a unique, banded camo pattern in two colours, Weed/Silt and Gravel Brown. The carefully selected, alternating bands of subtle colour have the effect of breaking up the outline of your leader, making it practically melt into the lake bed. Kable has a breaking strain of 50lb and is available on 7m and 25m spools. It splices extremely well, producing strong loops for easy connection to the rest of your terminal tackle and main line. If you're looking for the perfect leadcore then you've just found it...
To use leadcore safely, leaders need to be constructed to exacting standards. That's why we've taken the doubt out and produced ready-tied versions that are every bit as good, and as safe, as the ones that team Korda tie themselves. What's more, being as they're constructed from the toughest of all leader materials, they're perfect for most things that UK carp fishing will throw at you. We will be releasing lead clip and Ring Swivel leaders in the middle of November. The Ring Swivel leaders have been designed for use with inline leads and the lead clip versions feature our new lead clips, which can be used semi-fixed or running and with lead clips or Kwik Links. You get three leaders per pack. Both versions are 1m long and are tied from our 50lb Kable camouflaged leadcore, which has won many fans this year already. In a world that imposes huge pressures on our time, any time saving products are very welcome, and these leaders are just that. You can literally use them straight out of the packet, with total confidence.
We've been working on a solution to a problem that anglers been faced with for some time, how to safely and consistently discharge the lead when fishing with a helicopter setup. In order to be a true game-changing product, the Heli-Safe had to fulfill some important criteria... One such criterion was the ability to fish chod rigs at range. The heavy leads needed to fish at long range often become a problem once a fish is hooked. The combination of a very short hook link and large lead would often result in dropped fish. Likewise, venues that had been choked by weed often dictated that dropping the lead was paramount, something that just isn't consistently possible with conventional systems. The demand from anglers to produce a drop-off lead system for use in these situations pushed us to develop the product you see before you. The Heli-Safe System enables you to drop the lead when the situation calls for it. When used in conjunction with our unique Helicopter Safety System and unique No-Trace Beads, you can fish a rotary-rig setup in situations that would have previously led to the loss of hooked fish. The system works by employing a pressure-release function, not seen in the angling world until now. The latched lead clip will open once a hooked fish pulls against the angler, allowing the lead to drop free. By threading a Barrel Bead onto the leader above the Heli Safe, you will prevent the lead from discharging, should you pick up weed or other detritus on the retrieve. Once engaged in battle though, the bead will simply pull down and allow the lead to discharge. The unique design enables the angler to choose when to drop the lead, and when to retain it. In situations where it's not necessary to discharge the lead, a small plastic collar (which is supplied in the kit) can be fitted to fix the lead in place.
The Heli-Lead has been designed specially for use with the Heli-Safe bead and are available in both green and brown. By fitting a ring to the lead loop, rather than a swivel, the attachment is kept super neat, yet flexible enough to ensure that the lead is only discharged when you want it to be. The leads are finished with a robust camouflaged paint that blends in superbly well over a range of lake beds and are available in sizes from 1.5oz up to 4oz
• Please Note: Due to varying stock throughout our stockists, lead colours may vary. If you have any specific requests please contact the retailer with the details provided after your purchase is complete.
This range of backleads can be attached using one hand, which is vital for trouble-free backleading. They are coated in the same way as our leads, and will pop off the line if snaged or weeded, hence the 'Intelligent' part of the name! They are available in 0.25oz, 0.5oz, 1oz and 1.5oz versions and come in packs of three.
The Korda Katapult was a long time in development, but it was worth it! The result is the perfect range of catapults and accessories, which will cover you for baiting at short and long range, with particles or boilies. We've made a Heavy Katapult, which is teamed with a small pouch for firing boilies a long way, and the Light Katapult, which has a larger pouch and is perfect for mass baiting with particles. The special rotating collars, into which the elastics fit, help to reduce annoying twist, and increase the life of your elastics. Spare pouches and spare elastics are available.
These distance sticks make fishing accurately child’s play. Rather than simply produce a me-too product, we decided to produce the best sticks that we could. That meant teaming up with JAG Products, who engineer to the highest standards we could find!
Each stick is a thing of beauty, with special grooves to prevent the line from spilling off, causing the dreaded bird’s nest. They also come supplied with a T-Bar, which can be used to drive the specially designed excavator auger point into even the hardest of ground.
Integrated spirit levels in the top of each stick allow for perfect positioning, and pop out to reveal a cavity, which accepts an isotope to allow you to wrap-up, even at night!
DropZone Marker Float,
Marker floats are a massive part of our armoury and finding particular spots can often be the difference between a red-letter day and a blank. Although there were some good marker floats already available on the market we still felt that improvements could be made. The first criterion from Danny was that the flight had to be extremely visible, anyone who has seen Danny fishing will know that he likes to fish at range! It also had to be light and buoyant. This took a while to get right but we achieved exactly what we wanted and the Dropzone Marker float was born. The floats are made from a thin but exceptionally durable plastic and come as a pair in their own tough, protective tube. Each pack comes with two flights.
SLR Balsa Marker Float,
The SLR Marker float is made of the highest quality balsa wood to ensure that it pops up even at extreme ranges. It's thin diameter and unique shaped flight makes it very stable when casting in windy conditions.
The reinforced plastic base cap increases durability when coming into contact with gravel bars and weed beds.
The float can be used with or without a marker stem.
Marker Leads (Pronged),
The sensitivity of the feedback from the pronged lead allows you to identify clear areas in sparse weed to the point where you can pinpoint exactly where the clear spots begin and end.
The original probe lead remains an integral part of our range as it’s ideal for skipping the marker lead through the weed whereas the pronged lead would snarl up quite quickly. The pronged lead is for finding small differences to fine tune how you approach your spot.
It’s not just about fishing weed effectively, the tremors produced by the pronged marker lead are far greater than a standard probe lead helped again by the fact that we purposely make them without a coating which cushions the lead and dampens feedback. Such sensitivity allows an angler to identify the finer differences and smaller details in gravel and silt too! You can now highlight the spots which transition from rough gravel to tiny pea shingle gravel or even from gravel to sand, you’ll instantly feel the difference down the rod. From thin weed, changes in gravel or finding small hard spots in silt which can be otherwise tough to find, this is the lead for you.
The weights available are 2,3 & 4oz. The lightest one combined with a smaller marker float is perfect for fishing close in for example, in a small bay to avoid disturbing the swim too much. The 4oz lead is great for fishing big waters especially if you’re fishing into the wind or combating crosswinds and the 3oz is a great all rounder for the ‘normal’ fishing conditions an angler is faced with.
The Wide Gape hook has become a true design classic, and has accounted for more big carp than any other pattern. It was based on the cult Maruta Kinryu pattern that found favour with the likes of Terry Hearn in the 1990s. The five-degree in-turned eye, short shank, heavily forged bend and beaked point combine to give anglers a hooked-to-landed ratio far in excess of anything else that's achievable. It can be used for pop-up and bottom-bait presentations and is the hook to opt for when fishing for the very biggest and trickiest carp around.
These little rubber hook bead fit tightly onto the shank of all of our hook patterns, and can be used to create a number of effective presentations. They’re perfect for use with rig rings, to create rigs such as the Withy Pool rig, spinner rig or even variations of the all-conquering chod rig. They come supplied on easy-to use sprews, which each old 20 hook beads. The beads are weedy green colour, which helps them blend over most lake beds.
Also available in Large for bigger, heavier gage hooks.
We've designed Kickers to help you make rigs that flip, turn and catch hold much more easily. To create a bottom-bait presentation that will guarantee optimum hooking, simply slide a rubber Kicker over the eye of your hook and you're good to go! Ali Hamidi and Tom Dove wanted to create something totally different with these Kickers, and decided to make them available in bright yellow, pink, red and white, as well as the normal green and brown. Their thinking was that adding more colour to the orbit of the hook bait would help grab the carp's attention even faster! If you're somewhat more old fashioned, like Danny, then you can still choose your Kickers to blend with the lake bed.
Available in small, medium and large sizes to fit hooks from 10 to 4.
Boom is a game-changing fluorocarbon! It’s our first fluorocarbon that can be crimped, which opens up a world of uses for rig tying. Its prime function is for creating stiff boom sections to help kick the hook bait away from the lead system, something Boom does each and every cast. You can use it to make combi-rigs, or out-and-out stiff rigs, for pop-ups and bottom baits alike. Your imagination is the only limit to its rig applications.
Being a fluorocarbon, Boom blends with all lake bed types and, thanks to its subtle, green tint, it’s always inconspicuous to carp feeding around it. Boom is available in 0.55mm and 0.65mm, on 15m spools.
This clever system will allow us all to reach brand-new heights of neatness in rig creation. The Krimps and Krimp tool have been designed to allow easy rig construction with stiff materials (at the moment we only recommend Hybrid Stiff, Mouth Trap and Boom). In particular, we're really excited about the potential to create extremely neat loops for chod rigs and Boom sections. Not only this, but using Krimps will allow you to create chod rigs that are exactly the same length each and every time. There are two sizes of Krimp available, which have been designed to suit different materials. The smaller one will suit stiff bristle materials like Mouth Trap and stiff coated braids, like our Hybrid Stiff, and the larger one is perfect for really thick materials (like 30lb plus mono or the 35lb Boom). The product development team went to extreme lengths to make sure that the Krimps and Krimp tools were exactly right, having to overcome various problems along the way. The complexity of getting the tool and Krimps just right has meant that this has been a long development, but we're sure that it's been well worth the wait.
Our first bait floss is the perfect addition to our chod kit. Its absolutely perfect for tying on pop-ups of all descriptions, especially cork ballers. The floss is flat in profile, which helps it to grip the surface of even the hardest, smoothest pop-ups. Once youve tied the bait on, using the knot shown below, simply run a cigarette lighter flame around the floss, which will render it transparent. Each spool holds fifty metres of floss, which will last ages!
Kiana Carp Goo,
Kiana Carp Goo is manufactured by experienced carp man, Ian Huntington to a secret reciepe, known to very few people! This enigmatic bait additive can be used to glug hook baits, or boost the power of spod and stick mixes. There are now 24 variants in the range, including blockbusters like Squid Supreme, Pineapple Supreme and the four Almond Goos, to name but a few. The combinations are limitless and we're only just scratching the surface of what is possible with these fascinating liquids.
QC Leadcore Leaders,
The latest addition to the leadcore leader range incorporates our Quick Change Hybrid Leadclip which features an integrally moulded swivel so the lead will come off easily if the fish you hook becomes snagged. The Quick Change properties of the clip helps you change hook links with ease. Each leader is made out of 1 meter of 50lb Kable camouflaged leadcore with a spliced loop on the end. Available in both weed/silt and gravel brown colours.
