The mission was simple. Go to the busiest day-ticket complex in the UK and fish St Johns, one of the most popular lakes, which is steeped in history and full of pressured carp that have seen every trick in the book.
What do these Carp respond to? What are their favourite baits? Which rigs do the business? What do they make of hi-viz baits? Will the St Johns monsters put in eagerly anticipated appearances? With seven years of carp-fishing development since the last Underwater film, can Team Korda come out on top, or will the carp win this underwater duel?
The latest instalment in our underwater journey saw everything thrown at the team. Expecting tame spring temperatures, they instead received hurricanes and hailstones, with lashings of pain! At times it seemed like a lost cause. There were moments when it seemed like we were destined for failure... But, fate has a wonderful way of working its magic.
Do you want to see some of the most enthralling underwater footage ever produced? Do you want to see angling history being made? This is Underwater 7; sit back, put your feet up and enjoy the start of a new era in our sub-surface, carp-fishing voyage...
Spod Braid, This braid casts superbly well, thanks to its low diameter, allowing you to bait spots right at the limit of your casting ability. You'll notice that it has a rather unusual fluoro green colour, which helps to deter seagulls when baiting up with a throwing stick or floater fishing. Gulls just won't swoop down when the hi-viz line is snaking out across your swim. It is hard-wearing and has high knot strength, which is key when you consider just how much punishment that your spod setup is subject to over the course of a year. There are 300m on each spool, so you'll be able to spool up more than once, as long as you back your spool up. We recommend that you use a 30lb Arma-Kord shock leader to take the force of the cast - you can attach this using a back-to-back grinner knot.
Big Eye Swivel, You asked us for these, so we added them to the range. These swivels have one very large round eye and one normal size one and, as with all our swivels, they come from the best Japanese manufacturers and have our trademark 'anti glint' dull-grey finish. They have three major uses. Firstly, they make very smooth running rigs when used as a replacement to the swivels found on the top of our leads. They were originally designed as part of the running rig kits. But, after too many enquiries to mention, we had to add them to the range. The second obvious use is for helicopter rigs. The large eye will rotate better if a large bead is used, whereas a smaller swivel would bump around the larger beads circumference. In other words, the large eye will slide effortlessly around it. They can also be used at the top of a link for the marker float - the large eye will allow the line to pull through that bit easier than a standard swivel. No doubt you will find other uses we haven't even thought of yet.
Link Loop, Quick and easy rig changes are a necessary part of carp angling today. The Link Loop has been specially designed to replace the need for an overhand loop in the end of your hook link. The obvious advantage is the increased strength due to the use of a grinner or blood knot used to tie the link loop to the rig, especially when using monofilament or coated hook link materials. The Link Loop will fit both sizes of the Stik Klip as well as the Kwik Link. The low-diameter steel and teardrop design is easily pulled through all of the Funnel Web System bags, using a baiting needle. As with all our metal products the Link Loops are finished with a non-reflective coating to give the best camouflage possible.
