Our first St Johns adventure made angling history in Underwater 7 and landing the lake’s biggest resident, The Big Plated, was a euphoric moment for team Korda. However, Underwater 8, which was filmed during the same session, reaches new heights and breaks even more ground on our underwater journey!
For the first time in the history of this unique series, Danny Fairbrass hands over the fishing reins to Ali Hamidi and Tom Dove. New methods are tested, tactics such as solid bags and pop-ups are used for the very first time, alongside many more eye-opening approaches. The lads take an amazing haul of fish culminating in yet ANOTHER 40lb carp, making Underwater 8 the pinnacle of our work in this area.
Sit back, put your feet up and get ready for the angling shock of your lives.
This is Underwater 8…
Overweights, Damian Clarke designed these super-slick additional weights for fishing at long range, or with tight lines. Because the length of the Stow bobbin has to stay the same to ensure that they drop away on the bite, Damian had to find a way to add weight without adding length. The Overweights are the result. They slide over the weight that is supplied with the Stow heads. An internal shoulder stops them from sliding up and down the head. Overweights are available in 6 gram and 8 gram versions and in packs of two or three.
Compac 100, Compac is the ultimate in tackle storage, keeping items you take fishing neat, organised and handy when you need them. This range of EVA luggage is extremely lightweight and durable, and is made from a waterproof material with welded seams. Each item in the range can be accessed from the top via a two-way zip, and opens in a way which allows you to see everything inside, plus this lid also has an interior zipped mesh pocket for keeping anything that you need instant access to – such as a baiting needle and boilie stops. Currently there are four items in the Compac range – Compac100, Compac125, Compac140 and Compac200 – which will cover everything from storing smaller items such as leads; through to the mid-sized storage systems which are ideal for spools of hook link material, a TackleSafe or Mini RigSafe, or even to keep all your bits for a certain style of fishing, such as on the surface or stalking, altogether in one place so you can grab it when you need it; the largest size can easily accommodate spods, marker floats, bottles of Goo, Chod Safe, Zig Box, or countless other items.
Dark Matter Braid, This is a super-supple, super-heavy braided hook link with a clever banded-camou finish that blends in well over most lake beds. The tough fibre filaments are tightly woven, making for a supple-yet-tough hook link braid. It's been designed to sink extremely well, hugging the contours of the lake bed that you're fishing over for maximum subtlety. Dark Matter Braid lends itself to a host of rigs, including solid-bag presentations, the Slip-D rig, Darrell Peck's simple bottom bait rig and, of course, combi rigs. It's available in 15lb, 20lb and 30lb breaking strains.
