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…
Pellet Pliers, Often in fishing it is the devices that help you to more effectively carry out fairly simple tasks which will make the biggest difference to your catch rate, and that is definitely the case with the new Pellet Pliers, which have only just been released.Banded pellet is a great way of fishing hard pellets, but they can be very tricky to position the band around correctly, even at the best of times, let alone when you have cold or wet fingers.The Pellet Pliers are a simple device that make the task of banding a pellet very quick and easy, but there has still been a lot of thought which has gone into them to get the product just right and ensure that it works perfectly.They basically work on a reverse-pliers design, whereby squeezing the handles together opens the jaws. A pellet band is simply located in the groove on the nose of the pliers, which can then be stretched open with a simple squeeze of one hand, and your chosen size of pellet is positioned inside the band.To finish off the process, pressure on the pliers is slowly released and the banded pellet is removed from the jaws – the tapered design of which makes this task easy to perform.The spring-loaded design makes all of this very easy, without being so strong that there is any danger of damaging the pellet during the process, plus it is compatible with all different sizes of pellet.Pellet Pliers are finished in Guru orange colour, making them highly visible, so you’re unlikely to mislay them whilst you are fishing!
Reaper Pole Section Retainer, You might be thinking that there isn’t really much that you can do with a pole sock, but this one has a few unique features which really make it stand out and will help you to fish more efficiently.To prevent your pole sliding forwards, most anglers attach either a pole sock or tulip flexing grip to their seatbox, but the Reaper combines the best of both.The Reaper features two pole socks and the clever design means that there is a tulip grip in-between them, so effectively you have a retainer that will hold three separate sections of pole.The frame is strong and durable, as are the ‘socks’ themselves, and there is plenty of protection around the edge of it to prevent any chance of damage to delicate pole sections, thanks to an EVA foam coating. The thick mesh used for the sock also provides plenty of protection for pole sections.Plus the socks are large enough that even the largest pole sections are easily located within them, with the depth of the sock made to make it as easy as possible, without having to pay too much attention whilst unshipping as you play a fish. The pole sock will hold anything from a single number four section, right the way up to a full 16m pole minus the top three.The Reaper pole section retainer is easily attached to seat box arms, and similar, via a universal metal screw thread.
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.
HeliSafe, 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.
