Ali's Carp Fishing Masterclass contains over 330 pages and 32 chapters of detailed carp-catching information. This is a must-read for any carp angler, irrespective of experience. With so many methods at an anglers disposal its very difficult for many carp anglers to understand what to use and when to use it. This book helps to demonstrate exactly how to get the best from a huge number of methods in any given situation. Ali himself has extensive experience combating big fish venues but is equally at home fishing heavily stocked and pressured day-ticket venues like most of us day-to-day carp anglers. It's this experience that makes the contents of this book so valuable to the reader and will help people of all abilities to convert time on the bank into fish in the net. This book is primarily focused on outlining the most important processes of carp fishing. It dispels myths about tackle and baits and helps to describe the best way to approach your angling. The detail of knowledge that Ali passes on has to be read to be believed. The focus of the book is to help all anglers understand many skill-sets.
4 & 5mm Beads, Soft rubber beads that are perfect for use with the helicopter setup. They feature a bore that is wider at one end than the other, which allows them to sit tightly on top of a small Sinker, creating a super-neat naked-chod bead. We have made two sizes available, 4mm and 5mm, both of which will easily pass over leader knots, making your setup safe. Green and brown versions available.
Floss Caps, Many of today’s most popular rigs involve tying baits on to rings or micro swivels with floss, and this can be far more fiddly than it needs to be. The Floss Cap takes all the hassle out of it, replacing your usual boilie stop – with available colours including clear, yellow and pink, so it can be matched to your bait – and once your hookbait is positioned just how you want it on the rig, you simply slide on a Floss Cap so that it sits flush, and then blob the ends of the floss with a lighter to hold everything in place. Tying baits on has never been so neat and hassle-free!
Large Rig Safe, This is the ultimate rig storage system for anyone looking for more capacity than the existing Mini Rig-Safe offers, or needs somewhere to store pre-tied rigs of 12 inches or longer. It will hold up to 90 rigs, thanks to one side of it featuring double-ended storage, and the clever magnetic locking system means that it will never come open accidentally during transit, but is very easy to open when you want to, even with cold hands! The Large Rig-Safe features a specially machined, ridged aluminium bar to retain the hooks and keep them razor sharp until you’re ready to use them, and it has been shaped so that if you’re using a curved shrink tube kicker it retains its shape if you store them point upwards. It comes supplied with 30 standard pins to hold swivels or loops in place on the high density foam inner, and prevent tangles, or if you prefer to tie your rigs to the right length when you arrive at the water, then you can make use of the 20 double pins which will keep those in place, rather than in a knotted mess! It is made from high impact plastic, meaning that it is very strong, and is finished in soft-touch rubber, which not only feels nice in your hands but allows a good grip on it even when wet. The outside is marked up to 12 inches or 30 cm, so you can tie your rigs to exactly the length that you require.
Swivels, The humble swivel completes the whole rig set up and since it is almost the last connection between you and the carp it needs to be reliable. We always bought swivels from the same source, until our suppliers' supplier merged with a new company. The stocks were mixed and some were not as good quality so we immediately set about sourcing an alternative. They say that from every adversity comes an equal or greater benefit and in this case the swivels we located came from Japan - arguably the best swivel manufacturers in the world. They matched the size of the originals exactly, improved the breaking strain and reliability, and made them in a lovely dull grey tint. This was an improvement that entailed only a marginal increase in price - 10 per cent over 10 years! The swivels have round eyes because they are stronger than diamond eyes, if this were not the case then hooks would be made with diamond eyes! They fit just about everything that we make including - the Inline Leads, Lead Clips, Running Rigs, Shok Beads and Rubbers, what more can we say!
