The Big Fish Off Guide to Fishing is perfect for anyone looking to get into fishing as it gives an in-depth look at some of the tackle and techniques that were used during the show, as well as being a great read for more experienced anglers as it covers a wide variety of species and some more advanced techniques, as well as some of the behind-the-scenes stuff that the teams got up to during the making of the latest series of five programmes.
With 248 pages in total it is packed full of information such as checklists of exactly what you need for that type of fishing, as well as some great diagrams that show exactly how to set up some of the rigs used during The Big Fish Off, and everyone is bound to learn something from it!
It starts off looking at the basics of how to get started – as seen when Ali and Dean are joined by the likes of Sally Gunnell and Anna ‘AK’ Kelle who have never picked up a rod before – and then moves on to a wide range of topics, including who to tempt specimen fish, as well as taking a look at one of the top fishing holiday destinations at the moment, Thailand, and specifically Gillhams Resort where the climax of the latest series takes place.
Kurv Shank, The Kurv Shank is a fantastically versatile hook. It's agressive hooking properties make it ideal for pop-up presentations and bottom-bait rigs too. It features in some of the most devastating rigs that we know, including Danny's trademark IQ D-Rig and Ali Hamidi & Gaz Fareham's pop-up combi rig. It owes its fantastic hooking properties to the sweeping curve of the shank, in-turned eye and long, straight, needle-sharp point. Those features make this pattern a great hooker when used without shrink tube. A simple knotless-knot rig will suffice when using the Kurv Shanks.
Kaptor Choddy, Chod-rig fans rejoice, because you can now have the finest chod-rig hook ever made, in two subtle camou colours. So why camou a hook? Well, ever since Danny Fairbrass founded the Safezone principle, our subtle camou end tackle has been catching more carp for thousands of carpers. Its those little extra percentage points that add up to the capture of a lifetime and having camouflaged hooks definitely counts towards having that season-defining session or gets you one step closer to that landmark carp. As with the rest of the Kaptor range, the Choddys have been produced in Weed Green and Gravel Brown colours, to match most lake bed situations. The clever green Kap that protects the needle point on a Kaptor also prevents the point becoming coated in the PTFE camou coating during the manufacturing process, which means that theyre that little bit sharper than other similar coated hooks neat eh? The hooks themselves are just the same as our existing Choddys all those key features such as the outturned eye, extra-strong wire gauge, specially configured bend and claw-like beaked point, remain on the Kaptor version. Perhaps weve just created the ultimate in chod-rig hooks? We think so, and we think that you will too!
4" QM1 Speed Stop, These ready tied rigs are tied with the all-conquering QM1 hooks, which are guaranteed to provide the most secure hook holds going. The rigs are four inches long, which makes them perfect for use with conventional Method, Hybrid and Pellet feeders. Speed Stop bait attachments allow for the speedy mounting of soft baits such as luncheon meat, worms and corn, as well as boilies.
F1 Pellet Hooks, The F1 Pellet hook has been designed for targeting the F1 carp, a fish found in many commercial fisheries. They’re strong, yet relatively fine in the wire, which makes them able to land even quite large carp on the pole. They feature a beaked point for extra-secure hook holds and an oversized spade, which allows them to be used with thicker line, for robust bagging situations. They have been finished with a special anti-glare PTFE finish that does not impede the sharpness of the hook. The F1 Pellet family includes sizes 14, 16, 18, 20 and 22.
