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.
LWG, These hooks have been tested for some time (indeed, you may have seen them on the Guru website in features!) and launched in 2013 in both eyed and spade-end versions. They're made from a lovely, light wire that will handle everything up to, and including, match-sized carp. They're a super all-round hook that is perfect for use with pellets, maggots and sweetcorn on a range of waters. They're favoured by Guru match ace Andy Bennett and he uses them to amass huge weights from commercials up and down the UK.
X-Safe Elastics, Elasticated X-Safe stems that replace the standard inline stems that come with our inline feeders. They're super-safe and allow a fish to ditch the lead should they get cut off or snapped off. They have been designed to fit Guru method feeders, pellet feeders and hybrid feeders. They are supplied in packs of two and come with X-Safe Tail Rubbers.
Korda Polo, Coming in two shades - black and olive green - these stylish polos have been designed from scratch by Korda's in-house apparel team and made to our exacting specifications. Constructed using a lightweight Dry Kore material that offers amazing fast-drying properties, they're designed to keep the angler fresh and well ventilated whatever the weather. Naturally, they look smart too with a subtle Korda logo on the breast and green highlights on the collar plus a matching finish on the sleeve hem. They'll look at home stalking carp on the bank or in the pub with some mates. Other details include aeration holes in the under arm area to keep the wearer cool and dry and a vent cut on the bottom hem to aid ease of movement and ventilation. They are available from S - XXXL.
Ali Hamidi's Carp Fishing Masterclass, 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.
