This hook was designed primarily for use with the popular chod and hinged stiff rig presentations, alongside a stiff filament like Mouth Trap. However, its appeal doesn't end there, it's a super all-round pop-up hook, which can be used with rigs like Darrell Peck's N-Trap pop-up rig, as well as Tom Dove's N-Trap bottom-bait rig. To allow the sweeping curve of the chod rig to continue unhindered up onto the hook, the Choddy has an out-turned eye. The rest of it's shape is based around the magical dimension of the iconic Wide Gape pattern, with all its attendant hold-and-hold capabilities. The Choddy is thicker in the wire than the standard Wide Gape, which makes it perfect for the biggest carp in the world. Darrell Peck has landed fish to over 70lb on the size-eights, which gives you an insight into the incredible properties that this hook possesses.
Solidz PVA Bags, Twelve years ago Korda launched the first ever PVA Funnelweb system and this product has stood the test of time. Yet again we have taken PVA to another level with our Solidz range of PVA bags. Korda Solidz are designed to deliver a compact package of bait at any range and will be a huge hit with all you solid-bag users. Some of the country's most successful carp anglers such as Ian Poole and Jake Wildbore swear by them! Manufactured at Korda to a stringent specification, using the highest-grade film available, Solidz have a virtually neutral PH, melt rapidly and are extremely robust. They are absolutely ideal for distance casting, due to the soild, extra tough base. They leave zero residue when they melt, are completely aroma free and biodegradable. Our range of different sizes should suit every occasion and what's more, they are particularly easy to load thanks to the bag loader that comes complete with every pack. Simply load up, construct the bag and catch some carp!
Underwater 8, 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…
Pear Swivel, The classic pear lead will cast a very very long way, almost as far as the Distance Casting and it is less affected by cross winds because the shape is very condensed. This means that the Pear lead is suited to most carp fishing situations when fishing anything up to the very limit of your casting ability. The dumpy shape can be used to your advantage in silt. Try using a very light pear lead say 1oz or 2oz and actually let the lead plug into the silt, this will dramatically increase the resistance to a carp moving away with the rig, so what feels like a light lead in your hand is transformed into a heavy lead in the fishing situation. Because the lead has a large rounded end it makes 'feeling' the lead hit the bottom easier than more slender or pointed shapes. If you are new to this technique this lead will make the job easier. The pear lead is also ideal in a solid PVA bag because it can be pushed down into one of the corners. This makes the bag nose heavy and so more accurate.
QM1, Just one look at this radical hook pattern will tell you that it's designed to stand out from the crowd. The unique, heavily swept shape and short shank have been precisely engineered to make sure that you land more fish. This is carried through into a sharp, beaked point that'll provide super-secure hook holds. Each QM1 is PTFE coated to prolong its slick, sharpness. So, why the unique shape? Guru teamed up with mercurial commercial matchman Steve Ringer to design the perfect hook for hair rigging baits on bolt presentations. Their designs may look different to patterns that you're familiar with, but the proof is in the hooking and you WILL lose fewer fish using the QM1s. The specimen market has quickly cottoned on to the effectiveness of the QM1 and some of the very best (and we mean VERY best) specimen hunters use the larger sizes while hair rigging for barbel and chub on rivers or tench and bream on stillwaters. The QM1 is available in sizes 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 and the hooks come supplied in a protective box.
