These leads are perfect for anywhere that you need more grip, like rivers, on the sides of bars, marginal slopes or boating out at extreme range. We have recorded that you can get the same grip with a 1oz Grippa as you can with a 2oz Swivel Pear lead. So, with that in mind, you can get away with a smaller lead to do the same job, which is an advantage when fishing for barbel and chub on the rivers. Also, a lighter lead makes a smaller splash so we like using them for casting to gently sloping island margins where a round lead can roll down. The Grippas have become massively popular on the continent where carping in wide fast flowing rivers is the norm and where you have to boat out baits massive distances.
Kontinental, These hooks are true beasts! The short shank, strongly forged bend, slight offset and heavy wire gauge leave you in doubt as to their fish-stopping credentials. They've been produced to take the securest hook holds and subdue the very biggest fish in challenging situations in the UK or abroad. They are particularly useful for fishing in snaggy situations, where that little bit of extra strength is vital. They're perfect for a range of presentations, including popular pop-up and bottom-bait rigs. As with the rest of the Korda hook range, the Kontinentals are produced by the finest Japanese hook manufacturer to our stringent specification. The range includes barbed hooks from sizes ten right up to two.
Wide Gape, The Wide Gape hook has become a true design classic, and has accounted for more big carp than any other pattern. It was based on the cult Maruta Kinryu pattern that found favour with the likes of Terry Hearn in the 1990s. The five-degree in-turned eye, short shank, heavily forged bend and beaked point combine to give anglers a hooked-to-landed ratio far in excess of anything else that's achievable. It can be used for pop-up and bottom-bait presentations and is the hook to opt for when fishing for the very biggest and trickiest carp around.
