If you’re looking for a tough, reliable line that won’t cost you the earth, then Carp Line is definitely the one for you! During testing Carp Line has already become a firm favourite with those who got their hands on the samples, including Elliott Gray and it is now his line of choice when fishing with mono. It is amongst the toughest lines on the market, without being problematic to use, and in any situation where weed or snags come into play it should definitely be your first choice to spool up with. It will handle weed, gravel bars and mussels better than most lines, but if there are signs of abrasion then it is also cheap to re-spool, as it comes on 1000m spools priced at just £12.99 – the price and spool size is the same for each of the five breaking strains available, 8lb, 10lb, 12lb, 15lb and 20lb. The line sinks well, even more so once it has been used a few times, and is a nice subtle SUB-green colour which blends in well with most lake beds and is hard to see even in clear water. For such a tough line it behaves well on the spool and casts well, plus gives a very high knot strength. The low stretch factor makes it ideal for feeling the lead down to the bottom and making sure you get that ‘donk’ and are confident in where your rig has landed. Damian Clarke, who was involved in designing the line, enthused: “With lots of our products, especially fishing lines, we work with some of the best manufacturers in the world. “These guys are pushingthe boundaries in manufacturing to create thinner, lighter and more technically advanced monofilaments, but with Carp Line we took a step back. “Some anglers just wanted something simple and reliable, a does what it says on the tin product, so Carp Line was born!”
F1 Maggot Hooks, The new F1 Maggot hook is now in tackle shops and is the perfect shape for fishing smaller baits. It has been designed with maggots in mind, as well as being great for other similar baits such as casters and pinkies, as it has a fine wire that won’t damage these baits. It has a super fine, straight point and the shape, with a special gape and angled point, which means that these baits sit perfectly on the bend and it reduces the chance of hooking being impeded. Because of the slightly ‘open’ angle of the point, you’ll hit more bites on these hooks! The F1 Maggot is PTFE coated which results in a smoother surface, aiding penetration and preventing rusting during rig storage between sessions, as well as reducing ‘glare’ as the finish is duller. They feature a neat spade end and are barbless, with a range of sizes from 14 to 22 to cover everything from fishing on commercials for silver fish or F1s, right down to snatching bits on canals in the winter, and are suitable for use with the pole, waggler or feeder.
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…
