These durable rubber stops have a multitude of uses for float and feeder fishing. They're so tight that, once slid off the convenient sprew, they won't slip, even on fine-diameter line. They are available in three sizes, small (5mm), medium (6mm) and large (7mm). Guru's Adam Rooney explains why they're so good, We all use line stops and for years we have used other brands, so we thought, why not do our own? Rather than copying what was available, we discussed the key features we all wanted from the simple stops and produced these three sizes, which make a nice addition to the range.
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.
Ring Swivels, PTFE coated ring swivels that have a host of rig-making applications! They are most often used to connect the hook link to the lead system. The size-eight ring swivel fits our lead clips perfectly, giving your rigs an extra degree of movement. The size-11 ring swivels are most often used on helicopter rigs.
Bait Floss, Our first bait floss is the perfect addition to our chod kit. Its absolutely perfect for tying on pop-ups of all descriptions, especially cork ballers. The floss is flat in profile, which helps it to grip the surface of even the hardest, smoothest pop-ups. Once youve tied the bait on, using the knot shown below, simply run a cigarette lighter flame around the floss, which will render it transparent. Each spool holds fifty metres of floss, which will last ages!
Square Pear Swivel, Without any doubt, when fishing on a hard gravel bottom inline leads hook the carp quicker than swivel type leads. The reason for this is that the fish always pick up the lead from the heavy end first, because the hook link is always attached to the heavy end of the lead. In the case of Korda inlines the swivel is actually semi-fixed inside the lead, exaggerating the 'instant bolt' effect. What Dan set about doing after watching the fish hooking themselves on Part 4, was to design the most condensed shape of lead possible. So, a fish would have to move the minimum distance before it felt the full weight of the lead. Now, the most condensed shape of all is a ball, but a ball could possibly roll around before the full weight is felt and it isn't tapered towards the back of the lead enough to stop the hook link tangling around it. So, Dan chose to put four flat sides onto the ball and gently taper the back to avoid tangles. An appropriate name that summed up the lead, was of course the Square Pear. As an inline there is no lead out there that the fish will feel the full weight of more instantly. Even as a swivel lead, the fish will still feel more of the weight sooner because it's so short and one end of the lead is almost the same as the other. Only the movement of the swivel will make a difference. So in short, you have the most condensed inline lead and swivel lead there can be, with flat sides that works in a fishing situation.
