When it comes to tying up your Zig rigs, the new ZIG line is the perfect choice of hook link material and is purpose designed for this type of situation.
Zig Line has reduced stretch, making it a fantastic line for surface fishing as well as helping to produce strong hook holds.on zigs and on the surface.
low diameter for its breaking strain at just 0.22mm for the 7lb version; 0.25mm for 9lb; and the 11lb breaking strain line is 0.28mm. The low diameter makes it harder for the fish to see it mid-water, or on the surface due to its reduced silhouette, and these camouflage properties are aided by its tinted green colour.
Despite these properties it is still quite a tough line and has a very high knot strength as long as you are careful, with Palomar and knotless knots being ideal.
Zig Line comes on 100m spools
DF Rig, Who wouldn't want to fish like Danny Fairbrass? Let's face it; the head of Korda catches more than his fair share of fish of all sizes, home and abroad. Well, as of right now, you can get one step closer, by using the DF ready tied rig range, which are available from all Korda stockists. These rigs have been tied to the exacting standards that Danny insists on from tried and tested components. The hair length, loop size and amount of coating stripped back are exactly as DF himself would use, allowing you to take a giant leap towards carping success! So, what exactly is the DF rig? Well, it's the rig that Danny has refined over the past decade, tweaking it and substituting new components as better technology has become available. It's a versatile rig that can be used for straight boilie fishing or with plastic corn over the top of spodded particles. It's a great hooker that lends itself perfectly to use with critically balanced presentations, standard bottom baits or pop-ups alike (with the addition of a split shot, Sinker or Dark Matter putty of course). It features all-time classic hook, the formidable Korda Wide Gape, with its secure beak and robust forging, coupled to the best coated braid out there, N-Trap Soft. Of course, the shrink tube is our finest Safe Zone stuff, and the rig rings are Korda through and through. Buy a few of these rigs and it'll be as if you had Danny with you on the bank, tying your rigs for you!! There can be no finer recommendation than that, can there? The standard DF rigs are available in barbed and barbless versions, in sizes 10,8 and 6, and come in packaging that keeps them nice and straight and protects those all-important hook points, keeping them needle sharp!
Pellet Pliers, Often in fishing it is the devices that help you to more effectively carry out fairly simple tasks which will make the biggest difference to your catch rate, and that is definitely the case with the new Pellet Pliers, which have only just been released.Banded pellet is a great way of fishing hard pellets, but they can be very tricky to position the band around correctly, even at the best of times, let alone when you have cold or wet fingers.The Pellet Pliers are a simple device that make the task of banding a pellet very quick and easy, but there has still been a lot of thought which has gone into them to get the product just right and ensure that it works perfectly.They basically work on a reverse-pliers design, whereby squeezing the handles together opens the jaws. A pellet band is simply located in the groove on the nose of the pliers, which can then be stretched open with a simple squeeze of one hand, and your chosen size of pellet is positioned inside the band.To finish off the process, pressure on the pliers is slowly released and the banded pellet is removed from the jaws – the tapered design of which makes this task easy to perform.The spring-loaded design makes all of this very easy, without being so strong that there is any danger of damaging the pellet during the process, plus it is compatible with all different sizes of pellet.Pellet Pliers are finished in Guru orange colour, making them highly visible, so you’re unlikely to mislay them whilst you are fishing!
QC Ring Swivel - Round, These clever swivels have been designed to make chod-rig fishing even easier. They feature a rounded crook rather than a conventional eye, into which you can clip a looped chod. To create the loop, you can either tie an overhand loop or crimp a loop into the end. These loops can then be 'clicked' into the loop and won't come out unless you want to change a rig. The swivels are PTFE coated, which prevents light glinting off, potentially spooking feeding carp.
