The eight-show run features the cream of Team Korda, along with a few new faces, tackling some of the premier venues in the UK, for your enjoyment. The shows are presented by TT veterans Danny Fairbrass, Ali Hamidi and Adam Penning and feature a guest list that includes Simon Scott, James Turner, James Armstrong, Tom Dove, Richard Stewart, Neil Spooner and Mark Bryant. We’ve also got a couple of extra-special guests for this season; Eastenders star Scott Maslen and The Only Way Is Essex’s Micky Norcross (with the Sugarhut Honeys in tow!) fishing our very own Birds Green Fishery.

The venues are typically diverse in character, ranging from the intimate Hunts Corner in Oxford, through to the picturesque and historic Yateley North Lake and the pressured Kingfisher Lake on the Bluebell complex.

Underwater Part 7 Unlocking The Day Ticket Code
NOW IN STOCK
New to Total Fishing Tackle is the latest Underwater DVD from Korda. It
was filmed at the Linear complex on St.Johns lake and amongst the many fish
they caught was the big mirror known as 'the big plated'.
part of the DVD focuses on the early part of the filming including, of course,
the incredible footage of the Big Plated falling foul of Dan’s rig. It gives us
an up-close-and-personal view of the performance of Dan’s favourite tactics as
the wary St Johns fish come in to feed in front of the cameras. You’ll watch
engrossed as the drama unfolds both out in the lake and inside the Trakker
Colossus control centre pitched next to the lake. The reaction of the team as
fish feed and ‘get away’ with it time and again gives the film another
dimension and you’ll be on the edge of your seat with them!
significant is the new instalment of the Underwater franchise? Well, Ali wasn’t
pulling any punches, “As we filmed we were telling people that we were making
history and by the time we’d finished the shoot, I really felt that we had made
history. It will take a monumental effort to better what we’ve just done.”
Underwater Parts 1-6
Danny Fairbrass and the Korda
team go sub-surface and opens up the wonderful world of carp fishing, directly
in front of the camera. Watch monstrous carp react against our everyday rigs,
check out the way that they feed on certain baits and areas of the lake bed.
You cannot fail to learn from this groundbreaking series.
Filmed at what is known as the fishing
‘Theatre Of Dreams”, namely Horseshoe Lake in Gloucestershire. Danny discovers
many things on this DVD and there is loads to learn. Things such as…
…how does a spod full of bait land on the bottom?
…when do they feed on it?
…what is the right amount of bait to introduce and how important is location?
…are the Tench really as cute as we have been told?
…do the Carp really muscle the Tench out or will they feed together?
.how much bait do the nuisance fish eat and does the whole spod mix get to the
…what's the reaction to pop-ups?
…and much, much more
Korda follows a marker float from 80
yards out, right up to the margins; through gravel and sand. Using split screen
technology we marry this footage with exactly what Danny is doing on the bank
so you can see if what we think is out there is really out there. You will
never find out more about feature finding in one video. We film from the rig to
the rod tip with 4 of today's most popular braided, mono and fluorocarbon
lines. We note their appearance from every angle. How much is on the bottom and
show you ways of hiding the line better than ever. How do modern leader
We also give you a priceless insight into just how effective, or otherwise,
modern day rigs and indicators are.
Does braid make a difference?
Are running rigs better than bolt rigs?
Add to this an in-depth look at how rigs settle on the bottom, camouflage
tricks, rigs for weed and gravel, how weed lies on the lake bed, inline and
swivel lead options and too many other edges to mention.
Shot at RMC's aptly named 'Blue Pool' in the south of England this film again
concentrates on studying the carp feeding on the lake bed from a fishes eye
In footage that far exceeds that achieved in Part One, we are able to show you
how the carp feed on free baits and those connected to a rig, and you will see
carp actually hooking themselves on, and getting away with, many of today's
most up to date rigs.
Follow Korda's founder Danny Fairbrass as he moves through a host of
presentations in order to achieve consistent action from these very cute clear
water carp. Getting the first bite proved far more difficult than expected,
Danny's problem solving mind is stretched to the limit which has in turn given
carp anglers everywhere a far more informative film on how to fool wary carp.
Danny recalls 'Shooting and editing this film has made an immeasurable
difference to my fishing and I challenge any carp angler alive to not learn
from this footage. With a new super wide angle fish eye lens and a narrow angle
close up we are able to cut from a view of the whole swim to just the rig
allowing you to study the carp in its natural environment like never before.'
Add to this new space-age graphics and chaptering by rig, this two disc, 3.5
hour epic can be enjoyed in a single sitting or broken up as you wish. So pull
up an easy chair, relax and prepare to enter the world of the carp!
Following on from the groundbreaking
footage in Part 3, Part 4 concentrates on the carp’s reaction to PARTICLE
For the first time ever watch the carp feed and get caught on maggots, the
feeding response they create is different to that of boilies alone. Follow
Danny as he continues to look at new ways of fooling these very wary creatures
in the clear waters of RMC's Blue Pool.
Action comes from the first cast and no less than 9 carp are caught on camera
from the moment they pick up the bait to rolling over the cord of the landing
net, add to this lost fish, aborted takes and countless occasions when they
sense something is wrong and avoid the rig. Plus, watch Danny falling in and
being caught with his trousers down!
Part 4 features more underwater footage than ever before and many detailed
sections on how Danny puts his maggot and particle rigs together, including a
totally new way of camouflaging the hook which will put more fish on the bank
Korda's professional approach to film making with the usual 'Space Age'
graphics and chaptering enable you to enjoy this near 4 hour epic in a single
sitting or broken up at your convenience. So once again its time to hang up the
rods for an evening and get ready to take your carping to a new level!
Join Danny and the team as they
undertake the mission to catch and film from start to finish an English 30lb
carp on the banks of the beautiful Wellington Country Park. Filmed more in the
style of a documentary you will be able to watch from the moment the cameras go
in. See the frustrations the team have with technical problems then witness the
excitement as the crystal clear waters give host to the best footage of big
carp feeding ever filmed.
The cameras follow Danny as he tries to fool some of the wiliest carp the team
have ever filmed and with new technology watch as the 'close up' really does
give a fishes eye view of the rig and the carp picking up and getting away with
lots of different presentations.
Danny says 'Filming part 5 was in parts very frustrating, loosing a really big
fish at the start of the film was heart breaking, as trying to catch a 30lb
carp in front of the cameras was perhaps a tall order. But with help from the
team, we achieve what we set out to do and I think we have delivered a film
that anglers of all abilities won't fail to learn more about carp and there
behaviour in the swim. The footage in parts is incredible; it's like having an
aquarium full of 30lb carp in your living room it will get everyone thinking!'
Part 5 is without doubt a 'must see', sit back and prepare to be taken to the
edge of your seat by possibly the best carp fishing film ever made!
Part 6 of State of the Art Underwater
Carp Fishing was filmed back to back with Part 5 and details the ongoing
session on the now famous 'clear patch' at Wellington Country Park.
Because the fishing is in full flow and the carp have already been fed on the
spot for over a week, the action is instant. Bites come from the first few
minutes and Danny and Damian suffer the traditional 'highs' and 'lows' of big
carp angling in front of the cameras.
This film is concerned almost exclusively with 'Boilie Fishing' which many
followers of the series have been asking for. Many new rigs are used,
including, Stiff Rigs, The Long Hair, D Rigs, The Chod Rig and The Drop Off
Inline. As such the film boasts new underwater footage which will leave you
both inspired to try new things and perplexed at what to try next!
In a totally new 'twist' Danny invites top anglers Nick Helleur and Steve
Fantuzzi of Yateley Angling fame to survey the scene on the underwater camera's
and design a rig to suit. Their respective styles of fishing are 'distinct'
from Danny's which adds a whole new dimension to the film.
Danny says 'You can see instantly that we are in full swing the moment the film
starts, and those big Wellie 30's are hungry and ready to out smart us, or so
they think! This film 'flows' more than any other with new rigs, plenty of
bites, special guests, stand up rows in the swim and an average weight of
29lb's! So sit back, get your note pad and pen and be prepared to add another
dimension to your angling. Part 6 cannot fail to put extra fish on the bank for

life, just like you. That’s why this book should appeal to all carpers,
irrespective of experience.

Ali Hamidi's Carp Fishing Masterclass
you've all been waiting for is here. After years of hard work and graft,
fishing for lovely carp throughout the UK, Ali Hamidi has finally launched his
very first book and what a cracker it is!
The book, named Ali Hamidi's Carp Fishing Masterclass contains OVER 330 pages
forming a mindboggling 32 chapters of detailed carp catching information. This
is a must read for any carp angler, irrespective of experience.
With so many methods at an angler’s disposal it’s very difficult for many carp
anglers to understand what to use and when to use it. Ali Hamidi’s carp fishing
masterclass however helps to demonstrate exactly how to get the best from a
huge number of methods in any given situation.
Ali himself has extensive experience combating big fish venues but is equally
at home cutting his teeth on heavily stocked and pressured day ticket venues
like most of us day to day carp anglers. It's this experience that makes the
contents of this book so valuable to the reader and will help people of all
abilities to convert time on the bank into fish in the net.
This book is primarily focused on outlining the most important processes of
carp fishing. It dispels myths about tackle and baits and helps to describe the
best way to approach your angling. The detail of knowledge that Ali passes on
has to be read to be believed. The focus of the book is to help all anglers
understand many skill-sets.
- Darrell Peck My Misspent Youth
Misspent Youth is the story of a young lad who dreamt of catching big carp
above all else. The story charts Darrell’s carp angling life so far, from early
beginnings at the little-known Essex Quarry aged 17, to holding his own amongst
some of his idols at some of the UK’s toughest circuit waters. Read how Darrell
catches some of the UK’s best-known carp, including the incredible Two-Tone
from Conningbrook, Yateley Car Park’s Arfur, Heather and pals, and the Fat Lady
from St. Ives. Darrell’s determination to succeed, along with his obvious
natural gift for catching carp, shines through in this deliberately honest
“I’ve known Darrell for a
number of years now, however, it wasn’t till I watched the man in action during
a season of fishing with him down the Essex Manor that I realised just how
amazingly gifted he is as an angler. I’m a hugely superstitious person and a
great believer in destiny, which is why I KNOW Darrell was destined to be an
angler, the natural hunting instinct was built inside him from birth! Great
people no matter what their trade or skill make things look easy, and Darrell
does exactly that with fishing. It’s not just one single element that makes him
so brilliant at what he does, it is the culmination of bringing together lots of
traits in his angling that result in success wherever he goes, along with
lashings of natural talent. Just speaking to him about fishing, you realise he
just ‘gets it’! I’m surprised he wasn’t born with rod rings up his arms and
If I could have a mere 10%
of his talent I’d be a happy man. Sit back, indulge in this amazing book and
understand for yourself what sets him apart from the pack.”
