A new wave of young Carp Fishing enthusiasts take part in Korda Carp Academy 2018. Budding young anglers from across the country came together for another fantastic event on the prolific Todber Manor.
Carp Academy is a program run by Korda Developments to encourage young anglers and teach them life long fishing skills. 23 enthusiastic 13-17 year old carp anglers to Todber Manor Fisheries, Dorset. We then assigned them to some of Team Korda’s finest angling minds including Tom Dove, Darrell Peck, Simon Scott and Rob burgess. Every element of carp fishing was taught including the fundamentals like identifying hook sharpness, finding the fish and casting accurately.
Lessons were learned, a huge amount of carp caught, PB’s were smashed and plenty of laughs were had! Thank you to everyone who took part especially the students, we are already seeing the rewards from catch shots they send us on a regular basis and we look forward to seeing them continue to progress in the future

Korda carp fishing machine Darrell Peck uses a DEEPER Pro Plus along with an adjustable zig rig. Find out how he uses it to catch some beautiful carp from Hardwick and Smiths on the Linear Fisheries complex.
Darrell visited Linear Fisheries to film a session video on the famous Hardwick and Smiths. Due to its varying depths it’s the perfect lake to showcase just how useful the Deeper Pro+ can be and why Pecky uses it. The weather, at the time, was inconsistent so Darrell had a variety of options on how he could fish… including zigs, adjustable zigs and on the bottom.
Darrell Peck explains, in his own words, how the approached this short 48 hour session:
“Arriving to the ChristmasTree Swim on Hardwick-Smiths I saw several fish show. Having never fished that swim I wanted to get a rough idea of the depth in this area so I could set my zig rigs accordingly…. initially I thought my DEEPER was broken. As when I cast it in the area I had seen the activity the screen instantly become filled with fish icons. It was only once pulled it back and they disappeared that I realised what I had already seen was the tip of a mother pod of carp sat over deep water. My opening gambit was an 8 foot zig, but after an hour without incident I knew something wasn’t right. Another quick cast with the deeper showed they were still there and I decided to change to an adjustable zig rig so I could work the layers without needing to recast. Setting the zig 6’ down had the desired effect and from that point forward I was waiting on average just just 30mins between takes. This fish was the biggest at just over 30lbs”

NEW Linear Fisheries B1 – Carp angler Danny Fairbrass is joined by Korda sponsored angler Lawrence East at one of the UK’s best big carp day ticket fisheries… Linear Fisheries, Oxford. In this episode of Thinking Tackle On Demand the guys take on a lake known as Brasenose One, home to two and a half thousand carp.
Danny arrives to find Loz already set up and “working his arse off” but with nothing to show for it… yet. Danny F decides to start the session with Zigs after seeing hundreds of fish on the surfaces whilst the camera guys were flying the drone. Black, Yellow and Brown foam cannot tempt the fish over several hours so Danny decides to put out the bottom baits. With no boilies in sight, he spombs out sweetcorn and hopes the fish will begin dropping onto his baited area.
Danny explains; “This session is all about effort and Loz is the man to show you how to do it”. Watch as the guys show you all the tips and tricks to get bites on a highly pressured, but highly stocked venue.
This Thinking Tackle is a great representation of ‘modern day’ carp fishing and showcases what lots of people have to deal who may not be on a syndicate. The venue is a Mecca for carp anglers as there really are so many big fish due to the amount of bait that gets fed into the lakes. A large amount of thirty and forty pound fish is the reason lots of anglers travel from all over to visit Linear Fisheries.
Danny F goes through how he finds his spots when marketing and also talks about his decision to use only sweetcorn alongside plastic corn hook baits.
Loz takes a slightly different approach and sends one of his baits “Margaret the maggot” out to spread the word that the guys are desperate for a fish. With Danny focusing on corn, Loz decides to fish with maggots and uses them medusa style as a hook-bait. He attempts to separate himself from other anglers on the lake to grab a bite.
The high pressure and hot weather slowly begin to change and that night Danny manages to net the first carp of the session. In his own words “my first Brasenose carp for about 10 years” and its a pretty 21lb mirror carp.
Following this fish it all goes quiet, watch as Danny and Loz talk about approaching quiet spells when fishing and how to approach the situation when the fish are simply not feeding. The two experienced anglers give an insight into how they react and deal with the less than ideal scenario, including how often (or not) to keep baiting even though the bites are not happening.
Loz decides a move is the best way to combat the lack of action and heads for an area that clearly has fish present. A few zigs fired out amongst them and then spodded over the top.
“Fishing with Loz is exhausting, its always inspiring to fish with people that are very aggressive in their fishing, very driven. Its like fishing with Darrell, it makes you fish harder because you are trying to catch up… there is no slouching allowed”.
As it gets dark Dan’s first rod off the baited spot is away and he battles to guide it away from disturbing the other rods. With Loz on hand and “rubbered up” in his waders already he nets Dan’s second B1 carp of the session. It is his BIGGEST Brasenose carp ever! A pretty 30lb 04oz mirror with a nice collection of large scales around its tail.
The guys continue to battle on and eventually the hard work pays on for both Loz and Danny… including another Brasenose 1 PB for Danny.
Tips, tactics and an insight into fishing with plastic baits and maggots gives this episode a classic Thinking Tackle feel. It’s one not to be missed.
