Thinking Tackle Online Episode 3 Simon Scott & Mark Bryant | Korda Carp Fishing 2018


Team Korda and Carp fishing friends Simon Scott and Mark Bryant return for very challenging Episode 3. The duo head north, up to Humberside, to tackle a venue very different to the gravel pits lakes found in the areas where they live. Embryo Angling’s South Ings fishery, a water that neither of them has fished before, has depths averaging 20 foot and dropping down to over 50ft in some places! A deep lake approach is used and Simon Scott talks through his tactics including his ‘slip d rig’ and how he uses boilies in his fishing approach. Mark Bryant talks watercraft and finding spots with a marker lead and also explains a “trick up his sleeve”…the Korda Kutter.
Oily PVA sticks created using Korda Boilie Funnel Web PVA are on the menu and help to ensure maximum attraction around the hook baits, a real edge if you dont currently use them.

Fisheries scientist Simon is particularly interested in fishing this water, as it was stocked with fish from VS Fisheries, which he runs alongside Viv Shears, and he is keen to see how his ‘babies’ are getting on and how they have grown since they were introduced. Unfortunately, they managed to time their session to coincide with torrential rain and high winds, which certainly doesn’t make life easy for them as they set about trying to tempt a few fish and get to grips with the venue.

This episode provides a good insight into tackling this type of venue and the sort of behaviour that you can expect from the fish in it, and it is very different to shallower venues which are often full of features. Simon and Mark attack the water differently, so there is plenty to be learnt as they show you exactly what rigs and bait they are using, and the thought processes behind their chosen tactics.

Like with every episode of Thinking Tackle Online, the show is being aired at the same time of year as it was shot. Meaning that you can literally finish watching it and go straight out and put it into practice – hopefully minus the gales and torrential rain though!
