Korda - Flat Pear Inline Leads

There's a popular misconception that flat leads sit on silt. This does not happen, any lead finds the easiest path through the water so instead of fluttering down to the lake bed, a nose-heavy flat lead like this will plummet down side on and nose first, making it less effective in the silt than say a Swivel Pear lead.

The condensed shape of this lead, coupled with the two flat sides makes it the perfect lead for bolt rigs at short to medium range.

By its very nature the flat pear lead lends itself to being fished on marginal slopes, the sides or back or gravel bars and in rivers. But, in fact it is one of the most effective shapes at short to medium range because it holds so well on the lake bed and offers fantastic impact hooking potential.

We have also seen that this type of lead is by far the most like a stone on the lake bed and during the Underwater filming this lead blended in better than any other.

Having said that, it is devastating on gravel and is Danny's first choice in these close-range, hard-bottomed situations. Danny told us that, "When Underwater part 3 I tried a Flatliner Pear on the steep gravel slope to see if it really did hook the carp quicker than a swivel lead of the same shape. To my amazement it really did! I had been testing the lead clips for so long I had ignored the inline lead - not any more!"

Korda - Wide Gape Hooks

£4.50

The Wide Gape hook has become a true design classic, and has accounted for more big carp than any other pattern. It was based on the cult Maruta Kinryu pattern that found favour with the likes of Terry Hearn in the 1990s. The five-degree in-turned eye, short shank, heavily forged bend and beaked point combine to give anglers a hooked-to-landed ratio far in excess of anything else that's achievable. It can be used for pop-up and bottom-bait presentations and is the hook to opt for when fishing for the very biggest and trickiest carp around.

Sticky Baits - Manilla Pellets 900g

£4.99

Highly effective in specimen and carp fishing these peanut protein covered pellets have a multitude of uses, the first layer of the pellets contains high levels of soluble milks and peanut protein. This layer disperses a dense cloud of attraction against the lake bed. The second layer of coating is full of natural salts and sugars as well as Madagascan vanilla extract, proven to grab the carps attention!

Nash - Hair Stops

£1.99

Versatile, easy fit hair stops.

ESP - Cryogen Gripper Hooks

£4.65

The Gripper was subject to various design tweaks through the development process and the end result was well worth waiting for! The super fine, long curved point is the perfect shape and during testing, provided exceptionally secure hook holds. Other features include a 10-degree in-turned eye (slightly less than the Classic to allow for the inclined beaked point), heavy forging, micro barb and of course, the slick PTFE Tufflon coating.
