IT’S A DAY LATE this week, but it’s here, and this Carp Blog on the Angler’s Mail website comes from Tom Burn of  Korda Developments.  As usual, some top carp fishing advice.

AUTUMN is a lovely time to work at Korda.

Primarily due to the inundating news we get from anglers that are out there catching fish, and at big weights too. The vibrant, autumnal colours of both fish and landscape really help get the angling juices flowing and build excitement for even the quickest of overnighters.


It’s been quite a productive month for Korda employees. James Armstrong managed a new PB in the shape of a 47lb 12oz Nene Valley common, finishing his season of nicely. Alan “Colonel” Perry managed a brace of beautiful 40lb commons from his Colne Valley syndicate, and plenty of others have been out catching too.

Sales staff members Adam and Gary were lucky enough to enjoy a Kordatorial with Mr. Peck and both of them scored well. Whilst fishing Linear’s St.Johns lake, Gary really got into action, catching 11 fish to over to 26 pounds, whilst Adam managed a new PB of 30lb 4oz.

Christmas is always a great month for product launches and this year is going to be no different. The highlight has to be the Fishing Guru’s Season 4 and Thinking Tackle Season 8 DVD releases. It’s one of the most anticipated launches every year and as a company, it’s something we hold dear to our heart. I can talk from experience because I was fortunate to be on location for a number of this year’s Thinking Tackle shoots, and have seen first hand, the amount of time and effort that is invested into these projects.

My recommended watch has to be the Blue Pool episode of TT8, which features Ali Hamidi and guest, David Seaman, in search of carp. It’s a roller-coaster ride of emotions and the mutual banter between David and Ali rounds off a great show.

Looking forward, we’re fast approaching the show season, starting with Sandown at the end of the month. The shows are great way to meet people, something that has always been important to Korda, the relationship with the public is always something we look to build stronger and these shows are a great way to do so. Whether you want to buy or just to say hello, the shows are always worth a visit, and we will be at them all.

I’m sure that some of you reading this will have some face-to-face contact the Korda staff during the show season but for all that don’t, get yourself out fishing, it’s a beautiful time to go.
