Those of you who don’t have Sky will be delighted to know that Korda’s Thinking Tackle Season Six is being launched on DVD this week.
The blockbuster carp-angling show has been airing on Sky Sports this autumn to great acclaim. It seems that the show keeps on getting better and better and this day-ticket focused series sets a new benchmark for carp TV.
Season Six pits the cream of Korda’s carping talent against some of the most pressured carp in the country and those ingredients combine to give us some of the most compelling fishing footage ever filmed.
The nine shows contain some unbelievable hauling, and the personalities involved include Simon Scott, Darrell Peck, Adam Penning, Gaz Fareham, Ali Hamidi, Danny Fairbrass and Jake Wildbore.
Venues also covered include Walthamstow, Manor Farm, Farlows, Sandhurst, The Blue Pool and Yateley Pads Lake.
As usual, all the tactics that the lads used to bank a succession of whackers are faithfully recorded and presented for all to see.
