Graduation day at Korda Carp Academy

Thirty young carp fanatics graduated from this year’s Korda Carp Academy at Manor Farm in Bedfordshire.

The three-day course saw the likes of top anglers Ali Hamidi and Danny Fairbrass (pictured) team up with the youngsters to help smash their personal bests.

Korda boss Danny said: “The attitude of all the kids has been brilliant – the amount they’ve learnt has been fantastic and the instructors, as always, have given it their all 24 hours a day.”

Max Andrew, who banked three pbs from Damsel Lake under the tuition of Richard Stewart, said:

“I can’t wait to go fishing again and put all I’ve learnt into practice. All the instructors have been absolutely brilliant and I’ve had a great time – thank you.”
