Ali Hamidi launches new book!

Korda’s Ali Hamidi has announced the launch of his second book, The Carpers' High, and copies are available to pre-order now with the first 2,500 signed by Ali himself.

Veering away from the usual carp angling book format, The Carpers' High is an advanced tactical, tips manual and story book all rolled into one, along with exclusive behind-the-scenes stories covering the Korda marketing chief’s life in carp angling.

Starting with Ali’s childhood angling exploits, the book then focuses on the author’s experiences since joining Korda in 2005 – an era which saw Thinking Tackle, Underwater 7 and 8 DVDs, The Big Fish Off and many other high-profile angling projects coming to fruition. This book contains the stories behind his exploits with lots of great anecdotes and interesting revelations.

Covering locations as diverse as Paris, Japan, Turkey and even Ockendon, the 400-page tome also offers tactical insights garnered from Ali’s pursuit of some of the country’s most impressive carp including rig diagrams and technical information never revealed before.

To compliment Ali’s own writing, he’s also called upon his friends in the industry to contribute chapters covering their own extraordinary angling achievements with Neil Spooner’s capture of Lakeland’s Single Scale and Richard Lofthouse’s Manor sessions of particular interest. The book also covers some of Ali’s finest captures with behind-the-scenes stories and amazing tales from a decade of Korda shoots and big fish angling across Europe.

But, above all, The Carpers High is a book written to inspire and entertain the average angler with plenty of humour, funny stories and observations from the fascinating world of carp fishing from one of the real characters of the sport. It's the perfect Christmas present for any keen angler.
