Amazing line-up of stars at Britain's biggest angling shows!

Team Korda have some really special treats lined up for you at angling shows over the next couple of weekends, and you can’t afford to miss out!

The Big One, the UK’s largest fishing show, at Farnborough International on March 19 and 20 is going to be particularly special, as Korda has its own 10m long by 2m wide fish tank which will contain a variety of species, including carp.

Not only can you watch the fish, but there will be demonstrations showing how they react to various rigs and bait – although obviously the fish won't end up getting hooked! – and experts from Team Korda will be on hand to talk you through exactly what the fish are doing, and how to incorporate that knowledge into your own fishing to get more bites!

As if that wasn’t enough, we also have our own theatre where some of the angling stars associated with Korda will be giving talks throughout both days.

The line-up of those attending includes Danny Fairbrass, Ali Hamidi, Tom Dove, Dave Levy, Darrell Peck, Neil Spooner, James Turner, Richard Stewart, Garth Ethelstone, plus many more!

The full range of Korda tackle will be on display on Stand 196, and there is a demonstration area where you can see exactly how to get the best out of it and how to tie some of the rigs favoured by those involved with Team Korda, and which have helped them put some monsters on the bank!

Tickets can be purchased online, costing £10 for adults, £6 concessions, £5 for a half-day after 1pm, or £15 for both days, or are available on the door at an extra charge. Go to: www.fishfacepromotions.co.uk

If you can’t make it along to Farnborough, you still have a chance to meet the team the weekend before, as they will be attending the 2016 Carpin’ On Show at Five Lakes Crowne Plaza hotel, Essex, the previous weekend, on March 12 and 13, the fifteenth year the show has been running!

Korda-backed carp catching machine Darrell Peck will be appearing on the main stage on Sunday from 11.15am-12.00pm to talk about his experiences of tackling large public waters in Europe, plus will be revealing some of his plans for the coming year, which includes a hectic filming schedule shooting some exciting new shows! He will also be putting in an appearance at the Rig and Bait clinic on both days (11.30am-12pm on Saturday, and 1.30-2pm on Sunday), where he will be talking about his favourite rigs and the best situations to use them in.

Don’t miss the chance to come along and see the presenters of The Big Fish Off, Ali Hamidi and Dean Macey, who will be on hand to chat and sign autographs, as well as appearing on stage on both days (12.15-1pm Saturday, and 1.15-2pm on Sunday) to unveil some teasers of what you have to look forward to in the forthcoming second series of the ITV hit series, which is coming to your screens in April. Plus they will be revealing some of what goes on behind the scenes during the making of these shows, and you might even bump into one or two stars from the previous and forthcoming series’ who are keen carp anglers themselves!

Korda can be found on stand 133, near the main stage, and will be showing off the full range of products, with plenty of big names on hand to show you exactly how they like to use them! You can come along and meet Ali Hamidi, Damian Clarke, Darrell Peck, Neil Spooner, Tom Dove, plus many more!

You can either pay at the door, or book your ticket online, priced at £10.45, or £15.45 for both days, and it’s free for under-12s. Go to: www.carpinon.co.uk
