Korda Carpfest is back, better than ever. The action-packed two-day event that proved so popular when first run in 2005 at Thorpe Lea, is now coming to a lake near you! That’s right, Carpfest is hitting the road and bringing all the fun of the ‘Fest to 10 venues between now and September. The lakes at each venue will be hosting fishing demonstrations all day long. We want you to be able to stand with Darrell Peck, Ali Hamidi or Tom Dove as they try to catch carp and pick their brains on anything you wish. Who knows, you might even be able to play a carp on their rods if the carp gods are smiling that day!
It’s all starting on the April 29th at Manor Farm Fishery near Biggleswade in Bedfordshire. If you want a rundown on what you can expect from Carpfest then you can check out the film that's linked on this page or go to the Carpfest films in Korda On Sky in the Movies section of this very website. Just as before, you’ll find a selection of Team Korda anglers at each event and this time we’re bringing our friends from Daiwa, Trakker, Delkim and Mainline Baits with us to join the fun.
Perhaps most importantly, entry to a Carpfest event is completely FREE of charge. Once in, you’ll find Marquees housing each of the companies attending, where you’ll be able to browse brand-new products and get advice on exactly how to use them from people who design the gear. You’ll certainly be able to cast with some of the latest Daiwa rods and reels and see the cream of Trakker shelters set up for your inspection.
Hot food will be available at each show.
We expect this run of Carpfest events to be really popular and grow year on year. Check the list below and make a date to attend the buzz event of 2011…
