Watch Underwater 8 online for free!

Underwater 8 is finally being released online and for FREE. This Thursday, 9th August at 8.00pm, you will be able to watch the entire DVD in full HD for the first time on YouTube and Korda.co.uk.

Underwater 8 has almost three hours of footage showing you exactly how the carp react to the various things that top anglers such as Danny Fairbrass, Ali Hamidi and Tom Dove try to tempt them, as well as gaining a unique insight into the thought processes behind their own fishing and how they approach things.

Some of the rigs and tactics may well now be viewed as being a bit out of date, but plenty of what is shown is still very effective even today, and you can also learn a lot by viewing the way in which the carp act, and react.

Underwater 8 had a lot to live up to, as in Underwater 7, Danny landed the lakes’ largest resident, the stunning mirror known as The Big Plated. He then lets Ali and Tom take over the spot and they enjoy some great action, as well as plenty of frustration at times, before he returns and ends up trying one of Elliott Gray’s rigs to tempt another very special fish!

This was the first episode where they tried Solidz PVA bags and watched the reaction to them, and the results were very interesting. It was a similar story when they tried pop-ups on this session, which have always been regarded as a bit of a ‘big fish’ method. The effectiveness of the Goo, almond in particular, is also shown compared to a plain hookbait. The footage taken on these shoots is the reason why Ali and Tom use GOO in all elements of their fishing, even all these years later.

The Underwater series is a unique insight into the world in which our quarry live and how they behave, and it is a real eye-opener seeing just how often fish are on and around the baited spot, yet don’t slip up! The frustrations and disappointment as you watch the guys being “mugged off” by several fish is edge of your seat viewing that highlights some amazing insight into what actually happens when carp fishing.
