Ali has Korda running through his veins. He joined the company in 2005 after enjoying a spectacular trajectory in TV and marketing. Prior to moving up to Cheshire in 1998, he began his carp-fishing journey in Colchester on the banks of local gravel pits and Layer Pits, a venue that Ali still loves to visit today.

Today he's Korda's marketing guru, managing the marketing that the company is renowned for. He heads up a growing department that spans both print and digital media as well as driving Korda events like the Carp Academy and filming for huge projects like The Big Fish Off, Masterclass and Thinking Tackle.

With limited time, He prides himself on his tactical approach and his ability to winkle out a fish at any given opportunity. He has banked carp to over 40lb in the UK and 70lb abroad. He’s a real carping fanatic and always fishes with a smile. He’ll go out of his way to help any angler of any ability to bank an extra carp or two, so if you’re ever at the same venue have the kettle on as he’s bound to come round for a cup of tea!
