Carp Wars 2 is edging towards a thrilling finale as episode 11 hits Sky Sports and FishingTV from today [February 8].
Thanks to the guys at FishingTV we've had a sneak peek at this week's episode, filmed at Valley Lake on the Fryerning complex and featuring Ian Russell and Dave Levy.
DON’T WORRY, WE WON’T REVEAL ANY SPOILERS.
Here are a few things to watch out for in this episode, plus a great tactics video from Mr Russell.
1 Ian and Dave bring the bantz...
These two cheeky south-east geezers don't need a second invitation to start taking the mick out of each other.
Where Dave leads, Ian follows...
2 Dave doesn't need human friends anyway
A wayward racing pigeon drops in to give Dave some company
3 They're both barking up the same tree
Despite fishing opposite banks, both Dave and Ian end up fishing towards the same feature.
5 Dave gets tactical
Dave's use of a baiting pole to target a far-margin feature is a great example of how these devices can be deployed.
6 Ian turns impressionist
Obviously this isn't a screengrab from this episode, but many of you will recognise the legend that is Derek 'The Don' Ritchie, and on two occasions during this show Ian does a frankly brilliant impression of him. Keeeeerrrr'mon!
7 Mr Russell admits a flaw in his personality
8 Oh yeah, there are also some fish in this one...
Valley isn't an easy water, but this pair do get among the fish. And not just carp...
9 And some tactical nuggets...
Tightening down to your lead is about finesse, and Dave shows a simple but effective way to do it...
WATCH: Ian's corn rig
Carp Wars episode 11 can be seen on Sky Sports Arena at 4.30pm today [8/2/18].
It will then be available to watch via the FishingTV apps and from FishingTV.com from Friday February 9.
