Korda backed ace, Darrell Peck is running a one off, seven day coaching course at French super-water, Gigantica.
A statement on the Korda website explained: "Darrell has been coaching anglers for several years now, and aims the experience to be a more relaxed but also more advanced version of what he does day to day in the UK.
Gigantica will at that time have at least one 80 pounder, plus at least two 70's, twelve 60's, twenty five 50's and another seventy 40's, plus hundreds of back up fish. There will be just seven anglers on the 35 acre complex giving anglers five acres of water each! The lake has been fishing its head off this summer, with far less weed than usual and a late spawning - meaning that the venue is expected to fish better than ever through the winter.
The trip is limited to six anglers, plus Darren, who will draw for their pegs on arrival. Once the draw has been done Darrell will help you choose your spots in the swim based on your capabilities and where the bites have been coming from. The Gigantica bailiffs make detailed records of all bite spots so you are straight on them Saturday night!
Because you have seven days and nights to pick his brains, your level of knowledge and competence will grow rapidly, catapulting you forward many seasons in one week.
Aside from being a great coach, Darrell is a highly social and charismatic guy with many stories to tell so you are guaranteed to have a great week whatever happens.
The Gigantica staff will be looking after you with three hot meals a day, one eaten in the lodge together and two delivered to your swim at breakfast and early evening maximising the time your rods can be in the water. Tea and coffee will be on tap from dawn till dusk and the fridge is always full with beers.
There are high quality showers and toilets on site plus all the bait and tackle you will need should you be under gunned and simply run out during your stay.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for only six lucky anglers, and places are expected to sell out fast.
The cost of a fully catered week at that time is £495, and only £100 is being added for a full weeks tuition from Darrell, so that's £595 in total plus your travel of course. The week starts at 12noon on Saturday 9th November, Darrell will already be plotted up in a central swim so he can access all six anglers with ease, meaning his time will be in your swim not his own. Some of the training will be one to one others as a group, he'll just go with the flow.
Finally if you do catch a whacker you will be guaranteed amazing shots and publication on both the Gigantica and Korda web sites.
All in all an amazing opportunity for a few lucky guys."
