As the title says we have had a film crew here at edenslakes this week doing some footage which consists of mike salisbury and melvin cox,both known in there own rights in the uk,melvin for his bait firm A M bait services and for being a level 2 angling coach,and carp fisherman from the mid 80’s and Mike is a fully qualified Level 2 Angling Coach, and has been fishing for over 25 years. a member of the Professional Anglers Association. As well as the coaching, his principal involvement in angling has been the production of videos, the first of which was the official World Carp Classic event video in 2001. I was also responsible for the production of the WCC 2003 and 2009 videos Since 2010 angling school and of course for his film work and his links with nash tackle etc….,he has worked and done several features for some well known fisheries over the years, a vibrant, up-and-coming Youtube channel called “Angling Coach TV”, which is gradually increasing in popularity. On there you will find his WCC videos, lake promo videos and a few surprising extras.and he also produces content for Nash TV.
