I’ve just been sent two Dvd’s by the lovely Steve Lockett today (both from the V2V stable) and I’ve just finished watching them both. I must confess I haven’t seen an instructional Dvd for a while (in fact the last time I watched one I think it was on VHS!). The two titles Steve sent me were:
Will Raison – Silvers On The Pole – Part 3 Canal Roach On Breadpunch
Neil Machin – Baggin’ Carp on Commercial Canals and Snake Lakes
|Two cracking titles from V2V
Now I wasn’t really sure what to expect apart from seeing a well known name bagging up on each method and yes, there was plenty of that but oh so much more!
These Dvd’s cover everything from preparing bait and setting up rigs beforehand to feeding and when to switch lines etc. I particularly liked the shots to show what happens to the various baits underwater and also the use of multi cameras so you can actually watch the float go under – exciting stuff!
Each Dvd is packed with info and there are even rig diagrams and venue info.
Now obviously neither Will or Neil are professional actors but both looked comfortable in front of the cameras and the depth of knowledge they both have is second to none. Predictably there is a fair bit of product promotion for their respective sponsors (Daiwa and Garbolino) but that was only to be expected.
I’ve learned loads and can certainly see me using the snake lake tips at Summerhayes and it’s got me thinking about using punch on the Isle when it’s cold and clear.
I think I’ll definitely be checking out some other titles in the range, have a look yourselves at www.V2Vangling.co.uk
