MORE fisheries now hold free-entry open days, inviting manufacturers along. They’re usually great fun – with the chance to fish or at least watch good anglers fishing, see and play with latest gear, and chat to experts.

Our latest Angler’s Mail magazine reveals what was shown at the beautiful mature Birds Green Fishery, near Ongar, Essex where top carp firms Korda, Fox and Nash were amongst those supporting.

It was also the event where newcomers Taska made their public debut, with some quality but well priced kit.

We sent Adam Rayner along to investigate and here are two exclusive videos (BELOW) from the weekend.

The first shows some live carp action, and the second a chat with the well-stocked tackle shop on site.
