THE Midlands Coarse and Carp Spectacular in Coventry attracted a massive show audience and Angler’s Mail rounds up all the best bits in the new issue (on sale Tuesday, February 26).

Below are some videos shot by roving reporter Adam Rayner at the event, held at the Ricoh Arena, home to  Coventry City FC’s football ground.

This free-entry show came just before The Big One show at Farnborough and a run of other fishing tackle shows (click here for 2013 carp fishing show dates).

Traders at Coventry reported big interest in the new releases, and also in products already available and sold by top dealers such as Eric’s Angling Centre (pictured below).

If you think being a tackle business player is as cool as being a rap star, well, you might just be right. In the midst of a mad bargain-selling frenzy, Sam Anderson stops for a moment to pose with his tatts, guns and colleagues Lauren and Nicole.
