    just found your site, as an avid carp angler along with my son I was very surprised at the amount of information on your site. But there is a problem? how do we get to look at the videos? is this site for trade only, or doe’s the public need to get a log in account with you.
    Could you please explain what I must do to gain entry to your very good site.
    Many Thanks
