Ed is a lifelong trout fisherman, having started fishing at the age of 7. Having worked in the field of digital media for many years he left behind the corporate world to persue his own ventures. Naturally these involved fishing.

His wealth of contacts in the fishing industry around the world and experience of producing world-class fishing content make him ideally placed to spearhead the World Fishing Day project, bringing together technology partners, filming teams and professional anglers to create something unique.

Once the day rolls around Ed will be in the studio helping to decide which live feed to broadcast to the audience.

Paul Cooper: Director of Photography - FishingTV

Paul started out as a camera-man working on live sporting events, including poker, golf and cricket. His lifelong passion for carp fishing led him to follow a career path that took him into that niche and eventually into a job at FishingTV.

It was here that he developed the idea for the popular carp fishing TV show Carp Wars, which he has gone on to direct two series of. All of this experience and passion mean that Paul is another ideal person to drive the live broadcast.
