I have to wake up, unzip my bag, slip some boots on, go down several uneven steps then pick my rod up. All this whilst half asleep.
With the best will in the world that is not going to happen in 10 seconds with my dodgy back and arthritic knees!!
It makes me laugh when people say "I wake up at the first beep" how do they know?

I have found that once you get in a syndicate you build a CV if you like, you get a reputation. People know people who know people.
The secret of it is behave yourself and make sure the rep you get is good.
I've only fished syndicates for over 10 years.

As nice as those videos on those old estate lakes are, I like to watch a video of a well trodden day ticket fishery where the banks are that worn the grass is non existent and the earth exposed is as hard as concrete also the swims are that close that you can here the next guys farts and with that many lights on at night it feels like Blackpool in October then when they get a take you can marvel how the poor carp being landed has picked a bait up with only half a face even better when there videoing equipment is that poor you cannot hear them above the wind blowing now that's real fishing that takes a special kind of angler to take the time to film it an upload to youtube for our viewing pleasure, grass roots that's where it's at and usually a crate of cider.

And it takes him at least 10 seconds to get to his rod after the initial pick up by the fish.

Ten seconds..! There were times I witnessed an angler take ten minutes to hit a run, so far away from his rods was he.

I would suggest that most long session anglers take anything up to a couple of minutes to hit a run in the early hours of the morning if they are sparko in the bag..

Interesting one that. Iíve spent many an hour thinking how much Iíd love a job in angling. then I realise that actually I wouldnít. I fish cos I want to, Iíd hate to have to fish cos I had to. I think working for a manufacturer in the background, yeah fine, but having a public persona that has to be maintained isnít for me.

Martin is sound, top bloke and comes across well. He rubs shoulders with Chris tarrant and they are in a small group of lads who have access to lakes I can only dream about. Fair play to him I say and he is a brilliant angler. Iíd like his job

Your right ,old fashioned manners go along way , so does being dressed smartly along with some references from other land owners , if possible , or a letter of introduction from someone of standing , if you have a trade you can barter with , also if it's keepered , don't go over the keepers head , they can take that personally , a good bottle of malt will probably smooth that over though lol

Perhaps heís just a nice chap and lake owners know he will be respectful of the place. I think good old fashioned manners still go a long way these days.

On the odd occasion Iíve met him at shows he seems a likeable enough bloke. That said itís handy to have access to free tackle and bait to sweeten the deal!!

IMHO It's not what you know, it's who you know, and treating these people, and their friends nicely to keep them on side for a chance of a dabble on their venue/s

**** what the EA say , not there fish or there water lol
It's no big deal ,taking ten seconds , he's not snag fishing ,and he has the use of a boat , just enjoy it for what it is, without picking the bones out of it

Not aimed at anyone in particular

I'd definitely say that he is too far from his rod. Even though the vast majority of us (myself included) will venture further away from our rods than the EA rules allow, I don't think that it sets a great example to those with little or know experience as to when it is excusable to wander a little.
I would add that IMO, being as it's weedy, I doubt that it would have made any difference if he been sat right next to the rods.

On the very 1st run, he isn't carrying a landing net.
And it takes him at least 10 seconds to get to his rod after the initial pick up by the fish.
I personally think that is too long. And he says somewhere in the video that he is only using one rod.
He could have sat closer to the jetty and still been hidden by the reeds.
I don't fish during the night because I can't trust myself to "come to" and get to my rods in time. But I reckon even I could beat 10 seconds in the dead of the night, let alone when I'm wide awake and alert at first light.

One of the drone shots shows a rod on 2 pegs next to each other.
I watched it last night but can't buy into him as a presente anymore, he's changed speed from his earlier stuff and he was laid back, back then, just a bit slow for me.
