Carl and Alex

These brothers from Sussex, Carl and Alex have been fishing since 2005 and making angling films since 2010. They are part of a new generation of web-based fishing filmmakers and have quickly developed a strong fanbase.

Although drawn to carp fishing, they are true allrounders and enjoy using a wide range of techniques to target different species. The brothers both have a passion for filmmaking, the outdoors and wildlife in general, and their enthusiasm shines through in their films.

FishingTV is pleased to be able to make a selection of their favourite videos available to members for free.

Carl and Alex have a mission: to land a truly big pike. Over the course of the winter they focus all their efforts on landing a pike over the magical 20lb mark, putting in the hours and the miles on several different waters, using a variety of tactics and techniques including dead baits and lures.

Alex has left Carl at home and he's taking advantage of a change in the weather to sneak in a quick session on a local pond, while trying to catch up on some work. He gets a couple of welcome interruptions, and shares a couple of recent captures from the same water.

Carl and Alex head to one of the most famous rivers in England, the River Test. This chalkstream is famous for its 'gin-clear' waters and today's quarry - grayling. The lady of the stream is one of the UK's most beautiful fish, and where there's one, there's often a few.
video
Carl and Alex head to a new water to see what surprises the crystal clear waters can deliver - the target species are perch and dropshotting is the tactic, but when they stop biting, the lads head to a nearby canal to see what that holds - the results are somewhat unexpected!

Back to the River Wye, and this time Carl and Alex have their old man with them. Believe it or not he's never caught a fish before... can he break that duck on this trip? 
video
The lads are off on holiday, this time to the Canary Islands to a lake high in the mountains, in search of enormous carp. Can they fool one of the lake's monster fish?

Welcome to our biggest carp fishing challenge yet, the Reservoir Diaries. We first started these diaries back in late September 2014, but it was only Spring 2015 when we finally started catching carp consistently. In this video we show all the bait, rigs, tactics and locations we fished, to catch some of the best carp we have ever caught.

After the success of Reservoir Diaries, the lads are heading back to an enormous reservoir to see if they can’t capture a big scaly mirror carp that they’re sure the 300 acre lake holds.

But also Brendan and Austin discovered what English carp fishing has to offer when they visited the UK and caught many fish, including some lovely scaly mirrors. An amazing adventure and one we will never forget! Hope you enjoy the video!
