Fishing for carp in any lake, river or pond is special, but when we discovered a massive reservoir close to home we just had to find out what fish lived in there. Watch part 1: In this video we set ourselves the challenge of catching an individual big mirror.

Our channel, Carl and Alex Fishing was launched in 2013. Our aim was to inspire people to go fishing, because at the time we did not have many friends who fished. Over the years we have filmed carp fishing, coarse fishing, fly fishing and even a bit of sea angling. We do not earn money from making these videos, in fact it costs us quite a lot to make each film. Because of this we don’t upload as regularly as other YouTubers as we both work full time, however we hope you still enjoy watching our films and maybe a few of you are inspired to get out and catch some fish.

  1. You guys inspired me so much to start carp fishing

  2. What ounce leads do you guys use

  3. You guys are so inspiring.

  4. Quite honestly chaps. One of the best fishing videos I've watched. Would love the opportunity to fish with you guys

    • All these guys videos are worth watching, I have enjoyed them all.
      There are some " totally awful " fishing videos on YouTube with guys mishandling fish, constantly turning to natter at the camera when they have a fish hooked, not having landing nets in the swim etc etc, just showing bad angling
      Carl and Alex know what they are doing, they respect the fish and handle them properly and their enthusiasm when they land a " big un " is just great.

      Well done lads you are a credit to angling, ( and your parents ), and your film making is just top notch!
