***CARP FISHING TV *** The Challenge Episode 17 “Back In The Day”

In this episode of the Challenge Mark has to use end tackle, baits and rigs he would have used in the late 80’s/early 90’s when he first started carp fishing. Would the primitive tackle halt his progress in episode 17 or will he achieve his first pass in over 9 months.

  1. I'm looking into making my own boilies this year, any chance you could share the recipe for those tutti fruti boilies, I like the look of them, cheers great vid.

  2. Must take ages to load the barrow and get set up when you have to do it in slow-mo fella 😎

  3. Epic fail Mark! I'm affraid the Tutti Fruti had to be frozen and unfrozen about 30 times so they became a sticky mess. So not Carpy! Oh and the lack of Monkey climbers fitted with starlights speaks volumes!

  4. Well in Mark congrats on smashing the challenge & my favourite one by far. It brought back so many memories for an old school 90's carper. Thanks to Harry and the voters too, great entertainment lads 😉

  5. Can anyone tell me who the artist of the sound track is around 1.07.18

  6. Song from 30 min??

  7. Northumberland Carper

    best one so far, because it brings so many memories back. itv sign them up…………..plz

  8. is this a repeat mark

  9. Smokey Canopy outdoors

    Great stuff guys.

  10. Still using one of those bivvys. Got it 2nd hand in the mid 90s, even got the inner anti condensation skin thing they are bringing back! Awesome rib design why did it get changed!

    • Still got mini microns as spares too, ones gone a bit quiet though I'm thinking of sending it back to Fox, better check it's still under guarantee though!

  11. Great vid, just goes to show Des Taylor knew a good swim when he saw one!

    Seriously though leads on to the following clear conclusion: there have been no significant advances in carp tackle and techniques for 25 years.

    Ok make it 20 then you take in the grange (first widely used "active" bait? – red fishmeals where already around 25yrs ago) and the hinged stiif rig. Game over carp fishing was optimised 20 years ago!

  12. Summit Detailing

    Great episode chaps, shame you didn't use period correct rods/reels to match the rod pod and terminal tackle arrangement.
    Some lol comedy moments.
    Look forward to the next one.
    cheers

  13. Another great video and a great lake which might not be much longer once hs2 goest straight throught it

  14. I had them bite alarms! Awesome

  15. One of my fav episodes for sure 🙂 Thanks!

  16. Great episode, I've still got des' cuttle mill video lying round somewhere👍 i still use an original kjb pod and monkey climbers from 1990 and my tackle box still contains some of the bits that came out of that plastic bag😂😂😂

  17. Julian Villasante

    absolutely Brilliant ! I too started in the late 80's and the cuttle mill Des Taylor bought it flooding back!! (must be a simillar age…43yrs)
    always look forward to you videos blogs etc …great stuff as always…and tutti fruttie doing there thing 👍

  18. Benjamin Sheppard

    Love these videos. You seem to really enjoy your fishing and it’s great to see a carp angler not taking himself so seriously !

  19. God I love the challenge

  20. 4 Classic 1990's tackle items missing 'The Shakespeare green cushion top tackle box' 'The Red plastic disgorger behind the ear' 'The Strawberry boilie – gob stopper style' & 'The cutting edge black hair rig tie machine'

  21. Well that has been one of the best things I have seen for a while, present company accepted. Took me back years to that time stripped Argos sunloungers and dodgy sleeping bags. On a rainy Sunday that has proper cheered me up, and just reinforces that you don't need all this stuff we have today, although it makes thinks easier. Proper carping and you can see how much it meant by your faces coupled with an iconic water.
