seen a video of Darrell Peck out in a boat without a life jacket, think it was the French pit one, but it was only once in the film, he wore one on every other occasion. he clearly just forgot in the rush to get in it. I've never fished from/with a boat but imagine its easily done at times.

can only assume that they have just forgotten on that occasion, and as said before, a short video explaining the dangers etc and that they had forgotten would be a good thing. and some easy content for them to make

Watched bits and bobs of the stuff they've done and generally enjoyed it. Watched one earlier that I presume is very recent. "Shark fishing" my arse. Taking the piss to put that in film on a public platform

A statement would be the best answer apologising and warning people of the dangers. Even a short video admitting their error of judgement.

Spot on. Just because Carl n Alex are genuinely lovely lads does not exempt them from drowning. A life jacket should always be worn in a boat.

I can put another perspective on this
I grew up sea fishing living literally across the road from a beach
Google Shoreham Lighthouse and I lived opposite !
1979 my dad bought me 14ft boat with a Seagull outboard, a small anchor and a set of oars
I used to drag the boat across the beach at 14 years old and go about 2 miles out fishing without a care in the world and without any life jacket .... Totally wrong but my old man was not big on risk assessments to be honest
It seems we live in a world were everyones looking to be offended
If they was doing this mid Jan then jump on them but FFS ..... If they cant get out a lake in mid summer then we are ruined ...... Whats next - everyone laying in a bivvy with an auto inflating life jacket on in case they fall in when they get a run at 3 oclcok in the morning
Give the lads a break ...

Alan Blair always comes across as a really decent guy. Don't know if you never saw it or heard about it, the story of when Gary Bayes set Alan up on the tidal stretch of the Chelmer. Always makes me laugh thinking about Alan waking up in the morning with all his tackle bobbing about in the water as it had risen so much

I stumbled across their stuff years ago and I've watched their content since, back then they were a couple of young lads with an obvious passion for angling and vlogging their fishing exploits way back before they were anything to do with any tackle manufacturers, just a couple of young lads enjoying their fishing and putting their content out there even though it was a bit Heath Robinson at the start, it was refreshing to watch their enthusiasm.

One of their first vlogs I watched they were catching loads of little bits on a French fishing holiday with their parents getting excited like all young kids do just happy to be catching anything, I doubt they had hardly learned to ride a pushbike by then and now they've moved out of home both made what looks like a half reasonable career out of something they had a genuine passion for they've fished all over had some epic fishing in their short lifetimes and fair play to them if they enjoy doing it I wish them all the success, they have honed their skills at both fishing and videography got picked up by two of the largest carp tackle brands not just in this Country but all over Europe, that's the path they chose to walk I would say best of luck to them.

The life Jacket thing I agree with but you can watch a thousand fishing videos and see mistakes in them by anglers who have been at it a lot longer and still at it putting content out just like it, does not make it right I know but it still gets put out there point it out yes but don't condemn them for for it.

Lol, wtf is all that about anyways? Who's that borning c**t who's always rocking up on sticky baits video's? My word, that guy is the most boring human ever to walk the earth. As soon as he opens his chops, I'm like...off. next video.

I personally think they are good for angling they bring a balance to the tattoo chavs , face pubes wannabes .

The life jacket concerns are very valid. I remember getting the call about Selleck and Dunn on Savay yearís ago..... Devastated !!!! A life jacket would of saved their lives.

Once again the "jealousy" card comes out.

Jealous of what? No-one seems to be able to provide a decent answer to this.

If you want to live in the Truman show, with your brother and his Mrs under the same roof, good luck to you. I doubt we'll see much of the footage whereby one of them spent four days on a lake for one small mirror. That is four days of zero content, zero views, zero pence in the coffers. As much as they must love the fishing, too many of them will hurt, hence the need in a lot of their videos to catch quantity over quality.

If you're happy to lose four days wages to blank your nads off and have absolutely nothing to show for it, then fair enough. The vast majority of us though are quite content with doing overnighters and catching a few nice ones along the way. The thought of fishing with a camera lens constantly in my face, or having to walk into a swim four times to get the right in focus shot of a stinging nettle?....you can keep it.

I enjoy their content, and have done so for a few years now. Would I want their life over my own? No chance. I'm quite happy with the mortgage, wife, 2.4 children and a well paid role which affords me to buy what I want and go fishing when I want, not because I have to.

Not wanting to buck the trend just for the sakes of it, here goes

I've never found these to guys one bit interesting, not a jot. If I see their stuff come up on YouTube I just skip past it. They bore me to tears. Clearly they've got media savvy and they've done well because of it, as anglers? Nah. No thanks. Dull, dull and more dull. Could it be that I'm not down wid da yoot?

I wish them all the best, I sincerely mean that.

. . .lol Neil you are getting old . . . like some of the rest of us!

To be fair I get your point in terms of annoying 'named' or 'consultant' anglers but you need to at least have a gander at these two lads as IMO they are a breath of fresh air given the rest of the total carp BS out there.

Not only have they paved their own way (from boyhood) by simply recording their exploits and sharing it digitally (this is what all kids do these days by the way) but they're naturally talented, well spoken and inoffensive . . . their content and the way its produced is top notch in terms of visual quality and they capture the 'spirit' of fishing incredibly well.

Its no surprise that Korda have got their teeth into them - they are masters of marketing in this arena and the future of carping needs kids like this as without them it will be full of old codgers if its not already . . .! As others have said - hopefully they'll keep it real and wont sell out too quick . . good luck to them both I say - if you can fish and get paid to do it at such a young age then you're more successful than most of us . . !

Seems if you donít blow smoke up there arse they donít like it. Watched the last video and enjoyed it. Simply commented in a polite manor that life jackets should be worn. Any comments just get deleted. Pathetic really. I could understand if I was rude and abusive. Idiots going out in a weedy lake with no jackets, any lake for that matter

two very nice and very well brought up lads. They make really good films and do not ask for freebies or handouts. For that reason alone i know they will do well and succeed in fishing. Hats off to the lads and keep up the good work. Some people on this forum need a wedgie from every other member..........they are just keen young lads like i was at that age. Leave them be

Decided to have a watch last night, and yes pretty enjoyable, no bling, get int net, bosh or dancinging about, buy this it works, or use this rig and bait combined with this hoody and chair, just two mates going fishing. As pointed out earlier their Sirens have been swapped for the new Delks, but I did see they are still using their old Scopes and reels, no DF rods in sight, yey lol. Good luck to them, lets hope they keep their feet on the ground.

Yet again, a perfectly good thread/topic that gets off track thanks to a couple of idiots posting unpleasant personal comments. Carl and Alex have built up a remarkable portfolio of films etc through hard work,determination and YES..a big dollop of help from Nash and now Korda. If their films dont interest you..dont watch..if their appearance offends..DONT WATCH...simples Im sure they wish they didnt have these medical conditions..I very much doubt they asked for them. If you have nothing constructive to say ..well I'll leave the rest to your imagination. Oh and Dave..I do pity your Grandson

I'm not aware of these lads but fair play if they are doing well and not doing other stereotypical teenage stuff like burning Bus stops and killing nuns...

It did strike me that perhaps I should get Korda to sponsor me. I don't own any of their gear; so I could film myself blanking and they could then say it's all because of my lack of their stuff. Genius.

I didn't realise the carp world was so PC. After some of the wind ups you guys bragged about, one simple 9iss take about acne and it's like I used the 'N' word to a nun. What's the matter, too cold to go fishing ?

I haven't dissed their work but I do think it's too much about self promotion and that's not for me. That's all. Now run along and squeeze your spots.

And yes, when my grandson gets acne he'll probably be called pizza face. If he crumples and get's his mates to slag me off I'll just tell him to 'man up' and get on with it.

u tubing is the way of the world now love it or hate it. that's the way it is, people are making a very good living from posting videos on u tube and getting sponsored to do it.

personally I have no interest in filming anything I do in fishing. I have watched some videos and just think it must take hours to put together, for example a shot of someone pushing a barrow past the camera, first they would have to set the camera up, then walk past it then go back and collect?

if they have the time to do that, then spend hours editing it all good luck to you.

there are 100's of people making videos on u tube about fishing, some are a good watch a lot I have seen are boring as hell, 5 mins of the journey to the lake, 10 mins of setting ect ect

everyone now a days want to make a living from fishing, in reality there are still very few anglers that are full time and get paid to do it.

I'm looking forward to watching a few.

Fair play to them I say. A couple of youngsters getting off their backsides and doing something constructive should be encouraged.

Doing video documentaries takes a lot of time and effort. I did a video diary a few years ago of an 8 day trip up Kilimanjaro. It took loads of effort during the trip and even more effort to edit when I got home.

I've thought about doing them for fishing but decided against it. I go fishing to relax mainly, taking stills, cut away shots and all that stuff takes the relaxation away for me.

Me? I'm gorgeous mate.

If you want to be a known angler you have to promote yourself, it's all voluntary and easy to do. For a while I was well know in the barbel world but backed away from it all as I want to fish for myself and not to provide pictures for a sponsor.

These kids seem decent enough - despite the pizza faces - and present a positive attitude to the sport. I have no doubt they will go far but only because they have hyped themselves. But trust me, the true good angler is often passed on the bank unrecognised.

They are lovely lads, both of them. Good all around anglers too. Not just carp. They caught a few fish on our S2's just before before they joined Nash (or it might have been just after they started there). Very polite and well mannered in any of my dealings/conversations with them.

Good luck to them.

Just Googled them. Now if you'd said the acne boys I'd have caught on more quickly.

As for filming everything you do and becoming 'known' for it - good luck to them....... the egotistical little so and so's. Whatever happened to 'be quiet and go a angling'? Too many people shouting about themselves nowadays.

Now where's the emoji for grumpy old git.

Thank you Boycie for correctly explaining my post.

@ Tranter11 - you read the words in the right order but unfortunately didnít understand the context.

@ Stevio-Hants - no Iím not drawing attention to myself ( ironically totally the opposite) but using 2 personal examples how most of us just live and exist in total obscurity quite happily.

I posted on the thread due the title - Alex and Carl, with no other explanation given. I had no idea who they were so I read the thread and concluded that they were some anglers of YouTube type fame. Now without wishing to offend the OP, I came to the conclusion that it was being assumed that we all automatically know who these two are and in my case it wasnít the case. So I made my post in this context.

You will notice that I wished them well as I have no malice towards them as I donít know them, although Iím not keen on all the carp media these days ( personal view and choice) and I also stated that. I then gave two personal examples of being totally under the radar and happy to be so.

Everyone happy

I think he's suggesting that every man & his dog seems to have an involvement with some company or another these days?

If all you do is follow carp angling on social media it would be easy to believe that too, everyone seems to want to associate themselves with a brand or try to wore themselves out for 50p off a kilo or a free packet of swivels.

There are professional whores in the carp world that will flock around any new product in the hope of getting a sniff of a discount in exchange for hash tagging the sh*t out of it or writing a blog about how amazing their embroidered cap is. You don't have to look far to find them.

Although I'm not sure what that's got to do with Carl & Alex.

Carl and Alex are very good anglers,they fish for loads of different species all over the world.I enjoy watching them as no in your face product promoting,just two brothers loving their fishing and giving a few tips along the way.
I just hope now got korda/guru backing it does not change how they do things

This is where me and modern carp angling go our separate ways.

Iíve never heard of them.

No disrespect meant and I wish them well but just not my cup of tea along with all the other Ďconsultants, media stars or just wannabeís.

Two things in life which always puzzle me:

I did 22 years in the army but seem to be the only ex squaddy I know of that didnít have some involvement
( direct or indirect) with the SAS or Special Forces.

Iíve been carp fishing since the 70ís and have never been sponsored, consulted and am a total unknown.

Any others out there?

I am guessing that being Sponsored rather than employed by Korda will give them greater freedom to pursue their channel whilst having a significant sponsor to help pay the bills and open up more doors to other endorsements from the likes of mainline, Trakker and Diawa, which tends to go hand in hand with Korda affiliation?

I just hope they dont forget the support and opportunity that was given to them from the Team at Nash and burn any bridges, the angling world is a very small place.

I see after leaving Nash to do their own thing, they are now sponsored by Korda. Good move by fairbrass getting them on board.
