the most embarrassing video we've ever made

After stumbling across our old hard drive from years ago we decided to take a look at our old embarrassing fishing footage. Get ready for some cringe!

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, bass fishing and even a bit of saltwater angling.

    Being a new subscriber and enjoying your content it was a real treat to see the younger lads from 10 yrs ago learning their craft, enjoying fishing and family. Being a senior citizen (62) I fully understand how watching something you said or did years ago can be embarrassing but believe me as time goes by you'll look at those days quite differently than now. Keep up the excellent work and at least by being a new viewer I can go back and watch all the ones I've missed from earlier days. Keep safe and good wishes from the U.S.A. I'm even learning how to speak the "english" language fluently.

    I think you should be both proud of what you did as two young lads, I think it was amazing, and although I understand you thinking it cringeworthy its really not if you take it for what it was, two young lads making fishing films that were amazingly well done for the time.

    Haha loved it, cheered me up as im in pain just had knee replacement. You lads have done so well and prob one of the longest youtubers. I think its great that you gave up ur jobs to go back to your own fishing doing what yous want to do, with a good mixture of fish. Hope you continue for many years. Ive been fishing 49yrs started at 7yrs old. Love all your vids, entertaining with very good tutorials. So all the best to you both and looking forward to more vids.

    Guys, I noticed you needed to look for small bitter gourds, double boil them with chicken or pork, or with some other veggies and drink the soup. It is good for blood detoxification and for your skins. Check out Chinese double-boiled soups channels to learn some recipes.

Just like you indicated, it takes all the awkwardness of the experience to get to who you are today. I've been watching your video files and you both seem like well adjusted adults and thats to be commended. Enjoy life and I will continue to consume your content ... Good job. Jamie from Ohio, USA.

    This is not the most embarrassing video. in fact, i dont think you ever made one. all these young ones are just proof, how determined you were from the start. not many anglers can say that. you should promote this a lot more. i remember as a child, would have loved to see you two doing business already. it would help a lot of kids.

    Say what you want friends - but the enthusiasm you have as very young fisherman never comes back. The fight and dreams for the first 5 kg carp, 5 kg pike, 2 kg of tench, 1 kg of perch and what else the very young us were fishing for. Everyone remember that beautiful time ... right?

We used to live together years ago and it was brilliant, and we have been fishing partners since we were about 7 or 8 (we are now 37 and 38). Missed his birthday 48 hour trip carping because of the lockdown πŸ™. Can’t wait to get back out there! Stay safe, thanks for continuing to entertain πŸ€™πŸΌπŸŽ£
