To be honest, my four year old daughter should be doing this review. The moment we received Tony's latest DVD in the
post she had it unwrapped and in the DVD player before I could even switch the kettle on! She then sat transfixed through
both discs only breaking silence to utter a few odd word suchs as ‘wow, look at that fish, daddy!' and ‘can
we go there?'
Needless to say she was impressed, as was I. I've been
a long time follower of Tony's work, and this his sixth movie in the highly acclaimed GlobetrotterWorld film series is
another full on carpy treat, taking us to some of the most stunning waterscapes the sport has to offer and showing us fish
that most of us can only dream of catching.
The special two disc DVD set entitled
‘Wild Carp' offers the viewer two hours of high quality 16:9 widescreen viewing and covers Tony's most recent
exploits on waters across Italy, Holland, France, Gran Canaria and England.
I'm obsessively passionate about carp fishing, for me it's about far more than just the fish themselves; it's
the surrounding habitat, the wildlife the scenery, the unknown thrill of what you might catch that wraps it all up into perfection
- and that's what I love about Tony's DVD's. He targets awe-inspiring waters around the globe that in most cases
are relatively unknown and set amongst scenery to die for, and as such, the outcome isn't always guaranteed. I've
seen DVD's in the past where those fishing have had a prime swims on overstocked waters roped off and pre-baited for weeks
before they arrive to the point that they can't help but catch, but with Tony's fishing, thankfully, it's just
the opposite. Anything could happen and that's to its credit - it's real adventure fishing on real waters and whether
they catch or not, it makes for captivating viewing.
What's nice is that
he often knows just as little as us about what's in some of the waters he's visiting, so it's pioneering fishing
at its best and you get a real buzz just watching - I can't imagine how good it must feel to actually be out there doing
It's not a case of saying how many big fish are banked and listing all
their weights - if it's only numbers that float your boat then this is not the film for you. This film is all about the
places; magnificent places which also happen to hold some amazing fish. Don't get me wrong, there are lots of stunning
fish featured, but film making of this quality is about so much more...
is nicely interlaced with some interview style question and answer pieces where Tony talks about some of his most memorable
experiences to date, which are a nice touch and give real insight to the species and locations that keep him travelling the
world in search of new angling adventures.
In addition, there is some stunning
underwater footage filmed at the various locations fished, which again gives real insight to what lurks beneath. What I love
about Tony's work is that you need to expect the unexpected - one moment you're on a 13km long Italian lake, the next
you're on a windswept Meer in Holland - each water fished has you on the edge of your seat and you find yourself praying
that they can put an uncaught monster on the bank!
All the waters visited in
this latest film are equally stunning, as are the fish banked, but I have to say that my favourite part is the visit to Gran
Canaria - I've never seen such individually stunning, scaly fish! Every one is an absolute peach and as you'll see
when you watch it, they just keep coming one after the next - and at some seriously mouth watering sizes!
It goes without saying that I recommend it to anyone who likes the idea of heading off to fish the unknown.
It's another quality production from the Globetrotter stable. The only downside is that it'll probably be a good while
till the next instalment... I for one can't wait!

" ADVENTURE BY THE BUCKET LOAD!"
As many site regulars will know,
I’ve been an avid fan of Tony’s work for many, many years. During that time there have been various books and
DVDs which, to me, have all encapsulated the true essence of what fishing should be about; enjoyment and adventure…
and lots of it!
|Globetrotter PURE CARP special 2 -disc DVD set!
|TRAVEL WITH GLOBETROTTER - TONY DAVIES-PATRICK TO THE WILDEST LOCATIONS IN THE WORLD!
|In the ‘media rich’ environment carp fishing has
become, there are new DVDs hitting the shelves on a weekly basis, but to be honest, I rarely watch any of them. It’s
not that I don’t like the production, the anglers or the fish featured, it’s more to do with the staging which
many contain. I fully appreciate big brands need to get their messages across, but for me this often comes at the expense
of the enjoyment the viewer should experience when watching a DVD about carp fishing. Don’t get me wrong, there are
those who love all the technical stuff and get off on a big list of branded rig bits reeled off by a sponsored angler, but
if I want 'infommercials' or technical pieces, I can just go to YouTube or watch it on the telly…
Where’s the adventure, where’s the mystery? If we know exactly how said angler is going to approach the water,
every bit of kit he’s going to use, the name, weight, address and voting habits of every carp he’s going to bank,
then I’m afraid there is very little to inspire me.
I suppose that being in the trade has tainted me somewhat,
as I deal with carp related adverts, features and video footage on a daily basis, and I guess that’s the whole point
– if I’m going to make time to sit down and watch a video, then it’s got to be one that offers the ultimate
in excitement and adventure… and that’s where Tony comes in!
He’s spent most of his career fishing
waters the rest of us could only dream of. There’s no elitism here though, in most cases you or I could just as easily
set up in the same peg, just that we’d have to fly half way round the world to do it!
In this the 7th title in Tony’s Globetrotter World Series, Tony concentrates his efforts on waters
a little closer to home and spends time on waters in England, France and Holland, ranging in size from twenty acres to over
The production is honest and upfront and the spectacular footage shows exactly
what happens in the day to day exploits of Tony’s work and the results – of which there are many – speak
for themselves. There’s over two hours of quality footage captured on this two-disc set, and if, like me, you are a
fan of Tony’s past works, all I can say without spoiling the fun is that you won’t be disappointed!
What I love about Tony’s films is the way the viewer is offered a place right up front beside him, as
they capture not just what’s going on within the lakes, but of equal importance, what’s going on around them too,
giving you a really good feel for venues you may then want to go and fish yourself someday.
All in all, another thoroughly enjoyable instalment, and as always I look forward to the
next! Now at reduced Price at £14.99 (normally £16.99) available from this website. Don’t forget to
check out the back catalogue, too!

WILD CARP - REVIEWS & FEEDBACK
Just watched Wild Carp - and has to be one of my favourite Globetrotter DVD's to date. The footage seems
to be getting better and better, Tony's film making is like a fine wine! The only depressing part of watching the new
Globetrotter DVD is knowing I now have to wait for upto a year for the next instalment! Simon
Excellent and professional produced DVDs with a lot of great footage.
I have now 4 DVDs from Tony and I'm really excited. Highly recommended and 5 from 5 stars! Mark Forcella
No. 1 in making carp/nature
films! keep up the awesome work Tony! Thomas Ahlbom
now seen the most of the movies. And these films show what it's all about. The love for carp and nature. Stunning pictures
and footage, that takes the breath away from any angler around the world... This is not about what technique or what rig works
the best..Just pure carpangling and nature. Gotta love it. Martin-Carlo
Lovely m8 awsome filming, pleasure to watch. Dave Hendy
Having watched your latest dvd I
can without doubt say another masterpiece for the carp angler, stunning views and some cracking fish, above all else the honesty
to show how hard it can be. Very worth the dosh! David Robert
Just ordered your latest DVD. Due to a busy work- and study
schedule I haven't done much fishing for the last 3 years (apart from some catfish/carp sessions in Spain that is). When
times were rough and I missed the lakesides the most, I just watched one of your DVD's and was able to go on
afterwards. Keep up the good work Tony. Ralph Bosch
This series of dvd's are the best you can get. I've
got almost all carp dvd's there are on the market but this series is far away the best. The quality is amazing. It shows
exactly what fishing is all about. Hope we expect more in the future. Chris
van der Plas
These DVDs are the best footage,
scenery I have ever watched totally awesome. I wish I could fish the waters featured, especially Dolphin Lake a very
special place with stunning fish. Tony you are a legend in your own right, can't wait for more films to be shot. You are
a credit to the sport we all love so much. Scott "Geezer"

I've been a fan of Tony's work for many years, and as I've said on many occasions, I think
Globetrotters Quest is without doubt one of the best angling books ever published; stunning fish, stunning images and captivating stories
of adventure throughout the furthest flung corners of the globe - you just can't help but be drawn in to it.
In addition to the book (which at the time of writing is still available), Tony has also produced
a number of high quality carp films on DVD, and Carp Quest, his fifth release sees the adventurer out once more fishing some
of the most stunning waters you could possibly imagine in France, Italy and Gran Canaria. Tony's DVD's are about far
more than big fish; they capture something of the essence of carp fishing itself; the passion, the pain - the journey as much
as the achievement.
The whole of the first disc covers a session fished
with Raphael Biagini on the legendary Dolphin Lake in France, home of some of the largest carp in the world, but it's
no Turkey shoot - just the opposite. In cold water coming out of spring, the big fish aren't playing ball and it's
a fascinating game of cat and mouse as they adapt tactics and approaches to try and hit the bigger fish. During the session
we learn some of the history of the lake, its stock and the phenomenal growth rates attained by some of the fish within.
Running along side the reportage style pieces and interviews, there's also loads of stunning underwater footage
shot by Tony and Raphael Martos, and when all packaged together you just watch it want to be there - especially when the big
fish do start to hit the bank. A stunning brace of mirrors banked by Guillaume Otter in one night weighing 57lb and 64lb leaves
you in no doubt as to the size of some of the fish in the lake, and as the session nears its climax it all comes good for
Tony and Raphael too, all totally captivating stuff.
The second disc sees
Tony team up with Roberto Carbone to fish some new waters in Italy, and I don't think I'd be pushing it if I said
the waterscapes featured are among the finest I have ever seen. Again things don't go all their way and the action both
underwater and out of it is amazing and it's hard work and determination that grinds out results.
The final part shows a trip to Gran Canaria arranged by David Beecham. There's no shortage of fish
during the trip, and although the fish do not equal those from earlier in the film in terms of size, they are certainly lookers,
and the scaling on some of these fish has to be seen to be believed. Again for me, the interview with Dave Beecham was fascinating
as you learn about some of the untapped potential with many of the waters around Gran Canaria still not having been fished!
All in all it's another fantastic DVD that sums up everything that carp fishing should be about;
adventure, adrenalin and a healthy dose of the unknown! A fantastic piece of filmmaking in every way, if you've enjoyed
Tony's previous films, you'll be blown away by this one, which for me, is easily his best to date.
You can also watch a captivating short trailer of CARP QUEST on this websaite
that's sure to get the juices flowing!
(Please note that this title has now sold out).
