19 times Mark Pitchers was the funniest man in carp fishing

Mark Pitchers, we salute you. You wader-wearing, tea-drinking, beard-trimming carp freeeeak! Keep on thinking out loud. Here are his 19 funniest moments from the Fox Challenge videos.

1) When his dainty fingers destroyed the notion that any overnighter is swift...

2)...before recalling the carpiest thing he'd ever heard...

3) When he was left frustrated with his rod in his hand...

4) When he found a duck out of water...

5) ...and quickly realised why it was there...

6) When he shot down Harry for asking which bird he hated most...

7) Anything he's said on his Christmas speeches...

His Christmas proclamations include...

  • "Thanks to the beard, carp anglers are now able to achieve the look of having been on the bank for three weeks, even if they have just done a quick 23-hour overnighter."
  • "Even if wading is unnecessary or impossible, prior to photographing your prize it is important to don the chesties in order to achieve carpiness in pixel form."
  • "We all know if there's one thing more carpy than catching an actual carp it's blanking."

8) When he settled the social-media debate once and for all...

"A photograph posted on any social-media platform other than Instagram may as well be posted on the wall of a truck-stop toilet cubicle next to 'Call Big Dave on this number'. Big Dave won't filter your photos."

Amen, Mark. Amen.

9) When dogs were the must-have carp accessory...

"Dya lyk daags? No? Tough! Get one, because dogs are the must-have essential carpy item for 2014."

10) ...and when they weren't...

"Dya lyk daags? Nah? Well that's ok, because wives, girlfriends, children, mates, or just random humans have now replaced man's best when it comes to carpyfying those catch pics. Yep, that's right, dogs are so last year, but don't go bundling them into a sack and chucking them in the canal just yet, because just like camo these trends can soon come back around."

11) When he revealed a rare anatomical reason for accidentally mooning the camera...

12) This haircut...

13) And this one...

14) When he assessed Dick Walker's Redmire record...

15) When he refused to use worms as bait and set them free...

"I'm not butchering worms just for your amusement. Just massacre them? I couldn't do it. I'd feel guilty."

16) When he couldn't contain his joy at midnight on June 16...

Ok, it's not that funny, but we just can't stop watching this on a loop.
