its been a while

Its been a long time since an update, we have bean really busy on the Predator side and a well deserved summer break. Unfortunately during this time, the external hard drive managed to eat everything and we were left with very few pictures, then would you believe it the PC threw a wobbler and lost everything on that too. 

I haven't managed much Carp fishing, but this an Orellana Carp of well over 35lb I took on lure from a Belly boat. Check out a bit of the fight on the following video.

Ian and Gaz were over, bringing their cheap wine with them. As always a great laugh and they even managed to catch some fish too 

Check out Ian's article

We have been quiet on the carp fishing side of things this year, we have been fairly busy with predator anglers, it's really picking up.
Andy and gang we over the beginning of May, some great lads and good anglers too, they are used to large waters, Andy has even even banked a respectable 71lb'er from Salagou.
From the start things were bad and they got worse for them, firstly they had baking hot temperature of 30 degrees plus with and easterly breeze then temperatures plummeted to around 15degs in the days and it pee'd it down. A couple of fish were taken when the front hit, but they just didn't get their heads down. They did manage several fish to 30lb, but nothing to write home about. What a great set of lads, although they had a hard time with the weather, (worst temp and rain for 40 years in May) they will be back.
Within days the temperature was back to normal for May and I knew the fish were going to get on it so, with the unused particle we had, Justo and I decided to take advantage of the last time we can comfortably fish from the bank and do a couple of day sessions pasty bashing.

Pasty bashing area Orellana.
We were on the bank Monday, 3 days after the lads left and we got straight into the fish, what a nightmare for the lads missing out because of the mental weather.
Justo has never done serious carp fishing so I am showing him the ropes so to say. We were straight into the fish, never managing to get a 3rd rod out. A lot of hard fighting pasties, but great fun. Over the last 2 days we managed over 40 runs between us, a PB for Justo at 45lb and my biggest at 35lb.

Back on the Orellana with a PB Mirror of 60lb 4oz ( 27.35kg) 
It's been a while since I have been carp fishing on the Orellana, only my second session of the year as we are setting up to provide Predator Fishing in the area. My first being a 4 day session in February with a freezing easterly wind, however Joe did get his PB.

I was only carp fishing as Cliff was over alone and I fished with him, Cliff had 22 Carp, 3 x 40s, around 8 upper 30's, a PB Barbel and even a few Black Bass on his carp rod as we packed up. All in all a great week full of surprises and great company.

Setting up the Predator side has been hard work, and Carp fishing has been put to one side, however we are back on the Orellana over the next months. 

Rick and the lads were over again in May, they managed fish to over 60lb, and lost a fair few in the process, a couple of big lumps.

Superb Predator Fishing in Extremadura

Its been a while since we have been on the bank Carp fishing, its down to the fact that we have been setting up to accommodate Predator fishing here.
Two Spanish anglers, Tomas and Justo, are now working with us and we are ready to go. We offer Predator fishing from Float Tube and a 6 m Skiff.

Top Predator anglers, Thomas Sintobin and Dutch Zander champion, Maikel have already visited us here and had great results. Keep an eye out for the article to see what they caught, soon to be published in well known Predator Publications.

A 4 day session in November

A 4 day session on the Orellana cut short due to crazy winds

well what a session I had, not only did I have to put up with gale force winds but also a full moon.. and to finish it all off, I had 6 runs in the afternoon I had to pack up, they were right on it but I had to leave.

For a couple of days I struggled to get rods out, let alone a baited area a couple of times I thought the bivvy was gonna take off!!

I still managed a 34.5, 35, 36, 38.5, 39, 41lb.. lost a good fish and half a dozen upper 20's lower 30's. Not forgetting the 32lb'er that beat me up hahha
I am back from my weekend away and looking forward to a few more sessions with some great lads coming up to fish with me
