Orellana Carping

After a week away visiting family Craig managed to get back onto the Orellana for a couple of short sessions. The first a social with Chino and Marie Jose, Chino works with his Dad and doesnt get a lot of free time to fish so he wanted to squeeze a few hours fishing in over the bank holiday weekend. They fished 2 days with Easterly winds but still managed a total of 13 runs between them. Only 2 fish were below 20lb and Chino banked a 14kg plus fish that he will be loading onto the TOKS competition to help him in securing the 1st position he holds.

Most of the other fish were mid to upper 20´s.

The second overnighter, Craig went alone, a much needed break away from organising another Tourist Board Trip for Tour Operators and writers from Dutch and Uk fishing magazines. Conditions were far from perfect with the easterly wind still blowing however he still had a couple of runs resulting in this fin perfect 14.5kg Common and.......

this cracking half Albino Carp.

Craig managed to get a little time to do some pleasure fishing with Steve and Linda. They all got beaten up by the small carp on float tactics, even the small carp here are very strong.

We have only managed a few days Carp fishing in-between Pleasure angling and loads of office work. Fish around the 25lb mark are showing regularly with a couple of 30s to 36lb and up to 5 runs a night.

A couple of PB’s for Tony and Arthur on their first trip here, Craig managed to make some free time to advise them, next time they will have a better idea of how to tackle the Orellana.

Thanks to Specialist tackle for the great prize in the TOKS 4 online competition. The ATTs silent alarms have arrived and hopefully won’t be silent for long. Carpology Magazine are covering the event in the European section and a small article about Craig winning the TOKS4 Summer contest will be featured soon.

Carpworld are covering the event for the UK area. We will be able to read about it as Craig also won a years subscription in the competition, another great prize

Thanks to Total Carp Magazine and JRC for awarding Andy a prize for his PB Common whilst fishing with us.
