Orellana Carp Fishing

Robert, Craigs nephew, has been helping us out over the last few weeks and he managed to get some time on the rods when Dave went off for a shower. A couple of years ago on his last visit, he had a 34lb PB Mirror and he’s been at it again. Another new PB Mirror of 36.6lb, and what a beauty….

As you can see most Orellana fish are fin perfect, they are wild fish and we have never seen the same fish caught twice.. Craig on the other hand has landed this 38lb 14oz Common that has to be one of the ugliest fish we have seen. Well its quite pretty next to Craig…

Novice Carp angler Dave decided to dive in at the deep end and take on the Orellana.

With only 18 months fishing experience and a PB of 16lb, he beat his PB several times. In total he had fish of 18lb, seven 20s, most around 26 – 28lb, a 34, 36, 37.5 and a cracking 45lb 14oz Common


George joined us for a couple of nights, keeping us well entertained with his antics. On his previous overnight visit he took his PB to 28lb, this time he joined us for 3 days and had three 30lb plus fish out. The fishing went a little quiet for a couple of days due to a brisk easterly wind, however George kept us from getting bored. Mauld wine was brewed, steaks cooked FlambĂ© style, you can imagine what happened when far too much Vodka was poured on… When Dave returned from the shower run he found he had a lovely garden around his bivvy – and Dave wants George to join him next year, can’t wait….
