Orellana Winter fishing January 2014

Rick and gang have been back again,, they cant get enough of the Orellana,,, even if they weren't blessed with good weather conditions.... Fishing is slow during the depth of winter but the big fish are known to show, however gale force winds didn't help matters, 5oz couldn't hold and hooks were soon blunt.

Lee with a 39lb 14oz Orellana Common

 They did manage to runs, Lee landed these at 39lb14 and 42lb 8oz. Rick didn't have the luck, he lost 2 fish, one being a lump, it was well into the 60's.

and this 42lb 8oz

Ricks already planning the next trip and will be over as soon as the weather shows improvement, I shall look forward to it as I will be fishing with him.


Our new tool, a 5.3 m Skiff with 40hp, makes light work of shifting all the gear

Getting to good swims can be difficult after rain, not now, we can transport 4 anglers and all the gear in minutes.
We already have some access to great...
areas through Private 'fincas' however now with the boat, not only can get at other areas with ease, its a back up if there's been heavy rain and access by 4x4 is not an option.

There's always the bonus for anglers to have a look at the lake from the water as the boat takes 5 people.
