A typical Orellana run.


a typical Orellana run, the pick up, lead drop and the bolt, awesome

Just back from a  4 day session on the Orellana.
I went with a local lad, a friend I have known for ages but never fished with. We knew it would be hard as easterly winds were forecast and we chose to fish a private finca rather than with a head wind in a busier area. but when the temperature soared to a crazy 30 degrees, it was harder.

Between us we had 10 runs, Mine mostly hard fighting upper 20's and Guampe beating his PB with these cracking 39lb and a 41.5lb Commons.

finally were back on the banks of the Orellana.
The Dutch lads have been back, their 7th time with us, and great fun as usual. They have had plenty of runs but unfortunately nothing big yet, biggest 34.5lb. The weather hasn't been great for their first couple of days, but that's about to change, so we hope some lumps start to get their heads down.
I am actually going to fish 3 days with them, my first serious session for over a year due to illness, my back problem has been diagnosed and a lot better, so here goes.
  I was hoping to sell but carry on working with the new management, however due to timewasters and dreamers, it didn't happen. With my back being a lot better, finally found out the problem, we are still 'open for business' and have plans to expand our services.
I have had my first session on the Orellana for a long time, 3 days, 20 runs, biggest fish this cracking 23.2kg (51.5lb) common a couple of 30s with one at 38.5lb

The Dutch pair had around 30 runs between them, lots of small fish, mainly upper 20s, Eric had a couple of high 30s, but unfortunately got beaten up as he tried to do some water pics with them. They had been in recovery sacks a couple of hours and unfortunately they were a lot stronger than Eric. Was funny but no photos.

38.5 lb
 Back on the bank this week, a social with a  friend. Not great weather, easterly winds all week, but we shall see what happens................
