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

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................
