Hi Folks, well glad to say we are now at the end of the summer here in Extremadura. This year has been another roaster with temperatures in the high 30’s throughout July and August. It’s traditionally our poorest time of the year for fishing here in Extremadura and we have only spent 5 or 6 days over the whole period fishing. We did have Beaky and Mick up again from the coast for their third visit this year and spent 3 days with them on Sierra Brava. As is the norm at this time of year, fishing was hard and there were lots of summer anglers on the bank whose carp angling etiquette can sometimes leave a lot to be desired……Having said that, still managed to put fish on the bank, with Beaky doing particularly well, managing to put 4 or 5 carp on the bank over the 3 days.
Although we didn’t spend a lot of time fishing during the summer, we did put the free time to good use in securing some new and exciting areas on Orellana for our clients’ benefit in the coming months. Will keep you posted as to how these new areas are fishing as the year progresses.
I’d like to take the opportunity here, through the News Update, to answer a few frequently asked questions by people making enquiries through Catch Carp Spain.
- Is night fishing legal in Extremadura? – At the time of writing this news update, unfortunately the answer is still No. Legally you may fish an hour before sunrise and an hour after sunset. Although we at Catch Carp Spain do of course have total respect for the laws here in Extremadura, and a very good working relationship with the local authorities, we at the same time, in the good tradition of hard core carp anglers, will always stretch them as far as we possibly can for both ourselves and our clients.
- Can we bivvy up on the lake? – Yes. As long as you have the appropriate type of bivvy which Catch Carp Spain uses as standard.
- Can we go onto your new interactive booking form and choose different packages without submitting a booking? - Yes. The new interactive booking form is designed so that even if you are not booking there and then, you can still go on and try out as many options as you would like, to see which one suits your needs and budget without having to book immediately.
Well that’s it for now. We’re really looking forward to getting down to some serious angling again after the summer and to have 9 of the best months here in Extremadura for carp angling to look forward to. Will keep you updated at the end of every month as usual through our News Updates.
