Hi Folks, well April has been a rather strange month here with Catch Carp Spain, what with volcanic ash clouds, more rain and rising water levels. What can you do when Mother Natures being an arse…. The two groups that we had booked in April unluckily both fell victim to the volcanic ash that grounded flights in the U.K. We quickly got on the blower to them though and soon had new dates arranged that suited all parties concerned. Did manage a couple of sessions on Orellana myself this month, the first being a short two day session with Craig from Extremafishing. The trip turned out to be more than a bit frustrating as we spent the two days watching from the bank we were on, the fish topping non stop on the opposite bank, which unfortunately had no access for us, and with no boats allowed on this part of the lake, no way of getting across. Wasn‘t all bad though, I did put a nice 32lb common on the bank at the end of the session that went like a scalded cat and gave us both a good laugh. I was really looking forward to my next session as it was going to be on one of my favourite areas on the lake and the winds were forecast to be coming from the best direction possible for that particular area. Was joined on the bank this time with Stuart who is a mate of Craigs. Well as luck would have it the wind was perfect, but unfortunately the night before we hit the lake it pissed down and carried on for the first day of the session. This resulted in the opening of the dam on the lake above us, with the water levels rising a good 6 inches to a foot every day making the session a complete wash out. We did however get some great news this month, Alfredo a good local friend of Catch Carp Spain landed his first 20kilo plus Orellana carp at the start of the month. Well done mate from everyone here at Catch Carp Spain. We’re sure there’s bigger still to come from you. And to end on folks, keep you eye on our news page as we have an incredible summer offer coming which is not to be missed. It’ll be posted on this page in the next few days and is a real cracker.
