Hi Folks well it’s time for an update me thinks. ok ok as I am sure you have gathered by now sitting down writing updates for the website is not our strong point. Though I am glad to report that putting our clients onto the best carp fishing on Lake Orellana and supplying everything that is needed to see them safely in the net is still what we excel at. We are now using our facebook page to keep you up to date with catches and all of the news from the bank. From now on our Facebook page will be synched with this blog. Anyway here are some catches to feast your eyes on.

Catch Carp SpainHi folks, May was a good month here in Extremadura with C.C.S., lots of fish on the bank and new p.bs for most of our clients. We started the month with father and son Frank and Reggie coming up from the Costa Del Sol to join us for a couple of days on the bank. Though the fishing was hard, we had 3 runs and put 1 fish on the bank.  Unfortunately for Reggie he lost 2 good fish but his dad came good and landed a nice double. To be fair to Reggie, it was his first time fishing here and he came with reels loaded with 15lb line which he soon found out is not really up to the job of tackling the wild carp in Orellana. After this Craig and I took the opportunity to get in some fishing on Orellana. Right from the start of the session we were into the fish, catching plenty from 20 to 30 lbs.   After 2 days on the bank we got a call from a couple of lads who had come up on the off chance of getting a day’s fishing in, so it was off up the road to grab the lads and some tackle for them, then back down to the bank with Jay and Gareth. They could only manage a 12 hour session but nevertheless had 3 or 4 runs and put a couple of doubles on the bank.   Good going lads. The next day the same thing happened, with Lorenzo and Sebastian coming up from Seville for a 24 hour session with us.   Over the 24 hours they had 9 runs and managed to put 5 or 6 on the bank all over 20lb with them both getting new p.bs.  Well done lads. The next week I was giving Craig a hand with a camera crew who came out to make a film on Orellana.   As luck would have it, for the first time really this year, the sun came out and the temperature and air pressure rocketed,  making for crap fishing: bloody typical. Near the end of May the first ever World Carp Classic qualifier for Spain was to be held on Orellana with C.C.S. and Craig at Extremafishing both entering teams and, as you would expect, there was a good bit of healthy rivalry going on between us. The C.C.S. team would be my self and Stu with Craig and Chino fishing for Extremafishing. The draw was not kind to either of us, with Craig and Chino getting a right shocker and team C.C.S. getting an area we had never fished before. Turned out the swim we had had no features at all to fish to.  

So the only thing we could really do was try and cover as much of the water in front of us as we could. As it turned out this method worked quite well with us managing to put over 270lbs of carp on the bank for the 3 days which in the end gave us second over all, beating Craig and Chino who were stuck in a section where only 170lbs were caught in total, with them catching 90lbs, which was pretty good giving  them fourth over all, so a good showing from the British guides. Would just like to say thanks to Stu who really put in a great effort and was very unlucky not to take the first fish prize as he lost the first 4 fish on an old crayfish pot that we only managed to get out on the last day.  A pleasure to fish with you as always bud.  C.C.S would  also like to take this opportunity to congratulate the winning team of Fran Granados and Jorge Sacristian who landed a cracking 816lb of fish.   Very well done lads and the best of luck in the final.
