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 NowHi folks, well it’s been another cracker of a month here in Extremadura for C.C.S. June started with George, Paul and Chris coming up from Seville for a couple of days fishing on Orellana. Things went well right from the off with the lads getting straight into the fish and over the 2 days having something like 15 odd runs with all three of them leaving with new p.b.’s.  Well done lads, nice fishing and a great laugh had on the bank.Looking forward to seeing you next time. After this, my self and Craig managed to get a three day session in on Orellana. What a session it turned out to be. After the cracker of a 2009 season I’d had, with almost every session producing carp of over 40lbs for me, this year was proving more difficult, but that was about to change.  Craig and I this year have had very little luck with the weather when fishing ourselves, so it was nice this time for some good conditions to be forecast for the coming three days. The weather had been quite hot for some time  with very little wind, but was set to change to cloudy with rain and a good strong wind blowing out the west that would do just fine. The first day was great fun with lots of fish showing close in and both Craig and I catching well into double figures with the average carp being around the 30lb mark.

The second day started much the same with us both straight into the fish. By lunch time I had decided it was time for a change of tactics. This year I had set myself a target of catching a 60lb or bigger carp on Orellana and although I was having great fun catching plenty of fish at the time, they were all around the same size, 25lb to 35lb. That morning I had seen a couple of bigger fish topping further out at the edge of an old river bed so decided to stick all three rods along there. I knew this would slow the action down for me but felt this was the best chance I had of picking up a bigger fish. For the first 5 hours nothing, with Craig still bagging up and starting to catch bigger fish too.  When my left hand rod went screaming off, as soon as I picked the rod up I knew it was a decent fish. The only problem was it was heading straight to my left where there were a mass of sharp rocks and there was nothing I could do to stop it. Ping, line cut, fish gone, bollocks- never mind the tactics were working and my confidence was up. However, it only took another 45 minutes before bang, this time the right hand rod went screaming off.  Yet again, as soon as I picked the rod up I knew it was a good fish and was taking a load of line, but this time I had a lot more open water in front of me so could afford to let it run, and run it did, must have taken a good 100 yards of the spool before I managed to turn it. Orellana carp, you can’t beat them for power. Anyway, after what Craig said was a good 25 minutes of arm breaking, work finally I got it close to the net, but even after this the bugger would not give up and would not get in the bloody net. By this time I could see it was a cracker, so a 5 nervous minutes were spent before I got it’s head up and Craig got the net safely under it YES. It was when Craig gathered the net up that I started to get excited as I could then see it was a real monster.  So onto the mat and into the sling for weighing, with the scales stopping at 59 and a half pounds. GET IN THERE. So, half a pound short of this year’s target, but a new Orellana p.b. for me just the same, and still half the season left. The last day of the session saw us catch more carp and end up with over 1100lb of fish for the three days and a great time had. We did get one more short session in before the end of the month, with Craig catching a couple of nice 30lb plus carp and me a couple of doubles but the temperature by then was climbing again, so that’s it till the temperatures drop again at the end of August, beginning of September.   Can’t wait!!
