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 hope you have all enjoyed the festive season and are ready to take on the New Carp Fishing Year. December was a quiet month here in Extremadura with the temperatures on the bank dipping below zero and the water temp down to 10c. Still we did get out a couple of times onto the bank during the month with a short 3 night session and a longer session of 7 nights. The first short session was a bit of a waste as a cold snap came down from the north and took the temperature on the bank down to -4  for a couple of nights and totally killed the fishing. Only one brave fish showed over the three nights on the bank.  The second session was a lot more successful with the cold snap gone and things starting to warm up a bit.

 I managed 8 runs over the week.  The down side was that the larger fish were still off the feed and none of the fish made it over the mid twenty mark.  It was still nice though to be on the fish given how the weather had been and the larger fish are sure to be needing a munch before long. It was great to see another article from Andy Chambers on the fantastic fishing we have to offer here in Spain in the December issue of Carp World.  I always find Andy’s articles to be a good read whether they are on the waters here in Spain or elsewhere in Europe. I would like though to point out a couple of inaccuracies in Andy’s article.  I don’t think Andy has been down to Orellana or Sierra Brava over the last couple of years and there have been a couple of really positive changes to the rules since then. First of all there has been legal night fishing on Orellana for the last two years in the designated night fishing zone which I think I am right in saying makes Orellana the only lake in Spain to have this.  Also now for the first time in about 7 years boats are permitted for use on Sierra Brava but with no motors. The other big change here this year has been the fact that Orellana now has opened up pretty much all the lake to boat’s which has meant that with our five meter skiff here at Catch Carp Spain we can get to where the fish are at and not have to wait for them to come to us.
