Whether you are 73 or 13 years old, catching your personal best carp is a magical moment. The exhileration of seeing that gleaming bar of gold on the unhooking mat is one of the factors which makes angling such a captivating and rewarding experience; Just like Dennis. He came to the Ebro with a personal best of just 7 lbs and ended up breaking that with every carp he caught in his 20 fish haul culminating in this immaculate 31 pounder. To say it brought tears to his eyes is not exagerating.
All the guides at Ebro Valley Angling were delighted at the pleasure that they were able to give to this gentleman in helping him achieve his ambition. And then there is Libby, below. The smile says it all. The pride in her smile sums up just what fishing is all about.
But these are not the exceptions. This is the norm for anglers who place their faith in Ebro Valley Angling to produce the goods for them. Our guides can read the conditions on the river and increase your chances of catching fish when all others are struggling for a bite.
Over the last few weeks the river levels and water temperatures have been up and down like a yo-yo and fishing has been very difficult on the main river. However the guides have found areas out of the main flow of snow water off the pyrennes where the temperature is higher and the results have been phenomenal with over 250 carp caught in the last 15 days and a high percentage of those have been over 20 lbs. With more than 10 fish over 30lbs as part of the catch, the biggest being 37 and a half pounds just about all our clients have broken their personal bests and have already started to plan their next trip. So If you fancy sharing in the action contact us and we can organise things.
