BGS (Bavarian Guiding Service) are based in Mequinenza and are arguably the longest established guiding outfit on the Ebro.All though a German company they do employ a British guide.Not the cheapest but they are reliable and a reputable firm................unlike so many others that are now out there.

 

Strangely enough the British guides who have set up further down river seem to be a lot better than the Mequinenza cowboys.

 

BTW,if you fancy going it alone I will gladly give you all the details re licences (a lot easier these days as you can get them on line) required club cards,insurances etc etc.Even give you a few banker swims if you want! Be warned though its a good old drive trailing a boat! Ive done it a couple of times...............

Yep that's my take but there are still a few that start up down the bottom end and only last a season or less ,Some of the boats that the new "Guides" down there have out on the river are a bit of a joke size wise for the number of anglers they say they can handle, Go with someone who has stood the test of time whichever part of the river you go to,Personally drift fishing or up by Tiveneys weir take some beating for the scenery and wildlife you can see a catfish is a added bonus esp when its starts towing the boat towards the med :D Steve.

Try here http://www.topcatfishing.co.uk/ Rob is based in Benifallet,about an hours drive from Reus..He has a well equiped boat and works very hard to catch the fish.The lower reaches he fishes are uncrowded and most of the time you are lucky if you see another angler,that's why i'm going back again next year..Good luck wherever you go..
