With a nice bag of carp.

Sunday, 8 November 2009


Dave's kindly gave us this week's results from Spain. He came third so he had a good day, He says if he as time during the week, he will send some more photo's.



This week was the 4th match of the Winter Championship. This is a series of 11 matches with the best 8 to count. The match was held at the Embalse de Argos. The embalse which is now being filled as it was at the lowest we had seen it, appears to have an effect on the fishing. Whether it is cold water being used from the local rivers or being brought in from else where, but the fishing is a struggle. With 22 people fishing only 4 anglers broke the 10 kilo mark. Compared to a year ago the majority of anglers would have been in double figures. One strange point in individual swims was that if pellet caught, then maggot and corn didn´t, and if maggot caught, then other baits didn´t work. Why ?????. It is probably this unknowing that keeps bringing you back ,hoping that one day all will be revealed.

A local conservation firm is currently clearing a lot of trees and undergrowth from the area and next year it will make access and parking better AND we hope the fishing will improve.!!!!!!!

1st  Ian ( Irish Wizard ) Dalzell fishing the pole and feeder using pellet with 22.00 kilo´s.

3rd Dave ( Yours Truly ) Hoare fishing the pole and feeder using pellet with 10.75 kilo´s.
