More than a year after i was first invited over by our guide Martin Foden the dream of fishing the river Ebro became a reality.
We started out on the river Segre which is a tributary of the river Ebro and then moved onto the main river at Almatret the next morning for six days.
The Carp Fishing Trips & Holidays Team at the Iktus Carp Lake in France October 2014
– Carp fishing holidays In the early years around 2000 when there was only a handfull of us fishing for carp with boilies and particles in southern africa. Was called boilie fishing then and the papagoeiers were amazed at the size of fish that swam in our waters. Part 1- Catfishjoe productions
We start off the day fishing with a thick head but also with clarity of purpose, catch a carp! The angling has been going well and carp are coming to the net. The early morning produces a heart stopping battle with a fighting carp from swim 30. The rest of the morning however, gets absorbed into the early afternoon as a battle of wits takes place in the margin of the lake, between me, a greedy common carp and it’s friend, a much larger fatter mirror carp.

Up comes the last session of the first week. I (only just) manage a (very) late start as the beer intake, pizza’s and methi chicken’s begin to take their toll. I retrive the weeks experience’s stored under ‘fishing’ and let my mind switch to ‘auto-pilot’.
Back in the east bay for a dawn start and there is somthing pulling my string that leaves me confounded. Later in the day I catch one of the better fish in the lake and it simply takes my breath away.
