This little newsflash post is soon to be followed by a fishing update, but I just have a few things of interest I thought I should share…
Firstly, Carl Allman of Rio Ebro Angling, who we chose to fish the Ebro with – for zander, roach, carp and catfish – last September, acheived second place in IGFA‘s World Record Acheivement Awards, as acknowledgement of him guiding anglers to a total of 18 line class World Records during 2011 alone! I’d like to say I was one of those anglers… but I’d be lying!
Rio Ebro Angling also have a newly redesigned website http://www.rioebroangling.com/ and I urge you to check it out if you’re thinking of venturing to foreign shores in search of fish this Summer. There is a limit to how many bookings a single guide can take and I assure you Carl is among the best, so make your enquiries sooner rather than later.
I wrote an article a little while ago, about storing and keeping worms, including lobworms and denbrobaenas (“dendras”). I’ve put it up on my website. If you want good, plump, fresh worms whenever you need them, without spending a fortune keeping them, it’s worth taking a look: http://www.just-fish.co.uk/articles/41-keeping-worms-fishing-bait.html
The other features are two reviews of Cyprinus products. The first of which is an oval brolly/shelter called the V3. It’s ideal for spring & summer overnighters or for really windy and wet day sessions; just the job for an all-round specialist like I try to be!
