Wels Catfishing and Carp fishing on the River Ebro, Catalonia, Spain.

Andy had 17lb, 34lb and 36lb. (His pb Ebro common). Fantastic. Plus 4 Chubb. Yanz caught a 35lb 8oz, just off beating Andy. Better luck next time.
Who are we and what do we offer?
We have been based on the River Ebro in Mora La Nova, Catalonia, Spain for 17 years. We offer friendly guided/non guided catfish and carp fishing in Spain, for all abilities, on secluded river banks and in a peaceful, sunny location.
Catfish and carp populations in the River Ebro are plentiful, with our biggest catch on record being 149lbs! We have a number of prime fishing locations (away from the crowds) to choose from, as well as a boat to take you on river excursions.
Do not worry if you have never fished before as the owner can be there to guide you.

What equipment will you use?
The equipment you will be using has been found to be the best for targeting the fish in this stretch of the river. 2 x catfishing rods with large Shimano baitrunner reels with line to suit or 2 x ESP Paragon rods with Shimano carp baitrunner reels with line to suit, or one of each. Only two rods per person as per the fishing licence. Licence already obtained by us.
We recommend the use of Coppins International 20mm halibutt pellets and/or Coppins 20mm krill pellets. Both available on site and both prove very useful.

If the strain of fishing on the river gets too much, you can use our private swimming pool and sun loungers or relax on the balcony overlooking the River Ebro from the river house.
