SNOW CARP Yes!! Snow in Spain!! It happens!! True, it hasn’t happened in this area for decades and last time we saw this much snow away from the mountains, was in neighbouring Catalunya 20 years ago. But snow we had and we weren’t going to let it interfere with our fishing…no way!!
With over four months since the brief summer flurry of clients, and no fishing at all allowed during the first lock down, this autumn we started fishing regularly as a small group. Not something we do that often, as many of us are busy guiding, and time off is dedicated to maintenance, kit cleaning and actually spending some time with our partners. 🙂
A day out was planned for Saturday and the fact that 10 inches of snow fell overnight did not deter us. Luckily I had invested in some Ridge Monkey outerwear so I knew I was going to be warm as toast. A quick WhatsApp was sent around the group to gee up some of the more reluctant ones and off we set at 8am to meet up on the bank.
We each set up our two allowed rods, one in the deeper water for carp and a feeder rod for a little bit of fun with the roach and bream. One point each given for catching the right fish on the correct rod, a minus point if any of us caught a carp on the feeder or a roach on the carp rod.
Unfortunately the fish had other ideas. Only one carp was pulled out between five of us, and around about 20 bleak. But the hot spaghetti Bolognese with meatballs was delicious and the company was great #Riverebro #Riverebrofishing #riverebrocatfishng #snowcarp
