First Session back at the” Figgy”

Long time waiting due to river conditions but the Fig Tree was calling so Matt, Tobi and Paul on tow off we went. The lads only wanted to fish days so we got set up as usual 4 cat, 2 carp rods and a good helping of pellets and Nutcracker.

Matt first on the rods and after a bit of a wait the Fig  produced its first run of the year to one of the carp rods. Ha Ha Matt was into a moggie on the carp rods great scrap and Matt who is a big lad was getting well and truly beaten up. 15 minutes in and we had it landed in the form of a very lively 65lb er. First ever cat for Matt and a very happy one at that. IMG_20150504_153911

Days proved hard going with a couple of carp and cats too 28lb but good sport. A night was needed and as the weather was being kind the third night we stayed out. Great idea as the rods were active with more cats to 28lb some nice carp to 20lb plus and Matt with another moggie at55lb.Paul 20lb

Tobi 22lb

We stayed most of the next day with only one more carp landed, a BBQ was enjoyed on their last night with a few hours fishing down the garden but an early trip back to Barca ment there time was up. Good trip with everybody catching new PB’s and im sure they will be back.


Until next time Paul

Let the Season Begin

Well everybody I know I’m late starting my blogs but will try and keep up from now……… What a season last year Huge thank you to all of you who made it a truly excellent one. This year the River was a bit of a pain being in flood from Jan until April, flooding out most of Zarragoza!!!! but we are off and running with the first to arrive were Jack and Will.

They done well last year and were hoping for some bigger cats this time round, unfortunately the river wasn’t good for the cats so we decided to target the carp instead. So with Urban Baits” Nutcracker” to put through it’s paces we set up for a 3 night stint in Riba Roja.

First day was slow but as always this river produces at dark and so it proved as the lads had a sleepless night with the rods rattling off continually. Nearly all the fish were high doubles low 20’s all scraping well as usual for the carp in this river. Day two and the fish were loving the Nutcracker as more fish were landed including a nice 28lb common for will.

The next two days and nights went well with us landing some 30 plus fish loosing a few as well but the best of the bunch went to Will again with a cracker and new PB at 34lb.Will 34lb

The lads came off on day four and had a day out in Salou, but finished their trip off nicely with a couple of mid 20’s at the garden.will 26lb

Good trip lots of carp caught but will have to return for the cats another day.


Until next time Paul

Finishing in Style.

What with the weather not great wet and cold it was Andy, Chris, Terry who were to have a go for the second time this year with a new face in Simon. So camp set up lets see what happens. Andy lost a very big fish here back in May but the snag has been removed so should be ok in landing some big uns this time. Well Andy duly did with a fish weighing exactly 100lb what a start and Chris followed up with a big 80 and new PB.Chris 84lb

Conditions wet but they managed a few smaller fish when Simon hooked into a big one. Biggest fish before this trip was a upper double carp so watching him play this one was priceless, didn’t help getting stick from his so called friends!!! but at 104lb the Figgy was still producing.Simon 104lb

Terry (he’s the one on the left) is a non fisherman he just comes for the crack!!!! and well prepared as his luggage turned into full camping kit including luxury sleeping bag, over wrap blow up mattress (shaped like a sheep)!!!! and binoculars for spotting birds!!!!!  Yes we kept Terry down the far end!!!!  Pizzas and Kebabs keeping the lads fed well biscuits, more kebabs, cheese on toast, bacon rolls, more crisps, more tea, more coffee more lots of food they were ok!!!!

Their trip was for 3 nights which soon came round, Andy on strike when a spod rod was away. Andy is a big lad…. used to playing barbel on a light rod and centre pin so when a fish does this to him he knew he had a good fish on. So much line could he have hooked the biggest fish of the season!! The fished stayed low and because it was on a spod rod with carp rig!! He couldn’t put too much more pressure on it but slowly he got it back to in front of us only for a banana to surface!!! Wow  many years have passed with out seeing a true Manderin but we have now. What a fight as well, what a finish to their trip and the season.94lb manderin Andy

Scales pulled up short for it to be a Ton but really didn’t matter 94lb was big enough for this incredible creature. Andy 94lb manderin

Well that’s that, we went out and had a great steak meal and a couple of beers to celebrate, the lads finished my best ever season in style, I’m now going to have a rest before I try and write up all that’s happened this year!!!

The Fig Tree has done the business for most this year lots of big cats, some huge carp kept us cool in the summer and freezing cold in the winter! but with the first full year of fishing here it has produced and done us proud.

Looking forward to next year!!!!!


Until 2015   Paul
