Quality bait is an absolute must, after all having shiny rods won’t get you a bite!
For the cats we use 3 manufacturers of pellets, Coppens, Skrettings and Biomar all of which are tried and tested and stocked depending on supply. For the carp fishing we have a great variety of baits to cover all conditions and situations. Colder water conditions particles (maize and tigers ) and boilies from Northern Baits, Mainline and Urban work well, as the water warms up pellets and boilies start to work best. All are always in stock and the particles can be freshly prepared daily.
We also stock a good supply of pop ups, dips and flavours for those of you who like to put your own stamp on things. If you have your favourite bait back home why not bring it over to try, you never know it may be the next best thing!
With the experience we have gained having fished this incredible river for over 16 years we feel the locations, quality tackle and bait we provide will give you the best possible chance of catching your dream fish.
We all know generally the lighter and finer you fish the more runs you will get.
Here this amazing river can turn up a surprise every run you really do not know what could pick your bait up next, therefore strong reliable tackle is a must.
The 6lb test cat rods we use are Daiwa Excelers and new for 2018 matched with Penn 8500LL reels, spooled with 90lb braid, for those who prefer we offer the option of 5lb test spod rods which are fitted with Shimano 12000D.
The carp rods are by Chub 3.5lb test Outkast Plus’s matched with Shimano 8000D reels, new for 2019 we will be using Shimano TX2 3.25 tc rods matched with Ultegra 14000 reels.
Our end tackle for the carp fishing is by Korda, tried, tested and reliable, for the cats the highest quality hook links, swivels and hooks are used to ensure everything possible is done for you to land your dream fish. All is available from our small on site tackle shop. If you prefer to use your own end tackle that’s fine but step it up ……you have been warned!
Also provided for your stay are pods, alarms, nets, mats, scales also chairs, bed chairs, sleeping bags and oval shelters for that over nighter or two. All are quality and branded and regularly replaced when worn or broken.
There are times when baiting up with a dingy is needed, for this we have a 2.3 metre inflatable complete with Garmin 4 fish finder which has GPS so you can mark your spots and accurately return.
We also have a 4.5 metre fishing boat by Quicksilver. This is equipped with a 10hp outboard and fish finder and can be hired out on certain stretches of the river.
The fishing here in Flix is superb, match it with the scenery, weather and accommodation you have the total holiday.
We are based in the Town of Flix where the fabulous River Ebro famous for its huge Wels Catfish and Carp passes both sides of the village via the Meander.
