Your guide is Gary Sheridan he has been on the river Ebro for over a decade. Gary has a excellent track record for catching big fish and lots of them! His fishing history ranges from back in the early 1980s when he was a match fisherman, from both sea and freshwater boat and shore.Winning his first ever competition when he was only 13 years old. Gary has been a serious course, carp, predator and sea angler for well over 30+ years so you are good hands.
Your accomodation is a fully furnished self catering Apartment located in the centre of Caspe. You have a selection of bars and a selection of shops to chose from, all within a stones throw of where you are located sleeping up to 6 people.
Here lies the best question for which I have only the most honest and sincere answer for you. As follows we have in the past had catches over 12,000lbs of catfish in five days in November and we have also had some of the best catches in Apri l/ May for some years, but last April/may the river was in such a bad condition and it fished so poorly there was no comparison to any of the previous years fishing.

We still caught fish, we have had some Excellent catches in the following months where the river had been mostly stable. January, February, March, June, July, August, September, October and November. The reason for not including April and May in there is simply because it has flooded on a couple of occasions but we do still catch a lot of fish when the river is in flood the locations we can fish are narrowed down to just a few.

So where the fish has been feeding in January and February will now be under deep water and of course not fishable. If you have booked for 2010 in April the river is now set to be in superb form so this year looks excellent. The reason the river rises so much is down to the dams and the flood water from the snow in the mountains.

There is always somewhere to fish but the best locations that I prefer to fish are under water when the river is in flood. We hope this has answered some of the questions you may be asking yourselves. We are honest and sincere with our answers so you don’t get the bull some companies give out to you saying “you should have been here last week”, or “we have caught so many catfish mate we don’t know what’s going on mate now pay me for those bags of bait”.

We do have some spare jackets and wet weather gear here for you we also have brollys if the weather looks set to be a damp one then we shall try our best to make it better for you. The tracker brollys or the big covers we use are more than sufficient, we hope this helps.
You should bring with you apppropriate clothes to wear (depending on the time of year), some decent trainers or walking shoes from the months of January to April after this its normally sandals that have a good fastening or slip on water proof style beach shoe, this is because you will be going in the water with the fish… a lot!

A jacket is required from the months of January to May, and then again from October to January. You can bring some end tackle for carp if you only want to use your own end tackle. In the price for this year 2016 we include all that for you, but anglers being what they are may well wish to bring there own with them. We have lead weights here, but you do need to bring your own PVA bags scissors bolie needles stringer needle, boilie stops and your usual small little special pieces that you use, as like a lot of anglers there are those out there that do like to still bring there own bits with them.

You should also bring suntan lotion, a good hat to keep your head cool and sun glasses.

If you suffer from any type of health ailment, heart problem, asthma or any other medical problem we have to clearly state that you are fully responsible for bringing your own medicine / medical supplies including: TABLETS, INHALERS, LIQUIDS, HEART PILLS, MACHINES OF ANY TYPE SUCH AS OXYGEN MACHINES – WE HOPE THIS CLEAR.
