Comizo, Cats and Carp

We have just returned from a trip to the Extremadura area of Spain in search of Comizo barbel, joining us on the trip was Cees and Heike our great friends from Germany.

Fishing one of the many man made lakes in the area we were targeting barbel but were of course happy to catch anything, which was a good job as it was hard not to catch carp and cat fish as well as barbel, I was happy to land over 200 fish during the trip, with the majority of these being barbel and the best going over 15lb, I was well satisfied with the result

The weather was in the main very good with a couple of days of blustery showers, but in general it was very good with mid 20's a couple of days.

The barbel in the main were in the 5 to 8lb, class scrapped like crazy and were very photogenic

We also had plenty of catfish and carp with mid doubles amongst them, the catfish were ugly brutes but put up the best scrap of all, the smaller ones were a real pain just as the light fell in the evening, making it hard to target the barbel at the best time.

Tjitske took some great pictures as always, well done T.

A big thanks to Korum and Sonubaits for supplying the tackle and bait for the trip, Simply The Best........

A big thank you also to Cees and Heike for organising the accommodation and all the domestic arrangements for the trip, and Cees for transporting tackle and bait half way across Europe we really appreciate it

Since I've got into barbel fishing I have been looking at these giant spanish fish. Would just love to catch a big one.
Been to Spain for cats but never the barbel. Looks fabulous. Regards Gareth
