Pleasure fishing

After spending every summer for many years exploring the fishing in Ireland, I stumbled upon the fishing in Portugal and never looked back. The pleasure fishing in Portugal is simply incredibly good with 100lb bags of hard fighting carp and barbel are virtually guaranteed for average anglers fishing with me. My best catch was over 300lbs and included 19 doubles to 18lbs. A

good match angler can catch over 100 hard fighting common carp per day!

A recent article by Andy Little in Anglers Mail detailed his experiences on a trip to Portugal where reported that Portugal’s carp are 'the hardest fighting carp in the world!'



We meet you at the airport and take you to our new base in a nice hotel.

We supply ALL your fishing gear, so no extra expense on the plane - this is quality tackle that we are constantly adding to, this year we have added more rods and reels by Shimano, rods from ABU, Maver and Grey's.

This accommodation is close to a new venue with good fishing, so no need for early starts, most like to get up around 7.30, have a full English breakfast. We leave around 8.00am for the fishing. These timings are completely flexible, you can choose to start later if you wish or even night fish if you prefer.

Whilst we usually set out to fish one particular water as the results get better day by day as the feed draws in the fish, you can of course choose to fish other waters in the area, but moving about too much is not the way to get the best out of the available sport!

You take cold drinks and I make hot drinks whilst we are out fishing. We normally finish the day around 7.00pm and then hit the local bar/restaurant for around 8.30 after a shower and change of clothes. A good meal with drinks is around £10.00 per head.

barbel-fishing-holidaysI supply your permits, bait by the dustbin full, boilies and cases of sweetcorn. I even throw in a few cases of beer and bottles of brandy.

When the trip is over, I take you back to the airport, if your flights are around 6.00pm, we can get a half days fishing in on the last day if you choose.

*Compare the price for such organised, personally guided and attended fishing, we believe its "unbeatable"*

If you would like to get to enjoy some secluded fishing in Portugal? Book a trip with us now using our onine Reservation page!

We look forward to entertaining you, your family or friends soon?
