Thanks so much John for a most enjoyable couple of days fishing and also for all your help in connection with my recent visit to the Algarve. Although being an avid angler for many years up until the millennium, I now consider myself very much a novice and have to learn the art all over again. The accommodation arranged for me was absolutely first class, in every way, and my apartment was equipped with everything I could ever need. The facilities, including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, gymnasium, sauna, massage and pool table were superb and the local restaurants o!ered great food at a very reasonable price.

The fishing trips were very much the highlight of my trip, tremendously helped by the fact that all the tackle and bait that you provided was spot-on and the weather, although not suitable for sun bathing was absolutely perfect for fishing with an average temperature of around 23 degrees centigrade. The lake we fished, just a fifteen minute drive from my apartment, was absolutely delightful with the local goats, pigs, horse and a variety of birds that came to have a drink further enhanced the experience. I must admit that my day one catch of thirteen carp, up to 7lb, including a fabulous looking fully scaled mirror and a bonus barbel of 4lb, eclipsed my wildest expectations.

I am sending you a copy of the short video sequence that I did of you playing and landing one of your fish together with a few random pics that I took. However, I think that I should mention that although they show you dressed for a British winter, I was fishing next to you in my T-shirt and shorts. My second day turned out even better, with fourteen carp, up to 6lb, plus four barbel, all around the same size as the one I caught the previous day, providing me with a similar tremendous feeling of excitement that I used to experience when I first started fishing some ffty years ago. Just as it was all those years ago, I cannot wait for my next fishing trip and I am planning to return next February.

Thank you again John for making it all possible.
