daytrip-fishing in the Algarve with Tightlines-PortugalOctober is a busy month here in Portugal for carp fishing most years and this one is going to be no different, despite the financial crisis that is affecting most of the world, our services are in more demand this year and for next season already.

Recent run of anglers booking 1 or 2 day trips has led to some fabulous fishing for carp on a couple of our local venues.

The latest saw Alan from Lancashire, who sent me a letter asking for some good pleasure fishing, he is a match angler, so is not into waiting all day for one fish even if its a big one. I took him to our nearest pleasure fishing water for 2 trips.

Day 1:  he had around 20 carp on the feeder - we feed the swim on leaving after 1st day with 7 kgs of particle feed.

Day 2:  Alan has fish after fish, non stop action all day, I set up and tried to tempt some bigger fish and had some bigger carp and 2 nice barbel.

During the day Nick from Australia joined us for this 2nd day. He is a very experienced fly angler and was keen to try the carp and bass on the fly. Despite putting the fly to some nice carp he was not successful with carp, he nearly had one but a cheeky bass rushed in and took the fly before the carp could, he did go onto catch a several bass on the fly.

Overall a very successful couple of days and with more similar booking over the coming weeks, things are right on form, typical Autumn Portugal carp fishing - hot.
