  1. Having just returned from fishing in Spain I have had a great time. Many mirror and common carp were caught on a regular basis of a good size that never knew when to stop fighting as well as barbel of around five to six pounds. The accommodation was excellent and transportation from and back to the airport was spot on. Breakfasts and evening meals were at the local restaurant and very reasonably priced. We were well looked after by Alan of Extremadura fishing holidays who has a wealth of local knowledge of the lakes in and around Talarrubias surrounded by beautiful unspoiled scenery.

    We were taken daily to the most productive areas to fish and helpful advice was always readily available. Overall we all had a wonderful time and I would certainly want to return again having seen a specimen 42lb common carp caught that very morning. The area offers great potential and exiting fishing for carp, tench, barbel and crucians of a very impressive size. Thanks Alan for making it a great fishing holiday.

  2. That Alan, what can I say. His dedication, expertise and attention to detail is way beyond what we expected, out with us everyday showing us how and where. Alan picks us up and drives us to the days venue, he is on hand as you tackle up with his knowledge of the best rigs the best bait and the best place to put it.
    I can not speak too highly of Alan and his setup, he made sure we had a swell time, in this idyllic fishing haven, and always time for a beer on the way home. The man delivered the best fishing holiday we have ever had.
    Thanks Alan, Tony

  3. Well Alan where do I start the first thing I would like to say from me and all the lads is we had a ball thanks to you the beer was cold, the snails , frogs legs, pig tails, and the chicken ass were great haha. Now to the fishing what can I say we all caught carp from 5lb up to my 40lb not bad for a bunch of lads who has never ever fished for carp in there lives we cannot thank you enough. Hope to see you next year but I have to sweeten up the wife up first take care mate hope to see you soon.

  4. This was my second trip with Alan at Extremadura Fishing. Yet again he did not disappoint, the weather was great the craic was great and I caught my new P.B. 54lb wild mirror from Orellana need I say more.
    if you want a fantastic fishing holiday book a week or two with Alan you will not be disappointed, plus at the end of the day if you threaten to break his arm he will buy you a beer (joking)

  5. I suppose you are always slightly sceptical of these fishing holidays – in this case don’t be !! Could not have been better. I was looking for a tour to celebrate my retirement. I had discounted Catfish trips as too much propensity to get ripped off, I came across Alan in my research. Everything was as promised. No hidden extras, no bait charges , and Alan picked us up at Madrid Airport bang on time. The fishing was excellent, through discussion with Alan we fished 5 different venues over 6 days. Spectacular scenery – mountains , valleys, huge dams and lakes and a variety of wildlife not seen at home. We caught a mixed bag, mainly Carp with a few small Barbel thrown in together with those massive Spanish Crucians, our best went over 3 lb. Everything is 2lb plus and fights like no tomorrow. Our biggest Carp went 33lb to the tour non-angler !! Lots of doubles thrown in. Alan brings all your gear in a trailer and helps you set up. He will even spod your swim for you. I would bring a tackle box of your own with Polaris floats, method feeders, hooklength 6 – 12lb honest , hooks etc and snips etc . Alan does provide all tackle but its easier to have your own bits. Fresh lunch and beer in the sun whilst fishing does not get any better !! Alan will pick you up each morning at a time to suit and stay on the bank as long as you want. We chucked the towel in about 5-6pm each evening then there is a nice stop at a bar on the way home for a beer..or two… We stayed at the hotel in Talarrubias which was very well appointed, big rooms available as twins or we paid a 35 euro supplement (5 euro a night !) to have single rooms all en-suite. Very friendly staff in the hotel in Jose behind the bar. By day 3 we had him cooking eggs and bacon after offering us a cake for breakfast on day one !! Price wise you will be surprised if you have never been to rural Spain, its as cheap as chips. There is a good variety of restaurants and you can eat out with a beer or two for 10 euros a head. With every round of drinks you get Tapas (small snacks) so if you have 4 beers you can get a free meal effectively if you are not so hungry. We went late September and it was 30 + degrees every day with one day of cloud in 7. Overall bl–dy marvellous, we will be back hopefully next year. If anyone would like to contact me to discuss or ask questions I am more than happy – markwhitham@sky.com So thanks Alan and Sue we had a blast and Alan get those northern reels sorted out !!! Overall well done for doing what it says on the tin.

  6. Thanks Alan, me,dad,scott and johnny (del boy) had a fantastic week,you made us feel very welcome from the start.The house was perfect,a bedroom each,which was a bonus,especially the way that lot snore !. The fishing was great,some nice fish caught by all in fantastic surroundings and the beer and tapas in Jesus`s an exellent way to end the day.All ready looking forward to next year ! Adios for now, Dave.

  7. A massive thanks to Alan for his hospitality and knowledge of the fishing in the local areas. Myself and 4 others Fran Dave Sam and Webbo from (Cas).
    we all caught fish every day and with water levels very low and scorching temperatures 40 – 43 degrees you get a feel for what this place could produce given better conditions. The last day myself and Dave tried some Bass fishing from Stefan’s boat, we landed 5 decent sized Bass and lost probably as many again. A good days fishing but not the cheapest an extra 150.00 euros for 2 people.
    mostly carp caught but boy do they go especially on the rivers.
    I can thoroughly recommend Alan and this fishing experience.

  8. Alan – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – Our 3rd trip which I suppose sums it up. Fishing was difficult but weather for early October was pretty good. The craic was mighty and 4 euros for a cheeseburger and chips and 1 euro a beer can’t get any better. The hotel was marvellous as usual and the scenery, wildlife and fishing venues were unsurpassed (sorry big word for a Northerner Al) We particularly enjoyed the overnight trip to the Crazy Lake where we caught well.
    Tackle shops outstanding and if we could just f– about for a bit longer in the mornings it would be perfect. Alan hope to be back for a big girl in April – will take you out in the UK in the winter as long as you dont catch any trout…….. speak soon – Mark

  9. Scott and I had a really good time despite the excessive temperatures (42c plus) and low water levels. The fishing was good and we all caught plenty of fish but I it think it would be even better when the levels rise and the temp’s ease a little. The fish are very aggressive on the take and we all came close to loosing our rods (I mean Alan’s rods).The carp fight all the way to the net including the crucians. Already thinking about our next trip and may be some barbel and tench. We thank Alan for his hospitality and look forward to seeing him again.

    Viva la España
    Pierwsza, ale nie ostatnia wyprawa nad bajeczną rzekę Gwadiana w prowincji Badajoz, w regionie Estremadury w Hiszpanii – dobiegła końca. Szokujące i zapierające dech w piersiach widoki, mnóstwo dzikiej przyrody i oczywiscie piękne ryby. Jest czym oddychać. To wszystko w jednym miejscu.
    Różnorodność gatunków ryb w rzece jest ogromna. Od karpi po brzany comizo, od szczupaka po bassa, od suma po longear sunfish 😊.
    Kilka zdjęć z wyprawy. Dzięki bardzo Robert Mayall.

    Viva la España
    The first, but not the last trip to the fabulous Guadiana River in the province of Badajoz, in the Extremadura region of Spain – has come to an end. Shocking and breathtaking views, lots of wildlife and, of course, beautiful fish. All in one place.
    The variety of fish species in the river is huge. From carp to comizo barbel, from pike to bass, from catfish to longear sunfish 😊. Highly recommend. Few photos from the trip. Thanks very much Robert Mayall.

  11. just back from my 10th trip too Extremadura and was as good if not better than the first ones.
    Unfortunately the weather was not the best on this trip but this did not stop us catching fish,we had strong winds and rain for several days which was unusual for this time of year but Alan and Rob knew the best places to go to shelter from the wind and rain,and to put us on the fish,The team is now Alan and Rob both doing excellent work making sure we had a great time. Nothing was to much trouble for them great hosts would recommend to anyone. I’m already looking forward to my next trip later in the year.
    Thank you guys
