From Wales to Spain for rack of common carp

Welsh pair Ethan Thomas and John Flewin battled a raging River Ebro to bag some winter whackers in Spain.

The duo jetted off to the well-known European waterway with Ebro Fishing Dreams and landed a succession of commons to just under 30lb after moving more than 100 miles in search of fish.

“The river and conditions were definitely against us and we were fully aware that this was going to be a hard trip,” said John. “After a hard first few days with fish being lost to some of the flotsam and jetsam that had been carried downstream we managed to get on the fish by moving to a more sheltered area.”

The pair used CR1 baits fished snowman style on basic KD rigs tied with Vardis components.
