Ebro Maniacs

A mad, manic adventure to Spain’s legendary River Ebro in the company of two of England’s best specimen anglers.

Ian ‘Chilly’ Chillcott is desperate to catch his first 100lb catfish and he thinks he can beat it on his normal carp tackle. Mark has been here before and after a bit of a travel disaster he is more interested in catching his first 30lb common carp.

There are huge, hard-fighting fish and laughs galore in the company of the local guides, and the boys also find time to go after the region’s barbel and zander.

After having a crack at his first ever Zander, the group cast out a few Carp rods from the bank and tell some good old fashioned, most likely exaggerated fisherman’s tales back at the campfire.
