What to bring for carp and catfish fishing  
Spain offers all the equipment needed for the serious angler, although we still recommend that you bring certain terminal and clothing items with you so you can get straight on with the fishing. This page details the recommended items for fishing on the Ebro for cats or carp.
Main Fishing Tackle

On the tackle front, you have two options. Firstly we can provide you with top quality cat and carp equipment for rent. Most of our cat equipment comprises a Sportex rod and Shimano multiplier loaded with braid. If you are a carp fisherman, then we can offer superb package including all the essentials less your terminal gear. All the terminal gear is available at excellent prices at our tackle shop in Mequinenza.

More and more frequently anglers who are more commited to fishing on the Ebro are starting to buy their tackle. This saves on rental costs, and you have the added assurance of becoming familiar with your equipment. All of these factors often add up to more fish on the bank. Our new tackle shop offers everything you might need for the Ebro at superb prices. The tackle that we recommend has been tested on the water and you can be confident it will perform.

Catfish Tackle Bait

If you are carp fishing, we recommend that you pre-order your particles and boilies through us. If you want we can introduce them into a suitable area prior to your arrival so you can get stuck into fish more quickly. We are currently using bait from Dynamite Baits. Prices of boilies and particles vary depending on your requirements and we can advise you of these options when you book.

Halibut pellets are becoming increasingly popular for catfish, who now recognise these as a valid food source on both the upper and lower lake. These pellets in the smaller sizes are also extremely effective for the carp.

For carp, we recommend a heavy duty continental hook of around size 4-6. Mainline should be at least 15lbs and of high quality. Rigs are usually quite straight forward, and the "snowman" is recommended.

Cat rigs comprise of a hair / bolt for pellet fishing as well as free roving and fixed (buoy) livebait rigs.
