18 months ago I wanted to do something different, fish somewhere out of the norm and to a destination that I hadn’t visited before. My partner Katy had never been on a fishing trip with me in the past but this time she was going to come, so when I looked at Morocco it seemed perfect. We could fly to the lovely city of Marrakech, spend a couple of nights there in one of it’s beautiful riad’s, then travel to the Atlas Mountains to Lake (BEO) Bin El Ouidane, home of black bass, zander and what would be my target species African Carp with a lake record of over 70 lb.
After doing the tourist things and city sight seeing in Marrakech the time had come for our driver to pick us up to travel to the lake, a few hours later we drove over a brow and I got a first glance of her, and she is massive, to be exact over 15,000 acres at it’s fullest.
Last Saturday I fished with my local fly fishing club (Llangennech Angling) at Paper Mill Trout Fishery in Fforest-fach, Swansea for the club’s last competition of the year. With temperatures plummeting to near freezing over night the water is getting a lot colder, this makes trout fight a lot harder and this weekend was no exception. Paper Mill offered some of the hardest fighting trout I’ve caught in a long time!

We started fishing around 8.45 AM, my starting setup was an Airflo Fast intermediate fly line, approx 16ft of Airlfo G5 Fluorocarbon and a black snake fly on the end. Within my first three casts I had two pulls and a nice fish follow right to the bank, I knew by now I had the correct setup and that the fish were in the area. Ten minutes later I had my first fish on the bank, a fin perfect Rainbow trout (approx 3lb) which took the black snake half way through the retrieve. This time of year I find it’s crucial to keep varying your retrieve until you find which speed the fish are willing to take your fly at. Around twenty minutes later I had another fin perfect rainbow on the bank which gave a great fight and took me around ten minutes to land. After I had landed this fish it was time to move peg, as we rotate around every forty minutes to give all the anglers a chance to get on the fish.
