FOLLOWING the summer break, the Teulada-Moraira Fishing Club’s first outing was to the Jucar’s E2.
Recent heavy rains had swelled the river considerably and deposited large amounts mud on the banks to a height that more than one metre above the normal levels.
Surprisingly, the river had settled back to a level that was close to normal although the colour of the water was thick and heavy with quite a strong and club members approached the day’s fishing with some apprehension.
The first hour produced only one fish between seven anglers and fears of a blank day abounded.
However, fish gradually began to feed and a reasonable day’s fishing was enjoyed by all members, with Steve Hartwell the overall winner with eight fish weighing in a 40lbs (roughly 18.1 kilos).
Jacques Janssen caught eight fish with a total weight of 35lbs 5oz (almost 16 kilos).
“We are a friendly club and always happy to welcome members,” the organisers said.
