The River Ebro in Northern Spain is home to some of the absolute best examples of Cats and Carp when it comes to size and stamina. These wild specimens never fails to impress and inspire me. Over the years I have fished all over the world and have had the pleasure of catching some absolutely stunning fish but I never tire or lose that sense of childhood excitement when, after a tremendous and exhausting battle that could last what may seem like an eternity, you catch sight, at the end of your line, a monster to rival that of any you have ever seen. You stomach aches and your body shakes until, at last, you have managed to present it onto the bank. It is then and only then you truly know what it is like to be a warrior. This is what it truly means to be an angler and this is why I love the Ebro. If you would like to experience fishing like this or just want to learn more about the Ebro and what it has to offer, please get in touch and let us know how we can help make this dream a reality for you. Tight lines, Nick

" I always had it in my mind that when I fished the Ebro again I would do it through Nick Shattock and I’m so pleased that I did. Nick’s style of guiding and fishing means that he knows the river as well as anyone and his results show that. He is always looking to get the best for his customers and he’s probably the hardest working guide I know. In tough conditions he looked at several options until he found the right one and we had a great trip! I wouldn’t hesitate to go with Nick again, besides being good company, he’s a great cook too and he was as excited as me when the alarms sounded … Nick’s aim is to help people catch and have a trip that they will remember for a long time ….. and that’s exactly what happened - thanks Nick!!!"
