PostSubject: Is this the way to Amarilla?   Wed Apr 17, 2013 5:17 pm

Following Fairziff's trip to check up on Sunnyrhyl's Canaries division a follow up audit was called for...
Sorted a tele rod at Geoff's and headed for the airport swapping snow drifts for 27 degrees

A week at the Hotel Aguamarina nestling between Golf Del Sur and Amarilla, South Tenerife



Lady Notbad checked the books whilst I tackled the stock taking, sabikis were dangled and spun but the only fish I managed was a washed up cuttlefish bone -still a feeesh is a feeesh







It wasn't all work and no play though, as we took a boatride out from Los Christianos so the whales could watch us,



(Fishing charters are available from here at prices comparable to Rhyl but as I'm suffering a bit with carpal tunnel problems I was sticking to light shore fishing)















"local feeesh" shoal in the harbour and along the paddle-line





the first fishing session on just sabikis had been hard going, but for round two Lady Notbad slipped some prawns from the buffet into her handbag and they made all the difference, I deployed the jif lemon float and bites were instant, first up was a bream,






Anne was keen to get in on the action



and she soon hooked into an eel but was a little too eager to land it and as it became airborne it thrashed about and slipped the hook so no photo

Couldn't let her beat me with the biggest fish so next day I was back with frozen shrimp and smoked herring offered down the same bit of rockside...



Brilliant holiday 27 degress and a gentle breeze to calm the blazing sun- just perfect bliss...
...and afterall it was only a minor international incident in the Agentinean Restaurant the day the Iron Lady died... on reflection Anne's decision to wear "Thatcher blue" may have been just a little provocative!

That looks a great place to be and all that sun and shorts, all we can do is dream about things like that. A good report and pictures. I like the new boat I bet that's going to take a bit of pulling behind the car. lol!

Must admit there were a few "when we win the lottery" boats about!

Did you try with bread for the mullet? I found they are easier to catch over there than here (unless you are that mythical fella that fishes with frozen peas).

Didn't pester the tiny mullet myself but the locals were having regular success whipping them out on a brown paste moulded around small treble hooks, the mullet seemed a lot easier to hook than the ones in turkey where the locals did indeed use bread,

Anyone know what the brown paste is?

The mullet flocked to the floats as soon as they plopped in

I'm wondering what mullet returning to Rhyl will make of the changes

Great report Paul.
Looks like you both had a wonderful time.
The fish are just a bonus seems quite apt.
Good to see Mrs Notbad giving you a good run for your money too.

Hope you didn't order the Bernaise Sauce in that Argentinian restaurant though!!!!!
See you soon!
