Spending a day at Encinarejo is always special and the peaceful quietness and spectacular views are just two of the reasons why I’m traveling Andalusia time an again. That two long-time friends joined in for the trip to this small but fine reservoir, made things even more enjoyable.
When we a arrived, the sun was already breaking the chill of the night mountain air and with just a little wind and some isolated clouds, conditions where almost perfect. Each of us had their own great memories (and personal bests) at this fantastic place and at first we started into different directions, eager to repeat the success of past fishing trips.
After last years disappointment about the low water levels I was relieved to find beloved spots covered and surrounded by water again and it didn’t take long to get a first bite on a Nuw Mouse K22 in compelling YGF color pattern. This flap version seemed to be just the right trigger and most bites and fish I had throughout the day came when using this fine lure.
That’s it for today. I will now grab another ice-cold beer and some tapas before getting back to sleep (it’s raining cats and dogs since hours). Tomorrow I will try my luck at Navallaña again. Let’s see if I can finally pass the “fifty” mark on my deck.
I also recorded some first footage using the GoPro camera during yesterdays trip, but it might take some time to sort through the recordings. Need to see if I can cut something that is worth putting on the blog.
