"I arrived at Marrakech and as ever Joseph was on time and happy to chat on the journey up towards BEO, once we were heading into the hills I couldn't help but notice the stark difference from my last trip in October, there's water in the streams and rivers, everything is green and the whole place just looks full of life. Anyway I'm sure you know t...

CATCH REPORT - APRIL 2018

CATCH REPORT - APRIL 2018
APRIL- the month where BEO transforms from its usual glorious deep, rich clay reds, to the fresh tones of greens and yellows, typical colours of spring in the Moroccan Atlas Mountains! Quite likely the most picturesque month to be present on BEO, the valleys surrounding the lake are presently alive with lush green meadows and beautiful beds of yell...

CATCH REPORT - MARCH 2018

Catch report March 2018
Following the harsh weather of Jan and Feb this year, the abnormally large snow fall and heavy rains within the region of BEO and the surrounding Atlas Mountains continued on into March, however slightly less snow but greater rainfall this month.

CATCH REPORT - FEBRUARY 2018

Catch Report February 2018
Following the rather unsettled weather of January, we went into February unsure whether the abnormally high snow fall and cold temps had finished for the winter or not! As it turns out we experienced a greater snow fall in the higher Atlas Mountains in Feb and consequently this has had the obvious effects on the carp fishing that one would expect w...

CATCH REPORT - JANUARY 2018

Catch Report - January 2018
It feels like January has shot by, and as ever the past month on BEO has been eventful, we've seen some great fish caught, some hugely challenging periods of weather with some guys struggling to get the fish to feed, whilst others have got lucky and gone home with the ultimate BEO bars of gold! ​ Nothing on BEO is plain sailing and we've taken the ...

CATCH REPORT - DECEMBER 2017

26112360_2037869226470543_4974172728824898065_n
This past month has shot by and we've had some impressive results along the way. Water levels had finally just started to rise in our last catch report back in November, following a much needed heavy rain fall, it felt we had all been blessed with the rain we'd all longed for. BEO has been hit by a few years of drought and sadly a greater demand fo...

It's December, the weather outside is cold and the summer rays seem a thing of the past, the early darkness has arrived and going to and from work in darkness. It's such a depressing time of year. I have just returned from what can only be described as a step into another world, a holiday with Morocco Carp, a wild carp fishing tour operat...

As reported last month, BEO for the past year has endured the effects of a major drought, thats swept throughout much of Africa, especially North Africa. On a very small local scale ...

CATCH REPORT - OCTOBER 2017

Grant Downward, BEO Main Guide
Occasionally in the wonderful world of carp fishing you just have a quiet spell, this pretty much sums up the past month on BEO! September got off to a flying start, with guys catching multiple numbers of fish all around the lake, with a good percentage of fish over 20k.. October has always proven to be more productive than September so it's been q...

Tadej Kostomaj - Bin el Ouidane
THE BEST OF AFRICA   There must have been a point in time for each and everyone of us, devoted fishermen, when we would sit by the water and dream about all the possible destinations we could visit in the future, that would enrich our experiences and broaden our horizons. To us, carp lovers, fishing is not only catching fish, but also a deep c...

I am not sure if the reality of what happened has sunk in yet. Fishing Lake BEO has been a dream of mine that finally came true on 27 April this year when I boarded a plane to Morocco. Flying form South Africa and being the first person visiting from SA, this was an unknown trip with some hiccups along the way. Firstly, I had the security at Doha A...

​I've had my eye on Bin el Ouidane for quite a few years now. The main thing that had stopped me from going in the past was the amount of small fish. The like looked incredible but catching 100 small commons with one or two maybe above 10kg wasn't enough to convince me it was worth the effort so I just stuck to the public lakes and rivers in France...

CATCH REPORT - DECEMBER 2016

Wow what a month! We got off to a flying start in October with over 400 fish caught and with a number of very big fish over 26k! Our new fishmeal atlas 2.0 boillies were doing fantastically, the new vortex 2.85 boats and vortex 55lb thrust motors / lowrance fishfinders were performing great along with all our new equipment, and all clients were goi...
