Fishing Overseas In the Midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic makes traveling challenging locally let alone going overseas. Some countries do not allow foreigners to enter their country at all. Some require the foreign traveler to quarantine for 14 days at their own expense. There are a few countries that allow foreign travelers to enter on the condition that they show an official vaccinated QR code upon arrival at customs and immigration.
Luckily, I was able to spend a few days in Spain this past late October to visit my friends who operate a fishing "bed and breakfast" guiding business. My main purpose was to get out of my house and office to be in the outdoors with Mother Nature. Cooped up in one place affects one's mental health if it hasn't driven you crazy already.
My friends, Bennie and Monique, operate Ebro Total Fishing near the Ebro River in Caspe, Spain. Not only did I get to spend time with their clients watching them having fun hauling in their catches. I also enjoyed the meals Monique prepared for all her guests and spending time with both of them to catch up since I last saw them in 2010. Getting to fish was a bonus. The long flight and train ride to their fishing "lodge" were well worth the trip.
Next time if you are considering traveling overseas to go fishing, do check out Ebro Total Fishing and book your trip there. Most if not all of their clients are repeats. They treat them like VIPs. You can tell from their smiling faces.
