A great day was capped with a pristine 26lb carp that is a pb for me by some distance. Thanks to Keith for your knowledge of the lake and also your general carp fishing tips – very helpful. I would recommend this trip to anyone, the scenery and the fish are stunning – will be back again same time next year hopefully.

Great 2 days fishing with Keith and Mick , 1st day was a blank , but as any one who fishes knows there are no certainty’s in life or fishing day was still enjoyable , the time went so fast even though the fish weren’t playing , 2nd day was different , with four great carp , 3x 20s and the highlight a beautiful bronze 32lb mirror . Great surroundings , peaceful, enjoyable couple of days for myself and Karl . we will be back in November or earlier .

Hi Keith
Jordan and I had a brilliant two days fishing with you. Jordan being 12 yrs old and acheiving a pb of 34lb 4oz amongst other good fish all in the 20’s was an incredible sight thanks to your expertise and knowlege of lake Chira. He learnt so much more about about carp fishing from you. And for myself who had never carp fished before a best of 29lb 4oz was superb. Regards to Mick and Carlos who helped you make it a memorable experience. With a bit of sweet talking to my wife we could be back next year.
All the best

Hi Kieth
Thanks for the best days fishing I have ever had. For some one like me who does not get out that often any more, you give the opportunity for dreams to come true!!

To catch a thirty has been an ambition for many years to get 2 and almost a 3rd in less than 8 hrs fishing is testiment to your knowledge and expertise.

29lb 6oz, 32lb 14 oz and 37lb what an amazing achievement and one I though never likely to happen!

Will see you again later this year for another visit to that beautiful venue, with monster carp and a great guide.

Unser Angeltrip fing mit einer abendheuerlichen Fahrt durch die Kanarischen Berge an. Nach einer Stunde haben wir den Stausee erreicht. Wow- ein traum für jeden Angler. Endlich mal Ruhe und nicht wie üblich 50 weiter Angler am Ufer verteilt. Wir waren alleine – super Wetter und Aussicht pur. Naja und natürlich der Karpfen. 23Pfund! Also rund um – es hat sich gelohnt. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt und spielen mit dem Gedanken mal eine ganze Woche dort zu verbringen.

Excellent day and the guys really know the lake inside out. Lovely lake & location and a good laugh in great company all topped of by a two pristine condition fish.

A 35lb 2oz Mirror for me and a 32lb 4oz Common for fishing companion John Mulvey from Ireland.

Hopefully I’ll be back!

Just got back home from a weeks holiday and managed to get out for a day’s fishing with Keith and Lol. Had 1 fish, a 23lb 6oz beauty that beat my pb by around 6lb. A fantastic day, in good company and I will definitely be back with my Father in Law and Brother in Law for a weeks serious fishing. Thanks guys. I had a great day and you both clearly know your stuff which made it very easy for me to catch the type of fish I’ve been fishing for for many years, without success before now.

Went fishing on the 26th February with Keith and Lol had a great time. We were lucky the weather was gorgeous and the lake is in a lovely setting so the wife was happy. It was a bonus getting 3 fish one was a fairly big billy bass and the otehrs a 19lb and 20lb carp. Keith and Lol were very friendly and helpfull which made the trip even more enjoyable. It was definitely worth the fairly hairy trip up there (not good with hieghts). Hope to go back again in the future.

We managed a trip on Saturday 20th against the odds due to the recent weather conditions, Have to thank Keith and lol for their efforts and for managing not to cry due to the cold. to put some context around it, if you look at pic 41 on the gallery our waterline was about where keiths elbow is, it was just like fishing in england with shorts on with the wind and rain.
There was so much extra water on the lake from the storms it almost had a totally different shape. It definately had a different colour !!!
Anyway, i won’t be beaten so i’ll probably try to get back around October and maybe get the bivvy’s on the lake then.

Keith, Thank you for making my vacation to Gran Canaria the adventure of a life time. You and Lowell showed up at my resort right on time. And off we went to Lake Chera. The drive to the lake was a 6000 ft clime up a beautiful scenic road with more hair pin turns then The La Mans! It’s Oblivious that Lowell is a very skilled driver. Thank God , because the ride lasted an hour and a half . Keith, your knowledge of the feeding habits of the carp was very impressive. When we started to fish, some cloud cover rolled in and the temp. dropped. You told me that the carp would be slow to bite while the air pressure was low. You were right! As soon as the sun came back out the temp. went up and the carp started to bite. The first two got off my hook however, the third time was the charm. I reeled in a 21 lb. mirror carp. The scale pattern on that fish was the most beautiful that I have ever seen. I can hardly wait to return to the beautiful island of Gran Canaria and carp fish with you again.

9 November 2009, Message from John Starbuck, United Kingdom
I have fished Chira for the past 14 years without a guide catching fish to 28 pound. This holiday was no different; I was having my three days fishing whilst on holiday with my wife. On the first day I fished the dam wall and blanked.
I packed up about 5:00pm and whist driving along the road which runs parallel with the dam, I notice a group of anglers loading their gear into a vehicle. I stopped and asked how they had done; I didn’t know the anglers I was speaking to. After a few minutes one of the anglers asked me if my name was john, I was amazed how he knew this and then he told me, I had emailed him about 4 weeks before my trip seeking information about Chira. His name was Keith and he is a fishing guide for Chira, within minutes of talking with him, he invited me to fish with him the next day to which I accepted. The following day Keith had one angler to look after, Joop from Holland. Once Joop had his rods in the water, Keith gave me some hook baits and then put them out using his bait boat. As well as the hook baits he also provided me with bait during the session at no cost to me. I catch two carp first one was 15 pounds and the second was 19.9 pounds, these aren’t big fish by Chira’s standards, but I was just pleased to have a couple of fish on the bank, I also lost one due to my line being snagged round a rock causing my line to cut on the run. Overall I had an enjoyable days fishing with Keith, his knowledge of Chira is second to none, as I said earlier I have fished Chira many times, I am now seriously considering using Keith’s services in the future.
My third and final day, I again fished the dam wall and blanked; Keith had told me where to fish without the use of a bait boat, should have listen to him!!!!!!!
May say, if you want to catch carp whilst in Gran Canaria, I would strongly recommend using Keith’s services.

After dissaponting day of sea fishing, from one of the charter boats in Puerto Rico, I was hoping to catch some good carp with Keith.
It was excellent fishing!!!
Way up to the lake was something else.
Keith really know his stuff, and he was putting much effort to make our day unforgetable. Carp fishing on lake Chira will be great escape from the beach, but take your’s misus with yee- they will have good fun to!
My girlfriend Anita except of great tan got her first carp- and it was over 16 lbr! We managed to land 9 fish, while 3 other won their fight. Only one carp weighting just a touch short of 10 lbs. I got two carp over 21 lbs, and one lovely pattern carp of 27lbs, 12oz! That fish won the title- Catch of the Day!!!
So If you thinking to give it a go- just do it!
Keith’s professional guiding service with fishing in breathtaking surraundings of lake Chira, will make your day, one of the best fishing experiences! And believe me, I know what I’m talking about, as I’m angling guide myself.
Thanks Keith and well done! pics. on the way…

Had two days with Keith at Lake Chira (21 & 24th Oct 2009) and had a fantastic time. Best fish for me was 27lb 9oz which is way beyond my best in the UK. Keith really does know his stuff. Fish location, bait, end tackle etc. The Rods/gear & equipment are first class, which when you see the consistent size of the fish, it needs to be. The trip up to the lake is also an experience in itself.

Keith knows how to put the rigs on the money and soon had us producing stunning fish. I enjoyed the experience so much I had to have a second trip ,and again Keith hit the right buttons again producing 11 runs ( 10 fish ) the same as he did on the first visit. Excellent guides and great guys to get to know. Anyone thinking of trying out Gran Canaria for carp , these are the guys to contact. Thanks for everything, Steve from Sheffield , England.

Well what can i say – we had an amazing 2 days with Keith and Lol (despite the weather deciding to make history!!). Following a rather impressive piece of driving from Lol (you literally are up with the gods in the mountains), we arrived at the beautiful lake Chira. Lol and Keith set everything up for us (6 rods between 3 of us) and then began the waiting game… or so you would think basing it on the UK… however within less than an hour the alarms were screaming and we were off and running!
Over the 2 days, myself, my partner and my nephew all bagged in excess of 270lb worth of fish – all of which were in superb condition! We all smashed our personal best and experienced the fight of the Chira Carp (prepare for aching arms the next day!). All in all, an amazing experience.
Lol and Keith are extremely likeable guys who make you feel like old friends from the minute you meet them. Nothing is too much trouble and they certainly add some humour to your trip. A typical londoner, Keith has many a funny tale to tell and he kept us laughing even when the clouds moved in and the rain battered down on our 2nd day (fishing in an actual cloud is certainly an experience!! and yes, I do mean an ACTUAL cloud as you are that high up).
We had a fab time and will defintiely be back for a longer stay next time.
Keep up the great work guys and see you in 2010 :0)

vielen Dank für die zwei wunderschönen und erfolgreichen Nachmittage am Lake Chira am 21. und 25. August 2009.
Deine Organisation, Ausrüstung, Gewässerkenntnis und Taktik ist perfekt, das hätte ich so nicht für möglich gehalten.
11 super schöne Karpfen in nur 10 Stunden Angelzeit zu fangen ist sicherlich aussergewöhnlich. Und wenn ich daran denke, daß wir beim ersten Angeltag nahezu 42 Grad Celsius hatten, ist es schier unfassbar, daß wir so klasse gefangen haben. Über die Full Scale Schönheiten des Sees ist genug geschrieben worden, die Bilder sprechen für sich.
Nochmals vielen Dank, wir werden uns wieder sehen.

Thanks Carp Crew for a great afternoon session on 10th of Aug. You truely cater for the experienced and the novice as this trip with my father – a carp fishing newbie proved. Keith worked hard all day to get us on the fish and provided all the support my dad needed when he found himself connected to a strong angry carp. With seven runs and six fish landed (3 each) we had a selection of good fighting weight fish to 24lb 8ozs. Dada lost the last fish of the day which he recoked was a monster – a carp angler now see!
Great lads, great company, great lake with hard fighting pretty carp.
Without a doubt we will be back and I think i’ll be swapping my annunal french trip for a cheeky week up here in the mountains of gran canaria!!

Hi Kieth & Gary.
Many thanks for another totally entertaining 2 days on chira whilst on my 2009 visit to gran canaria.
Day one saw me fishing with your other guests robert from ireland and johan from the netherlands, 2 guys that helped to make the day so enjoyable,
2 fish to myself 1 ofwhich was very close to my PB at 27LB 15OZ (could have been 30 if I taken so long , I know guys!!)(ha ,ha) the other at 24lb
the only dissapointment of the day was to see rob lose 2 good fish but managed to get one at the end of the day, johan also had a good day with some good fish getting landed, and not a turtle in site WELL DONE LADS !!

Day 2 saw a quiet start then went hectic with run after run at one point
fishing with robert and his pal from norway, 8 fish were landed with myself landing 4 fish of 14LB 6OZ,24LB, 23LB & 23LB 8OZ with the other guys landing similar sized fish
another fun filled day on chira for all

can only say THANKS A MILLION to KIETH
and GARY (your enthusiasm is infectious, and your willingness to help is excellent)

CHEERS GUYS see you in2010

although i knew about carp on gran canaria and visiting the presa de chira during my vacation last year,i never expected to fish or even to catch carp there.
this year we would go to gran canaria again on vacation.
with a litle pushing from my wife (glad she did) i mailed keith about the fishing options and gave him a call when i arrived on the island.
thursday 16 july was the date and the pick up on 12:30 together with harry (from scotland?) and rob from ireland and the canary crew we went to the lake.
During the ride keith was teasing me as he told me that the dutch always catch a turtle on the lake and I did saw a smile on the faces of my colleague fisherman…please no turtle today.
keith did a great job with his bait and feed and the baits were dropped on the hot spots as we found out later on.
the conditions were good, cloudy sky not to hot only the wind changed from directions all the time.
carp was roling and jumping on the feeding places and round 5 o´clock pm ( i think) they started to bite and we were catching carp!!
too bad that robert lost two possible p.b´s during the drill.
harry had the day´s best and i was lucky to have 2 twenty´s and a smaller one.
Robert catched the last fish of the day and although it was no p.b you earned a fish.
Guys I thank you for the pleasant day with lots of laugh and a small tear because of the lost fish of Robert.
Keith you did a great job and your experience on the lake brought us the fish.
Professional from start to end. I will sure be back for another day(s) of fishing.
Hopefully next year?
Thanks canary crew for a great fishing day

Hou je van karpervissen en ga je naar gran canaria ? reserveer een dag (of meer) bij Keith super geregeld en professioneel begeleid eten drinken hengels voer alles is geregeld ophelen en terugbrengen en de kans op een 30er of 40er is zeker aanwezig.

Succes johan

Hi Keith,
just wantrd to say thanks for another great day out, I lost 2 cracking carp & got a p.b you cant get better than that on a day trip, learnt a hell of a lot on the trip into the bargain, if you read this & are thinking of a day out whilst on holiday do yourself a favour and sign up for a day out you wont be disapointed, Keiths a great angler & a great laugh to be with and will really look after you in every way, from pick up on time to supplying food & drink etc he,ll even put you on fish!
I had a terrific time, fished with Harry from Yorkshire 2 fish to 26lbs the second one was 30lb when first hooked, but weighed 26lb by the time Harry landed it (typical matchman)!!
Only teasing Harry your a better angler than i,ll ever be.
Also along was Johanne from Holland who also landed 2 up to 24lb a really nice guy, who entered into the spirit of the occasion & knows a lot more about carping than most including me, thanks guys for your company & thanks again Keith hope to see you again late February mate, keep up the good work

Hi Guys,
Just for those of you have read the feed back from the blind man ( well after his performace not sure) Ha Ha
I am the guy that lost more fish than caught….
But i have to say what a tonic it was, given i was on holiday at the time of the start of the season and was missing out on some barbel bashing on the trent, i was able to blag the family to not need my sand castle building skills for the day and go fishing.
Well what a day brilliant location, great angling skills from Keith (comes from been a match man i am sure) and entertainment value from the group. Had some nice fish lose a few (soft lips!!! fish a distance and they put up a great fight.
I would highly recommend EVERYONE who is into fishing for any fish if you are on the Island to contact Keith and give it a go.
Guys thanks for a great day, just what was needed, mall thanks for the leason on how to catch firsh and LAND them.
Been back on the trent just to let you know had 17 barbel biggest 14lb 7oz so not feeling too bad now..

Happy days !

hi Keith,Chris n Steve thanks for all your help again durin my weeks fishin had a excellent week 25/30 fish lost bout 15 and let people have fish om my rods too can only describe it in one word MINT!!!!!As always Keith you looked after me again just trying to think of another illness so Ican blag another weeks holiday see you in November Tight Lines Matt!
23 June 2009, Message from Malcolm Elrick, United Kingdom
I thought I would start by talking about the whole experience which started from the pick from a cockney and a brummie(sorry Chris) more like dick and Dom. The other person who was joining us was a river bailiff on the Trent who was on holiday. I cannot name him for reasons later.

The drive through the mountains was an experience in itself and I could not appreciate the beauty that was surrounding me or the fantastic views again you need to read this for the explanation at the end.

when we got to the lake which nests in a hollow of the montain range well you can only imagine the dramatic sense of everthing that nature has to offer the quietness and the feeling of being the only ones on the planet.

Keith and Chris set up the tackle four lines baited and the boat carrying the lurs.

We tossed a coin and I had first honour.

Within the first hour I was on to my first fish and remembering everything Keith told me and with my hieghtened sense of feel(wait for the explanation) I landed my first fish a 22lb mirrior carp. What an experience. The other guest then landed a 19lb carp. I then followed in with a 24.7lb.
After that we both had a bites almost at the same time he landed a 15lb carp and I landed a 26.8lb.

From there on unfortunately for the guest it went down hill. He lost the next fish, had the bite after that and lost it, I then followed in with a 28.6lb carp then he lost the nexst one and the final bite of the day he lost that one.

I turned in over a hundred pound in four fish to his thirty four.

This is not my first sport love that is golf and I am currently the national blind yes I mean the current national blind golf champion of England.

I have not fished for years and only dabbled then with the aid of my sons and a minocular.

So this was a real challenge for Kieth and Chris who have never fished with a blind person before.

All the credit goes to you guys for one of the best days I have ever enjoyed and although I have sea fished in gran canaria this is an ecperience that will stay with me for a long time and maybe I just think about it for the future.

To the other guest hard luck mate and if you ever fancy a game of golf let me know or maybe you might invite me to your neck of the woods

The location, tackle and excellent food rolled together with your knowledge of the water and hard fighting fish made for the best days carp fishing ive ever had!
Cant wait to come back to pull some more out, maybe get another PB.

Tight lines, and thanks again.

I’m no fisherman, but still had an excellent afternoon. Highly recommended for anglers AND non-anglers. The journey to the lake was an excursion in itself. Scenery and the company of Keith and Steve a bonus, and as for the BLT sandwiches – best food I had in Gran Canaria without a doubt!!!
Thanks for a good time – see you again soon.

Hi Kieth ,Gary and steve.
what better way is there for an angler on holiday, than to spend a Afternoon on chira talking about fishing, in great company with food and a couple of beers

Then, when the sun goes down ,catching a P.B OF 26lb 4oz (after losing 1 in a snag,it happens)

What is better than the above is another afternoon in the same company,same conversation ,a couple more beers and
another P.B OF 28 Lb 6 oz

The next time I’ll be on Gran Canaria I’ll go after a 40 lbs.
Thanks to Gary and Steve, I’ll see you.

To all who reads this, you owe yourself a karpe fishing tour with Keith.

Even carp virgins can catch fish..

After an hour with Keith showing us the setups, no float to watch, no tip bending, had a sandwich and drink then bloody hell – it was like screaming reels!!

1’st fish 30 lbs. 3 times my previous best. It was like draging a small donkey in, but better looking. Did a lap of honour!!

Cought another 25pounder, wife caught 22.5 & 21.

What a lovely afternoon..

Just want to say thanks again for a great trip. Really enjoyed myself and could reccomend the trips highly enough. It’s good to see that you guys are still catching very well with some good 30s to boot. Am hopefully going to get myself back over in a few months for a proper session. Keep on catching them and look out for the article in International Carper. I have had an article about Chira published in Carpa X Tutti (Italy) and Kapri Svet (Czech).

See you soon.

15 May 2008, Message from Trees, Fred en Han , Netherlands
After 2 days of no catch and a quick lesson from Keith our carpsession turned into a nice fishingtrip. The first from Han was 33 pnd, later Trees with 29,5 pnd and Fred with 18 pnd. The following days were great, with even more nice carps. Also some lost. There is a big change that we will come back next year. Thanks Keith for everything.
13 May 2008, Message from Trevor J Pywell, United Kingdom
Hi Keith, Thanks for a fantastic day. 95lb in 4 fish cannot be bad. It started with a personal best for me of 30lb! Thrilling stuff, it brings a smile back to my face just thinking about the excitement of hearing the beeper start up and the line stripping off the reel as another monster takes the bait and heads for deep water.
Hope to see you again for another session very soon. Kind regards

Hallo visvrienden,

Hier even een berichtje van en fervent karpervisser. We waren dit najaar 14 dagen op Gran Canaria. Heerlijk eiland, mooi strand, prachtig weer maar na een week op het strand liggen ga je de karpers wel missen. Ik zag een flyer van een karpersessie. Nou dat moest natuurlijk gebeuren. Alles was inclusief; hengels, aas, vervoer van hotel naar visstek en terug etc. Nou ik heb een onvergetelijke dag gehad. Veel dank aan de visgidsen want een karper van 25 pond was eht eindresultaat. Ik kan elke karpervisser aanraden te boeken.
