Fishing Getaway Guide | UK Fishing holiday guide


There is nothing finer than getting away from it all and taking a holiday that involves your hobby or passion. If your passion is fishing then you have so much choice in the UK. A week or more away is the ultimate dream for many fishermen and especially the specimen hunters out there. So where should you be thinking of going?

Fishing Holiday UKWell the choice is huge, but Cornwall is always one of the nation`s favourite places for both a holiday and a fishing trip. Great places to stay, great places to see and a lot of new fisheries. Bude, Launceston and the Tamar Valley let you enjoy both game and coarse fishing in abundance. If sea fishing is your thing then the beach fishing here for bass is some of the best in the country, but you do not even have to stop on the beach. Get out in a boat and you can go wreck fishing and also shark fishing. Time to tackle up for those congers. They can be monsters!

Wales is also fast developing a reputation as a good place to take a fishing holiday. A short hop across the border you can take advantage of the wealth of new fishing places in Cardiff, Newport and the Brecon Beacons. Now that is a spectacular place to be when you are sitting on a bank side. You could even try your hand down in the prolific Port Talbot area or the new exclusive venues out in West Wales. The Lougher Estuary in the evenings is also one of the most magical places to be.

Of course if you want to go to the heart of angling in the UK the Midlands is one of the best areas to take a get away in. Rivers such as the Severn, Teme, Stour, Trent and Avon provide superb sport all year around. Why not take in Bewdley for a barbel fishing Mecca or the huge bags of bream and carp on the Trent by the power stations in Nottingham. Still waters are also very numerous here in places like Worcestershire, Birmingham and Leicestershire. Many are day ticket so you can be sure to be able to take your pick when you stay in the area.

Other areas that provide a perfect holiday include the Norfolk Broads, The Fens, the numerous lakes in the North of England and the amazing game fishing you can enjoy in Scotland, which is the salmon fisherman`s paradise. Whichever you chose, remember to pick a good travel agency to arrange the details. Companies such as First Choice have an excellent range of packages and accommodation that would be perfect whether travelling alone or making it into a family occasion.
