10 Best Fishing Holiday Destinations

Fishing is one of humanity's favourite pass times, as well as a means of survival and source of income, and sometimes an angler is compelled to head abroad for different quarry. Those planning on packing their fishing gear and heading to different shores should not forget to purchase travel insurance to protect themselves during their expedition.

1. United States of America
America has two extensive coastlines, the Atlantic coast in the east and the Pacific coast in the west, and as such there is near limitless potential for sea fishing here. Move further inland and there are countless opportunities to freshwater fish the vast lakes and extensive river systems.

2. Brazil

The Brazilian stretch of the Amazon, largest river in the world, is world-renowned for its exquisite fishing. Whether you set up rig or charter a boat, popular fish to catch include the Peacock Bass, Golden Dorado and Piraiba.

3. Scotland
Scotland is world famous for its salmon fishing, which can be caught on a fly rod in the rivers Dee, Spey, Tay and Tweed. If that was not enough, Scotland also boasts several lakes and lochs to cast a line into, as well as miles of North Sea and Atlantic coastline and outlying islands to fish off.

4. Cuba

Cuba, the island nation in the Caribbean, is world-famous for the sea fishing in its territorial waters and was a popular spot for writer Ernest Hemingway.

5. Ireland

Ireland is home to numerous lakes and rivers where trout and salmon can be had, not to mention an Atlantic coastline in the west off of which the mackerel are plentiful.

6. Spain

Of Spain's many rivers, the River Ebro, in Catalonia, is an excellent place to catch Catfish and Carp and is a popular destination for freshwater anglers.

7. Canada

Canada is home to over two hundred species of freshwater and saltwater fish, so the vast expanses of this North American nation are an ideal destination for freshwater and marine anglers alike. 

8. England

Whether you are fishing the Norfolk Broads or the Lake District, the Wensum or the Wye, freshwater anglers may catch barbel, brown trout, carp, chub, perch or pike in England, although not without a rod licence. Sea fishing, however, is a free activity as it requires no rod licence.

9. Vietnam

The Mekong River, in Vietnam, is a popular fishing holiday destination due to the sheer size of some of the fish inhabiting its waters.

10. New Zealand

New Zealand, being an island nation, has plenty of opportunities for sea fishing and further inland there is good freshwater fishing to be had.
