Fishing

Choose from game, sea or coarse...

Nowhere in the world are you more likely to find so much variety of first-class fishing packed into such a small country.

Just about all species are present, from Gudgeon to big hard-fighting Barbel to specimen Carp and Pike. Even a long holiday isn’t enough to sample everything!

Coarse fishing in Wales

The quality and quantity of easily available course fishing all over Wales has enormously increased during the past couple of decades. Wherever you stay, you will not be far from several good Carp venues. They inhabit all sorts of waters going right up into the mountains; some of these higher and wilder places holding surprisingly large fish. Many managed fisheries have Carp as their specialty providing excellent sport for visitors with all degrees of experience, from the novice to the expert.

Pike fishing in Wales

From the moorlands of Llyn Aled to the gentle flow of the River Wye Wales is the place to go for some great Pike fishing. Sit amongst spectacular scenery, or watching the sunset from a boat  whilst fishing the rocky, tree-lined shores of Bala Lake or Pontsticill Reservoir.

Sea Fishing in Wales

Wales has a fantastic varied coastline making for some great sea fishing. Large beaches like Porth Neigwl, Llangennith or Freshwater West are heaven to a variety of species such as bass and mullet. Visit the wilder coastlines of the Gower, Pembrokeshire and the Llŷn peninsular where monster pollack and wrasse lurk can be found. The long sandy estuaries such as the Loughor, Dyfi and Tywi provide an excellent opportunity to experience another type of fishing whilst being near the sea.
