There are so many locations in the UK where anglers can go fishing. And whether the preference is for salt water fishing by the sea or off the coast, or for freshwater fishing in lakes, lochs, rivers or other freshwaters, the UK is renowned some of the finest fishing available anywhere. For those not so keen to fish there is always amazing walks along the river banks or beaches if it's sea fishing that your friends are after.

And while some people, particularly the men but also women, sometimes like to head off for a day’s secluded fishing on their own, it is otherwise a very sociable and relaxing sport, especially afterwards when each regales the other about the 'one that got away'. Better still to eat the catch of the day - holiday houses are well equipped for self-catering and often have a barbecue for alfresco dining outside.
