Fishing In Wales

Wales is a hugely popular destination for fishing due to its astounding 750 miles of coastal views and bountiful rivers, lakes and streams. Whether it be fly fishing, coarse angling or sea fishing, there are plenty of spots for beginners and advanced anglers alike to cast their reels and catch their favourite fish.

From the vast, calming lakes in the North, flowing rivers in the South, or the famous piers across the rest of the coastline, Wales is proud to be one of the best places to fish in the UK. It may even be the case that choosing exactly where to fish is more challenging than actually catching them!
