Sitting by the water, watching the current flow past, hearing the birds and wildlife, patiently waiting for that ever elusive bite – is there anything better than a fishing holiday? The British countryside has an abundance of lively, calm, or challenging fishing, and fishing might be the perfect way for you to spend a part of your holiday.
Renting a holiday cottage in the country opens up to you a huge number of diverse and previously unobtainable pursuits for a brief snatch of time, so make the most of it and enjoy that traditional country pursuit: fishing. Spending all the day by the water is only bettered by coming home to a comfortable cottage and delicious supper in the local pub - all achievable with us. Take a large party out with you, enjoy a picnic with the whole family, then all pitch in fishing.
A fishing holiday is (obviously) not an exclusively country pursuit: rent a cottage by the sea, or up in Scotland by one of its saltwater lochs and this can result in some of the most beautiful fishing. Sitting in a boat, gently rocked by the waves, could be the perfect way for you to escape the pressures and demands of daily life, concentrating solely on something requiring little to no technology and simple old-fashioned good sense.
