Fishing

If you're looking for a fishing break, then you won't be disappointed when visiting the UK. There are hundreds of amazing places to fish across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Just some of the fish you can catch include Pike, Salmon, Silver Bream, Sea Trout and many more. Visitors can try out sea fishing, game fishing or coarse fishing and hopefully get the catch of the day!

If you want to find out about legal information on fishing in the UK please visit the UK Government's website.

Pubs and inns in the UK offer fishing lovers the perfect base to enjoy a relaxing holiday and make the most of their time away. Guests can start the day with a hearty home cooked breakfast and perhaps even enjoy a packed lunch from the pub. Rooms are comfortably styled with en-suite bathrooms and luxury facilities such as flat screen TVs and tea and coffee making facilities. After a great day out you can relax in the pub, enjoy a few drinks, tuck into to some scrumptious traditional pub food and then head to your room upstairs, just a stone's throw away.

Here are some of our favourite fishing destinations in the UK:

Sutherland, Scotland
Located in the Scottish Highlands, Sutherland is the quintessential angling destination. It is the kind of place where isolation and beauty are joined together by green, sloping hills that overlook icy lochs and empty fields. The Assynt Angling Club is a great source of information for anglers. Collaborating with eight landowners, the club offers access to over a hundred lochs in the area. People come from all over the world to fish in the lochs in Sutherland for their world class brown trout.

Whitby, England
The beautiful harbour town of Whitby is the getaway to some of the best sea fishing in the UK. Whitby is one of the oldest fishing ports in the nation and is full of great fishing stories; it’s where Captain James Hook was actually introduced to the life of a seaman after his first working stint as a shopkeeper’s assistant didn’t work out. Whitby is one of the best locations for charter boat fishing in the UK and still holds the record for the heaviest cod caught on rod and line in British waters, weighing in at an incredible 58lb 7ounces!

Northumberland, England
With beautiful rivers, lakes, and an entire coastline to explore, Northumberland is a hotbed for angling options. Thanks to a highly successful hatchery program, Tyne salmon stocks have boomed in the last 15 years and the river now competes with some of the best that even Scotland has to offer. Generally regarded as the best salmon river in England, the North Tyne also produces very large Salmon. With the average size most seasons being in double figures, 20lb fish are relatively common, with salmon in the 30 to 40lb range a distinct possibility.

Below are a list of pubs and inns that are great to base yourself for a fishing break.
