Hotels That Offer Fishing Breaks
Fishing is an ever popular hobby with many youngsters being introduced to the sport by their fathers or grandfathers. It is a pastime which can be either relaxing or quite intense if taken to the competitive level.
There are a number of different disciplines as far as fishing is concerned, one of which is game fishing which includes catching some varieties of edible fish such as Salmon or Trout although today many fishermen are increasingly returning their catch to the water to help to maintain the fish population. Game fishing was once known as the sport of gentlemen. Big game fishing is generally enjoyed from a boat at sea with popular big game fish including Marlin, Tuna and Swordfish.
Coarse fishing refers to fishing for a wide range of fresh water fish, other than game fish, including Barbel, Bream, Carp, Chub, Perch, Pike and Rudd.
In the UK there are many hotels and areas throughout Scotland, England and Wales which are a fisherman`s delight as they specialise in offering fishing holidays catering for not only coarse and game fishing, but many coastal resorts also organise sea fishing trips. Several of these hotels also offer tuition for the novice fisherman.
Scotland is an excellent venue for Salmon, Sea Trout and the Wild Brown Trout and fishing in Perthshire along the River Tay is hugely popular, with hotels including the Tayside Hotel and the Ballathie House Hotel being popular destinations for fishing breaks.
Further south, the River Eden in the Lake District abounds with Salmon and Sea Trout amongst others and Warwick Hall at Cumbria and The Tufton Arms in Appleby are popular for fishing holidays in this area.
At the other end of the country, the Lostwithiel Hotel Golf and Country Club near Bodmin in Cornwall has three coarse fishing lakes whilst the Fox & Hounds Country Hotel in Chulmleigh, Devon specialises in fly fishing.
Another beautiful part of England, famous for its fishing, is the Wye Valley running into the Monmouth area. There are idyllic fishing spots along this stretch of water which runs through some superb countryside – rolling hills, meadows and the magnificent Forest of Dean. The accommodation in this area is varied as there are camping and caravan sites as well as many hotels, examples of which include the Angel at Abergavenny or the Tudor Farm House Hotel at Clearwell.
If you have decided to fish the Wye Valley and Monmouth, there are a wide range of cheap hotels in Chepstow and the surrounding area from which to choose.
