Top 6 Fishing Spots Around the World

Fishing is an activity loved by many across the globe. Not only is it a fun way to enjoy what the local area has to offer, but it can also be enjoyed by all the family for a great day out. For those fishing lovers, why not tailor your next holiday to your favourite pastime in one of these amazing destinations? Here are the top 8 fishing spots around the world:

1. Umba River, Russia

Visit Russia’s Umba river in springtime if you want to try your luck at catching a fresh salmon fish or two. This 123km-long river is home to some of the finest, fattest Atlantic salmon on earth, with up to five salmon runs per year. This isolated spot is perfect for some well-earned downtime, all you need is your travel pillow and a comfy deck chair to while away the day.

2. Amazon Basin, Brazil

Brazil offers many fishing tours for those visitors to the country who are interested in getting to know more about what’s lurking in the Amazonia waters. One of their most popular tours is the piranha fishing tour, where you’ll get to see the piranhas up close. 

3. Cairns, Australia

Australia has many lakes and plenty of freshwater spots to enjoy some holiday fishing. The beautiful 250km stretch between Cairns and Lizard Island is seen as a bit of a sweet spot by the locals. Fishing fanatics will be intrigued to hear that more giant black marlin are caught in these waters than in the rest of the world combined!

4. Halong Bay, Vietnam

The iconic Halong Bay is a firm favourite with tourists thanks to its dramatic cliffs and jade-green waters. It’s also a wonderful place to go fishing, particularly if you’ve got a hankering for squid. Locals will catch squid with only a bamboo rod, a net and a lamp to attract them to the surface. You’ll have to be patient though; it can take some time for them to come up to the top. Get settled in with a neck pillow and plenty of hot tea.

5. Oostduinkerke, Belgium

You may not think it, but Belgium can be a great place to go fishing – especially for shrimp! The traditionalists gallop into the sea on horseback with nets to gather as many shrimp as they can. Visitors can also experience this when they team up with a tour guide.

6. Eg-Uur River Basin, Mongolia

Mongolia is famous for its stunning natural streams that run throughout the country’s breathtaking landscape. It’s also home to one of the world’s largest trout species, the taimen (also known as ‘river wolves’). They can grow up to 2m long and weigh in at 90kg. An exhilarating find for those who are brave enough.
