If you love to fish and are planning to go on vacation, you may have considered visiting a destination that allows you to practice your skills and catch some unique marine species. For some inspiration, here are five destinations that are perfect for people who love fishing.

Minnesota

If you don’t want to go abroad, you can have an angling adventure in your home country. Florida, Texas and South Carolina are fantastic fishing destinations in the US, but if you feel ready to take your fishing skills to the next level, you should pay a visit to Minnesota Fishing Resort. Here, you can rent boats, hire a fishing guide and explore over 11,000 acres of water for a memorable fishing experience.

Cuba

Hunting marlin off Cuba is the best way to show your respects to Ernest Hemingway, the godfather of big game fishing. Hemingway is the writer of The Old Man and the Sea, which is a story of a heroicbattle between man and fish in the Gulf of Mexico. The author is honored by an annual fishing event and carnival that takes place near Havana and is an absolute must for people who love fishing.

Iceland

Iceland is the perfect destination for people who enjoy the cold and really want to get away from everything. The country has a unique volcanic landscape, that is stunning and enjoyable to explore. It also sets a very dramatic setting for anglers, while they spend their time fishing for brown trout, Arctic char and Atlantic salmon. If you visit at the right time of year, you can sleep under the Northern Lights.

Thailand

A trip to Phuket, Thailand, offers the perfect combination of sport fishing and a beach holiday for anglers. The waters that surround the Phuket resorts harbor a fantastic range of marine life, such as wahoo, dorado, marlin and tuna. Thailand is a beautiful country that allows visitors to stay in luxury accommodation on a budget, so you will be able to practice your passion while travelling in style.

Ireland

Mild temperatures throughout the year means that the climate in Ireland remains consistent, which has a positive effect on the waters. This makes Ireland one of the best places for fishing in Europe. You can find everything from bream to salmon, trout and pike in the country’s coastal waters and rivers. The hospitality in Ireland is world-famous and there will always be somewhere for you to celebrate a catch.

Fishing in another country can be an unforgettable and unique experience, no matter how proficient you are. As well as exploring a new destination, you will be able to get up close with different species and meet new people along the way.
