See the world and fish!

When it comes to fly-fishing-vacations you will find that there is no shortage of destinations. Quite the opposite in fact. If anything there is too much choice. With so many places to choose from how do you decide which is the right fly-fishing-vacation for you?

The first thing to do is to sit down and think about exactly what type of holiday you want. Be specific, decide where you want to go, when, the type of fishing you are interested in, will you be going alone or with friends-maybe you are a member of a fishing club and will be going with them. How much can you afford to spend? It is surprising how many people resolve to go on a fishing trip without considering any of the points mentioned above. With no clear idea of what they want they spend hours looking at trout fishing holidays in Portugal only to change their minds when they spot an advertisement for salmon fishing in Ireland!

If you are travelling with a group then you will have to consider the wishes of your travelling companions and some compromises will probably have to be made.

There are also likely to be different temperaments and skill levels which will have to be taken into account.

Different people will also have differing attitudes to fishing. Some may be dedicated to their sport to the extent that all they want to do all day, every day is fish. Others may not be quite so keen.

These differences may not be too much of a problem if you are going fishing with two or three close friends. You will already know before you set off what they like, but if you are going on a club trip with perhaps, twenty or thirty others you do not want to find yourself in the position of being coerced into doing things you are not that interested in simply because it is the wish of the majority.

Another thing to consider when planning your trip is have you been on similar fly-fishing-vacations before or is this your first? Most of us who have been sea fishing will know of people who have spent the entire trip lying in the bottom of the boat being sick. They obviously had no previous experience of small boats but thought fishing from an open boat would be fun. How wrong could they be? The point is if you have never been on a fly-fishing-vacation or indeed on any kind of fishing trip then don’t take risks, stick to the riverbank. If that doesn’t do it for you then you can always slope off to the pub.

Fly-fishing-vacations can be a great way to spend your holidays but, like any holiday plan carefully in advance so that your precious free time on the riverbank or on the open seas remains incident free, leaving you to concentrate on the fish.
