The Duchy of Cornwall is a county with two coasts. On one side there are bustling holiday resorts, and on the other a tranquil, stunning coastline where you can fish and relax. One of the original dependable industries in Cornwall, fishing is still central to local culture. The sport of fishing naturally slows your body down and lets you unwind.
While the rugged North Coast will always attract a high percentage of anglers who are drawn to the impressive quality of the fishing, the gentler inclines of much of South Cornwall hide some great fishing spots as well. The Roseland Peninsula seems to be so tucked out of the way that many anglers don’t know it is even there. However, this area is known for big bass catches, also various flat fish and dogfish are caught here. For more experienced fisherman with climbing abilities, the headlands provide good fishing, but the access is difficult in places and not really suitable for the novice fisherman.
If course fishing is more your thing, then Cornwall has plenty of well stocked lakes around the county, or if you just want to try something different whilst on holiday, then you can find many charter boats which offer full or half day sea fishing trips. If you just want to spend a day locally, fishing with the family, then you can cast off from the jetty or rocks down in Portscatho, or try catching some crabs or goby fish in the rock pools at low tide.
