Many people enjoy the fabulous pastime of fishing and this is becoming more and more popular in Spain. As Britain’s most popular sport, it can be considered as a main source of income for many people.
There are many lakes and rivers scattered all over Spain with the river Ebro being the most well known. Here you can fish for record-breaking Wells catfish, carp and a variety of fresh water fish.
Spain is surrounded by water and therefore there is a huge relationship with the sea. From fishing villages to private fishing charters, just about any type of fishing is done here. Tourists and residents buy boats and go fishing, often mooring their boats in the Marinas. Commercial fishing boats operate from most of the harbours and ports along the coastline, as fish is a staple part of the Spanish diet.
Companies and private individuals have set up business along the shores of rivers, the coastline and in tourist areas, offering a variety of services for tourists and serious fisherman alike. As the industry grows, fishing shops and tackle outlets are springing up, offering the Spanish angler access to the latest fishing technologies.
Bespoke fishing services are being offered to the locals and to tourists, giving them the opportunity to supply all of the equipment and also offer unique accommodation, near these fishing venues. Hotels offer accommodation and some guiding services offer boats and all the equipment including flights and transfers, accommodation and tackle, including bait.
As with all purchases in Spain we highly recommend that you use a legal service to complete your purchase. This does ensure that the fishing property or business that you may decide to purchase in Spain will be checked properly and that the property is legally saleable.
Never buy a property for cash, no matter how good it sounds. Many properties on the side of rivers were initially built as a small casa de Campo, (farm buildings) offering the local farmers respite during the summer months and these have eventually been turned into bigger properties, many without the relevant permission for planning etc. With access to the riverfront, they have become popular with fishermen.
Our website portal will provide you with as many of these properties as we can find and display the information for you.
