Four Once-In-A-Lifetime Fishing Destinations

September 12, 2017

We all get used to our local lake, not that we will ever stop fishing there, but everyone needs a holiday. Fishing holidays are becoming more popular than ever, so if you have never been on one, then it is something you should seriously consider. Fishing abroad gives you chances to catch fish that you have never seen or heard of before — something every fisher should experience!


This is becoming an increasingly popular fishing destination, and more and more lakes are cropping up. Many of these are stocked lakes, filled with the largest fish from all over the world. This gives you an opportunity to catch Arapaima, Chao Phraya Catfish, Mekong Catfish, Siamese Carp, and Wallago Leeri. If you have not heard of any of these fish, look them up! The Arapaima is the biggest freshwater fish in the world, originally found in South America. It might not be the most natural experience, but there is no other way to fish a lake with so many different giants. A fishing trip to Thailand will give you all the wonder you are looking for.


In Alaska, the focus is on salmon. Depending on which season you target, you could catch silver salmon, chinook salmon, pink salmon, chum salmons and sockeye salmon. Aside from salmon, there are also halibut and rockfish, but an Alaskan fishing trip is also about the all-inclusive Alaska Fishing Lodge, such as the Silverking Lodge. At the end of each day, you can come back to comfortable rooms with amazing views, as you look over your catches. Whether you choose to take a boat out or not, you can always ask the staff or the locals for tips.

United Kingdom

From the very south of Britain to the very north of Scotland, the United Kingdom is full of lakes and rivers stocked with all kinds of fish. The benefit of taking a fishing break there is that you can experiment with all the different methods and environments. You may decide to use a simple lure to fish the rivers for pike, perch, and zander or you could bring a feeder rod to target the barbel and tench. There are hundreds of carp lakes that are stocked with hard-fighting fish, and if you go to the deeper lakes and lochs, you will find rarer species like arctic char.


If you want to stalk your way through a wild and luscious country, fishing in Chile is a great place to fly fish. You can catch brown and rainbow trout before a backdrop of snowy peaks and a clear sky. Some rivers and lakes are only accessible by horseback, so this truly is a trip for adventurous fishers, but it is also a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. There is an abundance of lodges that will make your evenings a voyage into absolute comfort and a great place to cook up all the trout you have caught. The more popular this holiday becomes, the more competition there will be, but for the moment you will find it easy to find help and equipment for a fishing holiday in Chile without finding it overcrowded.
