‘Fishing in Wales’ website now live – when, where and what to fish for in Wales!
The new Fishing in Wales website is here – featuring everything you need to know about Welsh angling. When, where and what to fish for – we have it covered!!
What will you find on the site?
A comprehensive Welsh angling resource for visitors and locals alike.
Working in collaboration with angling clubs, Welsh anglers, writers and influencers, the website includes key information on where, how and when to fish in Wales, for all angling disciplines.
Literally every place to fish in Wales has been covered, with over 1000 fishing locations for sea, game and coarse fishers. The website uses intuitive interactive maps, allowing you to find fishing and angling facilities in Wales quickly and easily!
You will also find information on where to stay at Visit Wales graded accommodation near or at fishing locations, where to purchase fishing tackle from local shops and where to hire a fishing guide or a charter boat skipper.
Additionally, the website will be regularly updated with quality written ‘blog’ articles from a wide variety of established and respected angling writers. The blog will also feature regular promotional videos that will showcase and inspire, created by Welsh angling film maker Rob Hughes.
A collective of 18 contributors will be writing for the site and taking part in the videos, many of whom have an established pedigree within the angling world, including Steffan Jones, George Barron, Adam Fisher, Hywel Morgan and Dave Lewis – to name just a few.
Fishing In Wales videos and written blog articles will be posted and shared regularly – so make sure you don’t miss out by ‘liking’ the Fishing In Wales Facebook page, subscribing to the YouTube Channel, or visiting the website and signing up – so you can be notified of the latest content each month!
But that’s not all… The site also features important information on fishing seasons and regulations, comprehensive beginners guides, information on Welsh fish species, how to get to Wales, places for disabled anglers to fish and the ability to book fishing online with the Wye and Usk Foundation’s Fishing Passport scheme!

“The Welsh environment offers a fantastic range of fishing, making it a sport for all. Getting people involved not only contributes to their physical and mental wellbeing but also helps them connect with nature.
“There are hundreds of community-based angling clubs across Wales and promoting angling opportunities is an important part of sustaining our fisheries. This website will provide local and visiting anglers with easy access to the very latest information. We are pleased to be working in partnership with the Angling Trust and Visit Wales to create a fantastic website.”
