Five Idyllic Fishing Vacation Destinations

In the past, fishing was one of the tasks people did in order to survive. While there are still people who do fishing as a means of livelihood, more and more people are getting involved in fishing for sport and leisure. Fishing vacations are popular among anglers, with these holidays putting them in the element they like best: being one with nature. Great fishing vacations take people to idyllic places where they can spend time doing what they love. Listed below are some of the best destinations for fly fishing vacations.

1. Peggy’s Cove. No list of destinations for the perfect fishing vacations is complete without Peggy's Cove, which can be found in Canada. Known as the idyllic fishing village, Peggy's Cove is a great getaway for those who simply want to enjoy their time fishing. Aside from fishing, the place also offers great photography spots, as well as areas where you can go sightseeing, hiking, kayaking, birding, and shopping. Peggy's Cove is also located at an ideal spot, allowing you to gain access to Halifax, the South Shore, and the Annapolis Valley should you wish to visit the nearby towns.

2. Montana. Montana is a popular destination for those who want to experience great fly fishing vacations. In fact, the most avid fly fishers actually journey to Montana just so they can get the best catches, particularly trout. Some of the best spots for fishing in Montana include Yellowstone, Beaverhead, Madison, Bighorn, Gallatin, Big Hole, and Clark Fork. Fly fishing lodges can also be rented within the area so you don't need to stay away from the water for too long.

3. Alaska. Another popular destination for fishing vacations, Alaska has just about everything in store for nature lovers. With the beautiful view and the great catches (salmon and trout are common in the area), you have little to complain about should you choose the state as your destination. June is the best month to go to Alaska.

4. Norway. Norway has some of the largest and most abundant salmon you can ever find. If you're not a fan of salmon, you can also find a variety of fish that you can catch in the area. It's not just about the size: the fish in Norway are renowned for having really mouth-watering taste, so you really will enjoy fishing, both for the experience and for the culinary delights you get to enjoy on your vacation there. The fjords, mountains, and lakes of Norway are also worth seeing while you're there.

5. New Zealand. New Zealand isn't just famous for the exquisite scenery the land has been blessed with. The country is popular among anglers, and has in fact been dubbed as Anglers El Dorado. The best time to visit the country is during the summer. If you get tired of fishing, you won't get bored checking out the local sights, since New Zealand is one of the most gorgeous places in the world. A plus: it's also very quiet there, so you can enjoy your vacation in peace.

Fishing vacation packages can be arranged with travel agencies, or you can get together with your friends to plan the perfect fishing vacations. If you're more the type who prefers fishing alone, you can also plan your trip on your solo cruise. These destinations usually organize tours for anglers to bring them to the areas where they can have the best fishing experience, either saltwater or freshwater, either based on what's popular among tourists or what your personal preferences are. After all, it is your holiday, so you can have full control over what your fishing vacations will be like.
