Sandy Cape National Park, Western Australia
If you are looking for a destination where you can camp on the beach (legally) without being part of a caravan park, this is the setting for you.
The glorious Cape National Park is just 10km to the north of Jurien Bay, and is not too far from Perth. Many people enjoy the diving on offer in the area, but it is the fishing that grabs our attention.

Lake Michigan, Illinois
When it comes to names known all over the world, we think you’ll instantly recognise Lake Michigan. Found in the Midwest, it’s a name synonymous with the United States of America, of being at one with nature, and of course, with fishing.

Great Abaco Island, Bahamas
If you hanker for sea fishing, the Bahamas is the place to be. The resorts here have some of the finest fishing guides known to man, and if you are looking for expert advice, you will receive top-notch information and guidance.
For many people, it is the presence of marlin that draws them to the Great Abaco Island, but once you are out on the water, you will enjoy the best spots for a wide range of fish. As you make your way out to deeper water, you can fish for tuna and barracuda alongside the marlin.
If you are more of a fly-fishing enthusiast, you should check out the saltwater flats that are around the island.
While you find yourself in a breath-taking setting with rolling green hills, mountains and valleys around you, your focus will still be on the fishing.
Fly fishing for trout is one of the leading activities here, and with so many great spots to fish, you’ll find that this is one of the most popular destinations in Ireland for fishing.
There are hotels with their own fishing facilities, such as the Grand Ballynahinch Castle Hotel. These are costly, but you don’t need to worry about obtaining a fishing licence when you book here. It is possible to camp in the local area and enjoy a spot of fishing where it takes your fancy, but make sure you have the appropriate licence in place.
Salmon River, New York
The name alone should tell you how great this place. Some people tell you that New York, New York is so good they named it twice, but how can you beat a name called Salmon River, New York?
This is a destination that welcomes competitive anglers for most of the year, so make sure you bring your best fishing skills.
If you are looking to camp where you fish, the tributary of Lake Ontario allows you to do this. Anyone who is keen to fish for salmon will find no better destination than this river!
