Salt-water fly-fishing has seen explosive growth in the UK over the past few years – with bass as the prime target. These fish, lovers of crashing swell and rough, rocky, remote parts of the sea-shore, are fierce predators which take fly, lures and bait with equal enthusiasm. They used to be to mainly an English Channel quarry, but with the warming of the sea have spread up to Scotland. The Bass Anglers Sportfishing Society website - – is a good place to start searching for the best places.

Saltwater Fly Fishing

Saltwater flyfishing is becoming more and more popular for the sport angler. It provides a lighter weight method of delivering your presentation and a more conservative angle to the fight.

Saltwater flyfishing can be done effectively from a boat, shoreline, kayak, canoe or even a float tube.
