A day spent in stylish Poole would be hard to beat with Europe’s largest natural harbour offering fantastic fishing locations, the bass, mullet and flounder are some of the best to be found anywhere. Fish from the harbour or beach or take to the sea on an exciting boat charter. The old town is lovey for people left a shore with an exciting mix of smugglers passageways and elegant houses. The Poole ‘Cockle Trail’ is good to follow and traces the town’s heritage. The town offers some of the best restaurants and bars to spend an hour or two discussing the catch of the day.

Charter boats are also high in demand at the popular coastal towns of Swanage, Weymouth and Christchurch, they can provide all the fishing tackle and bait as required for an exciting day out and welcome beginners. A day out at sea with the backdrop of this wonderful coastline will be one to remember.

As well as sea and coast fishing there is a good range of trout lakes throughout the county, some private, some publicly owned. Try the upper reaches of the river Stour for a nice mix of coarse fishing. There is a lovely fishery with views over Blackmore Vale, it is fed by clear spring waters form Batcombe Downs and the lakes are stocked with high-quality Brown and Rainbow Trout. Don’t miss the opportunity to fish on the river Avon with quality roach, dace, barbel, perch and pike to try and tempt to your hook.
