One of the best ways to make your holiday a budget vacation is to choose a fishing holiday in the UK. Fortunately, the UK has a huge variety of holiday destinations which are perfect for fishing, ensuring you don`t have to break the bank to get there.
Indeed, the UK`s coastline offers some of the finest fishing resorts in the world. Furthermore, you will always have options, whether you prefer sea fishing or course fishing and being closer to home not only means your trip will be far less expensive but you will also have much more time to fish.
In addition, many of the UK`s fishing destinations have a plethora of alternative activities on offer, which will be sure to keep the rest of the family amused should they not share your love of fishing. Perhaps best of all, should you forget some vital piece of tackle or other equipment, you will not have to struggle too much to obtain an equivalent.
The variety of fish available in UK waters is not lacking either. Included are roach, tench, barbel and, of course, carp. Indeed, carp — often referred to as the `great un-catchable` — remain one of the real challenges of anglers everywhere. Distinctive in appearance and enjoying one of the longest lifespans of all fish, the carp continues to thrive in lakes, canals and rivers throughout the country.
However, many anglers will tell you that their very favourite variety remains the roach. Known as being highly tolerant to a variety of conditions the roach is thus found in a huge range of environments throughout the UK. Furthermore, being a shoaling species (which means it remains active all year round) roach can also be found in abundance during the cold winter months.
Barbel, on the other hand, are not always so easy to locate. However, their beautiful, bronzed appearance and their tenacious character makes them one of the biggest prizes in the entire angling world. Generally preferring the lower reaches of the waters, the barbel are most commonly found in cleaner rivers lined with gravel. Finally the tench — also known as `Doctor Fish` — are found in most canals and lakes while they tend to prefer low-land rivers and are very rare in the northerly parts of Scotland.
Fortunately, there are now a number of fishing holiday providers available that offer a wide range of package holidays that allow you to enjoy the best fishing climates around whilst staying in quality accommodation. While there are always plenty of top-class hotels available you will always have the option of staying in a budget campsite or caravan park should you be fishing for a budget trip. Furthermore, a little online research could land you some great low cost holidays discount codes, which will save you even more money.
