Peace, quiet, tranquillity and 'the one that got away was THIS big…' – South Devon is a fishing fan's paradise. With coasts, estuaries and rivers there is an abundance of locations to fish, whether you're a keen angler or just want to try out some sea fishing as part of a fun-filled West Country holiday.

South Devon's estuaries are tranquil, beautiful drowned river valleys that contain a mix of salt and fresh water fishing opportunities. Typical of this is the Dart Estuary, where from either bank or boat you can be sure of a good catch thanks to a good stock from season to season. There are plenty of good fishing spots to find along South Devon's estuaries, which are uncrowded and quiet – ideal for those peaceful hours where there is nothing but birdsong and rippling water to break the silence.
