Your next fishing adventure begins now.

We interview fishing guides to help you make the most of your next trip

Fishing somewhere new? Whether you’re a complete beginner or you’re an old hand, we can probably help.

Unfamiliar waters are challenging to navigate. As fishing guides, we have worked in our local Cornish waters and also experienced what it’s like to be a novice in someone else’s. It’s tough. We aim to create grassroots fishing guides to waters around the UK and recommend the best gear for the mobile angler. Don’t come to us for safe mark access, as while this is very important, we aren’t the guys for the job.

Realistically, the main constraints to catching fish are 1) local knowledge, 2) having decent kit that works well, and 3) time investment. Most people can’t get all three of these things! Let’s help you make the most of the time you have on the water, in places that are hard to forget.

Feel free to get in touch directly via the chat icon – we’re here to help people plan their next trip or purchase. We may be able to recommend local guides, too, based on those that have contributed to the mag.

Or, sign up for our monthly newsletter for updates on what’s happening in coastal waters around the UK. The focus is on nature appreciation, stories from local guides and practical tips for anglers on the move.

Safety Disclaimer

Tides creep up on the best of us. Feet slip on wet rocks. The sea swallows anglers with the same indifference with which she smooths the beaches. Take care out there… FISHMAG guides are not instructive in terms of safety at all. Check weather and tides every time and RNLI angling safety guides.

About us

We help more people get out sea fishing in the UK. We are based in Cornwall, and run guided fishing trips from down here. Wherever you are, we hope we can help you catch more fish.

You will see Will and myself throughout the site, but we aim to document methods from guides around the UK & world
