With the advent of capable multi-piece travel rods, lightweight waders and budget air travel, fishing overseas is now more accessible than ever before. Whether its a fishing focussed trip, a few days off during a family vacation or as part of mixed sport holiday, fishing overseas gives the opportunity to chase species and specimens not available at home.

Fact File

Why buy overseas fishing from an agent?

We can’t speak for everyone, but at Outside Days we put a lot of thought, time and commitment into selecting our overseas partners. A careful and rigorous selection process (usually including a guinea pig trip) is undertaken so that we know the team in country, and can share with you what to expect. A sporting holiday should include plenty of challenges, but we do our utmost to ensure that these are sporting and not lifestyle. To that end:

  • We will ensure that the guides/hosts at your destination are proficient in the trade and understand what you, as a client want
  • We will ensure all relevant fishing licenses and permits are in place

In short, we take the trouble, stress and effort out of enjoying your sport abroad.

Flying with fishing rods

We advise that all clients view the web site of the airline they are flying with, print out the guidelines  and take them with you. Very often the airline staff are not aware of their own regulations.

Travel fishing rods have made life much easier for the jet-setting angler but if you need to use an additional rod case make sure it is of the non-crush variety. It’s upsetting to break a favourite rod when hooked into a fish of a lifetime but really upsetting to turn up at you arrival airport to find your broken rods appear on the carousel.

Most airlines travelling to or from the UK have a baggage allowance of 20kg to 23kg and some include the sporting equipment allowance within that however some do charge extra.
